Birth of Kentucky treasurer’s son makes history

FRANKFORT, KY — Kentucky Treasurer Allison Ball is the first state constitutional officer to give birth while in office. She gave birth to her son, Levi Adrian Swan, on Tuesday.

Ball’s husband is Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Chief of Staff Asa James Swan. The cabinet tweeted a photo Thursday congratulating the new parents on the birth of their first child.
