I am running for re-election for State Representative to be the conservative voice for the people of the 85th District.
It has truly been an honor to represent the people of the 85th House District throughout 2021. This first year has been quite busy, filled with learning experiences, meeting wonderful people, and helping pass meaningful legislation to protect the values of the people of Kentucky.
In addition, this year also had its challenges. Much of my summer was spent caring for my parents who succumbed to long-term illnesses.
I look forward to a bright 2022, and hope to meet many more of you in the months ahead.
