Representative Lynn Bechler has filed for re-election to represent the citizens of the state’s 4th House District, which is comprised of Caldwell, Crittenden and Livingston counties and a portion of Christian County.
Bechler is a ranking member of the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee and also serves on the Economic Development and Workforce Investment and small business and Information Technology committees.
“I’m so honored that the people of this community have put their trust and faith in me to serve them in Frankfort, and I hope they will continue to do so. It is a responsibility that I take seriously. I’m running for re-election because I’m proud of the work we’re doing to move our state forward and put Kentucky families first,” Bechler said in a news release. “My work in the General Assembly is not something I take lightly, and I haven’t forgotten that the people of this district are my first priority.”
While the state has seen record high business investment and the lowest unemployment rates in history, Bechler believes the work is not done.
“The growth we have seen in this state is the direct result of the policies we are putting into place,” Bechler added. “However, we still have a great deal to do to ensure that prosperity reaches every corner of our Commonwealth.”
Among the tasks legislators face in the Kentucky General Assembly 2020 session is the state’s two-year budget, a complicated spending plan that includes funding for roads and bridges, as well as other state projects and programs.
