WKU Student Declares State House Candidacy

 

wku red blackBOWLING GREEN, KY (1/27/12) – Kendrick Bryan, 24, served as a student council officer at Central Hardin High School before he journeyed to Western Kentucky University. Today, he is serving in his third term as an officer in the WKU Student Government Association.
 
Bryan, an Elizabethtown resident, plans to compete for a seat in the State House of Representatives. Bryan lives in the 25th House District. The area is currently represented by a Democrat, Jimmie Lee.
 
The graduate student is an opponent of the role of money in politics and will not accept funds from political action committees or special interest groups. Bryan plans to release ads on YouTube.
 
If elected, the candidate plans to launch a website for constituents. It would feature his voting record, a log of office visitors and the budget outline for his office.
 
Bryan is a 2005 graduate of Central Hardin and a 2009 graduate of WKU. The candidate was a Governor’s Scholar in high school and received an Alumni Leadership Scholarship at WKU.
 
After completing a Bachelor’s degree in History and Social Studies, Bryan returned to WKU and is now completing a Master’s degree in School Counseling. He also serves as a substitute teacher and volleyball coach at LaRue County High School. He taught Social Studies at Central Hardin from January 2011 to June 2011.
 
Bryan, a Democrat, plans to run a clean campaign. His campaign slogan is, “Enhance the Heartland.”
 
He is emphasizing accountability, accessibility, education, fiscal restraint, job growth, transparency and veteran assistance. The candidate seeks to be the most transparent official in the Kentucky General Assembly.
 
The Bryan family is no stranger to public service. Kendrick’s father is a building inspector for Hardin County and his mother is a diabetes educator at Hardin Memorial Hospital.
   
Bryan was inspired to run because he acknowledges that voters are not proud of the greed and gridlock in Frankfort. He also thinks elected officials can do more to promote local job opportunities. If elected, Bryan intends to partner with the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training and the WKU Career Services Center to sponsor job fairs and town hall meetings.
 
He stresses that education is his primary issue and plans to fight for funding for schools. Moreover, he plans to emphasize adult education, campus safety, high-speed internet and library development.
 
He also intends to sponsor essay contests, geography challenges, mock elections, slogan contests and spelling bees. Bryan is an advocate of civic education and accompanied the LCHS delegation to the Kentucky Youth Assembly. The group was honored at the conference.
 
Bryan is an alumnus of American Legion Boys State, Hardin County Youth Leadership and the Kentucky Leadership Academy.
 
Primary Election Day is May 22.
 
Contact: Kendrick Bryan for State Representative, 270-312-3727. Please call after 1:30 p.m. ET on Friday, January 27, 2012.
