Leslie Stith filed the necessary paperwork last week to become a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Kentucky State Senate District 5. He was joined by Senate Democratic Whip Julian Carroll and Senator Dennis Parrett in Frankfort when he filed.
“I have known Leslie for several years and believe that he will make an excellent Senator,” said Parrett.
“I have a passion for public service and giving back to my community,” Stith said. “I’m very excited to be in this race. I look forward to traveling the six counties in this district, meeting with every person I can, and discussing the issues we face as Kentuckians. I know that, if elected, I will be a strong voice for this district in Frankfort. Anyone that knows me, knows I am a man of my word.”
Leslie Stith earned a B.S. in Agricultural Education from the University of Kentucky. He retired from the Monsanto Company where he was recognized for distinguished service. He is married to Donna Robinson Stith, formerly of Breckenridge County. They reside on an active row cropping farm in Meade County where they continue to grow corn, soybeans and hay.
Kentucky Senate District 5 includes Breckenridge, Edmonson, Grayson, Hart, Larue and Meade Counties.
