LEXINGTON, KY — Today, U.S. Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06), is endorsing Lexington Councilwoman Amanda Mays Bledsoe for the open Senate seat in Kentucky’s 12th Senate District.
“Amanda Mays Bledsoe is a proven leader who, as Chair of the City’s Council’s Budget Committee, played a key role in engineering Lexington’s economic boom,” said Congressman Andy Barr. “Amanda’s extensive record of public service prepares her to make an impact in Frankfort on Day 1. If Kentuckians in District 12 send Amanda to Frankfort, they will ensure that Law Enforcement will have another strong advocate in Frankfort. Amanda will fight to give them the resources they need to reduce crime and stop the flow of deadly fentanyl that is fueling our opioid epidemic. I fully endorse Amanda Mays Bledsoe and urge my friends and neighbors in Fayette, Woodford, Mercer, and Boyle counties to elect her on November 8.”
“I am honored to have both the friendship and endorsement from Congressman Andy Barr,” said Councilwoman Amanda Mays Bledsoe. “Congressman Barr has been a shining example of someone who tirelessly advocates for his constituents, achieving tangible results for the betterment of our Community. It is my hope to provide that same level of tenacity in Frankfort, should the voters of District 12 elect me as their next State Senator.”
