Belcher dedicated to Bullitt County

Known as one of the most effective legislators fighting for pay equity, public education, and organized labor, Linda Belcher is running for reelection to the state’s 49th House District which includes Bullitt County.

During her time as a representative, she has worked to pursue excellence in education via legislation and serving as the vice chair of the Education Committee in the House.

She has also served as the chair for Improving Job Skills for Inmates, the co-chair for the Bullitt County Strategic Plan Committee, chair of Democratic Women Legislators, and the chair of the House Democratic Women Caucus.

Belcher served as the co-chair of the Capital Projects and Bonds Oversight Committee and also served on the Education Assessment and Accountability Review Subcommittee, the Local Government Committee, and the Labor and Industry Committee. She was also the vice chair of the Budget Review Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education.

Her dedication to her constituents is proven in her record at the statehouse.

“During the 6.5  years I have served as state representative for Bullitt County,” said Belcher, “I have been able to secure millions of dollars for new roads, road improvements and infrastructure.”

A member and greeter at the Little Flock Baptist Church, Belcher has served as both a board member and board chair for their Christian Academy.

The committees she has served on in Frankfort allowed her to either sponsor or cosponsor legislation to improve the lives of all Kentuckians. Her activities in Bullitt County also contribute to making the community a better place to live.

“I always run a positive campaign and have many workers, of both parties,” Linda said, “who support me as we knock on doors and make phone calls.”

Belcher has been active in the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce, Little Flock Baptist Church, Educational Foundation, Bullitt County Women’s Club, VFW Auxiliary 5710, Housing First, HOPE, Democrat Woman’s Club, Partners in Prevention, PTA member, Bullitt County Retired Teachers Association and Bullitt County Democratic Executive Committee. She also attends city council meetings, school functions and fiscal court meetings in order to learn about the needs of Bullitt County residents.
