Cox ready to make a difference in House
Jarrett Cox is a lifelong resident of Cub Run in Hart County and he wants to make a difference for our state and its residents.
Cox is running for the state’s 21st House District which includes Hart, Metcalfe, Monroe and part of Hardin counties.
Jarrett has strong stances for strengthening public education, eliminating forced arbitration, supporting the descheduling and legalization of medicinal cannabis and abolishing laws that weaken workers’ abilities for better wages and benefits.
When it comes to education, Cox believes students are “the future and it is a massive disservice to them to continually shovel more of the financial responsibility to the counties and,” Kentucky’s school districts.
“I’m running because I want to make a difference and I want to represent everyone,” Cox said. “As a first-generation high school graduate that was fortunate enough to be able to attend and graduate from college, I know the value of education.
“I’m the son of a union worker and I want to work as hard for the people of District 21 as he did for our family.”
Cox graduated from Hart County High School in 2011 with honors and as a member of the National Beta Club and the National Honor Society. He earned two associate degrees in Computer Information Technology from Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.
While at ECTC, he served three terms as the ECTC Student Government Association president and the student representative to the ECTC Board of Directors. Cox currently serves as the vice president of ECTC’s Student Government Association.
Cox’s bid for the House has been endorsed by the Kentucky State UAW Community Action Program (CAP) Council representing the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace & Agriculture Implement Workers of America.
