Progress starts with Stevenson
According to Cherlynn Stevenson, it’s time for ordinary citizens to rise from the sidelines and reset the standards we expect from our elected representatives.
Stevenson is running for the state’s 88th House District representing part of Fayette County.
A native and lifelong Kentuckian, Stevenson is the daughter of a retired elementary school teacher and a United States Army veteran who retired from the coal mining industry.
They taught Cherlynn the value of sacrifice, hard work, service above self and familial ties at an early age, and she’s never abandoned those core tenets.
“It is time for ordinary citizens to rise from the sidelines and reset the standards we expect from our elected representatives,” Stevenson said. “Kentucky deserves a government that stops dragging us backward and propels us forward. That forward motion can begin in the 88th House District.”
A graduate of Morehead State University, Stevenson has worked in the wellness and hospitality industries serving large corporations, hospitals, and non-profit organizations focused on building a better community for all.
Throughout her career, Stevenson centrally focused on providing opportunity, education and enablement that serves people and their best interests. She’s an acknowledged leader with a remarkable ability to understand community concerns and unify the effort to resolve them.
According to Stevenson, a better Kentucky starts with a fully-funding public education; fully funding pensions for public employees, teachers and first responders; finding real solutions to the opioid crisis; equitable tax reform; new revenue streams; access to quality, affordable health care for all and renewable energy sources.
Stevenson continues to develop her experience and represents Kentucky in communities across the country in partnership with organizations such as The Breeder’s Cup, RunTheBluegrass and Distilled Living.
She’s served and led associations such as the Rotary Club of Lexington, CASA of Lexington, American Heart Association, The Hope Center and Habitat for Humanity.
Her true passion project has been the American Cancer Society, where she’s championed the cause and helped to fundraise more than $2 million in the fight against cancer. She continues to advocate for patients at the local, state and federal level governments via their Cancer Action Network.
