Protecting our communities starts with Lacer
The three most important things in Bobby Lacer’s life are God, family, and country.
Lacer is running for the state’s 58th House District representing all of Shelby County.
“Without these three things, I would not be the man I am today,” Lacer said. “To me, our country, state, and local community are simply our ‘home’. We must all do everything within our power to protect our home for ourselves and the generations to follow.”
Lacer is running to unseat Republican incumbent Rep. Rob Rothenberger. Lacer’s opponent voted in favor of the sewage pension bill rammed through by the Republican majority in both chambers in one day of the 2018 legislative session without a public hearing. Lacer’s opponent also voted for the passage of the workers compensation bill affecting Kentucky’s working class including our first responders.
Since taking office, the Republican incumbent has voted for of right-to-work, repeal of prevailing wage — driving down wages for construction work on public projects and charter school bills.
For Lacer, his race is about the people of Kentucky — not Democrats or Republicans. It’s about providing honest answers while working to protect the needs of their local communities, their access to education, adequate healthcare, civil rights, public safety, and economic interests.
“Kentuckians have all become weary of politicians who have been bought and paid for by special interests and who view the world through a partisan lens instead of considering the best interest of those they are supposed to represent,” Lacer said. “My promise to you and your families is that I will work for the betterment of all of the people of this great commonwealth without regard for partisan politics. It is time that we reach across party lines to build a better Bluegrass.”
Lacer has worked in financial services for over 20-years and has taught as an adjunct professor since 2005 for numerous Kentucky colleges, including KCTCS, Sullivan University, and the former Mid-Continent University. He has also taught for local high schools and middle schools.
He’s volunteered as a coach and official for multiple youth sports for many years Lacer is a 2007 graduate of Leadership Kentucky and in 2006, he was awarded the “President’s Call to Service Award” from the White House for his many years of community service. He was specifically recognized for his many years of public service as a firefighter, search & rescuer, and public safety officer.
Bobby and his family have lived in Shelby County for many years, have become very active in the community and call Shelby County their home. They love this community and the people who live in it.
