I am Richard White the State Representative for District 99, Elliot, Lewis, and Rowan Counties. I am a blessed man of God as I have a beautiful wife, Valerie, and four wonderful children, Jason, Betsy, Suzanna, and Emily.
I support President Trump and his commitment to economic growth for Kentucky. And, as a businessman of over 45 years, I understand how to create jobs, and the role education plays in our global economy. As a pro-life Christian, I will stand up for your most important constitutional rights, the second amendment, freedom of speech, and religion. And, in these unprecedented times economic recovery is key.
