C.B. Embry Jr., incumbent Republican candidate for Kentucky State Senate District 6

Submitted by C.B. Embry Jr., incumbent Republican candidate for Kentucky State Senate District 6

Imagine a full-time State Senator who has a proven 16-year record of supporting legislation that promotes fundamental family values, education, economic development, senior citizens (AARP), family farmers, veterans, the truly needy, our working men and women and volunteer fire departments and second amendment rights.

Imagine a legislator who is in his office at the Capitol Annex each session of the Kentucky General Assembly, from January through mid-April, at 6 a.m. EST answering his contacts (letters, faxes, e-mails, phone and Facebook messages) himself, and not using staff or form letters. He does this so that he will know firsthand the opinions and concerns of the citizens of the Sixth District. He is a legislator who answers only to the citizens and not to Frankfort politicians.

Imagine a legislator who, May through December, not only attends his seven official monthly legislative committees and sub-committees, but also attends no less than 20 to 25 meetings or community events in the four counties that make up the Sixth District, and has done so in the District he serves for the past 16 years. He takes that action in order to stay in tune with the majority opinions of the citizens he represents.

C.B. Embry serves as Senate Chairman of the Tobacco Settlement Agreement Fund Oversight Committee and as Vice-Chairman of the Veterans, Military Affairs & Public Protection Committee. He is the former State Chairman of the Kentucky Coal County Coalition and has a 44-year record of strongly supporting Kentucky coal and coal miners. Over the years, he has served, at one time or another, as president or chairman of 16 different local, regional or state-wide public service organizations.

C.B. Embry is a former mayor of Beaver Dam and three-term Ohio County Judge-Executive. He is a member of the Ohio County Chamber of Commerce, Gideon’s International, Bannock F & AM, Shriners and serves as a Deacon and Sunday School Director at the Baptist church, where he is a member. He is a graduate of Western Kentucky University and Beaver Dam High School. Wanda and C.B. Embry have been lifetime Ohio County property owners and all three of their children live in Ohio County.

“If you remember only one thing, should I be selected to represent the Sixth State Senate District for a second term, I will serve you full-time and in the same style and with the same energy and effort I have done for the past 16 years in the Kentucky General Assembly. I most humbly ask for you to please vote for C.B. Embry Jr on Nov. 6.

I welcome and greatly value your opinions on issues for the Kentucky General Assembly. I can be reached by e-mail at [email protected] or by calling the toll-free message line at 1-800-372-7181 and asking that your message be sent to my desk.”
