2 vie for state rep seat

GLASGOW — Republican incumbent Bart Rowland, a Monroe County businessman, will face Democratic candidate Thomas Dodson, a Monroe County beef cattle farmer, for a seat to represent the Kentucky House of Representatives' 53rd District.

Rowland, of Tompkinsville, won the May primary over  opponents Freddy Harbison, of Metcalfe County, and Richard Treitz, of Greensburg.

Rowland won a special-election in February to fill the unexpired term of James R. Comer, who resigned in January to assume his new duties as the state's agriculture commissioner.

Rowland is seeking re-election for the same reasons he initially sought the seat.

“Being a small business owner and the father of the three small children, I am concerned about the ability and the future of those kids to have a job and stay in the district should they wish to do so,” he said.

He continued it is important to begin work to recruit companies that might be interested in locating in the district that could offer employment opportunities to those who live there.

Rowland said he is also interested making continued improvements to roads and infrastructure in the district.
