Bob Glenn running for Kentucky State Senate

(Your Local Election Headquarters) – Three-term Owensboro City Commissioner Bob Glenn has filed to run for Kentucky State Senate as a Democrat.

“It has been an honor to serve as our community as Mayor Pro Tem. I feel it’s important to move forward in order to provide a strong voice in Frankfort for working families, teachers, first responders, students, public employees, and small business owners,” said Glenn.

Glenn said in his time as city commissioner, several major downtown projects have been completed and others are on schedule to open in the next year, including the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and the Enclave.

Glenn is a veteran faculty member at Owensboro Community and Technical College, where has served as a tenured Professor of Communication and as Director of Forensics.

He has a Doctoral degree in Communication from the University of Southern Mississippi.

“We are at a critical point in the future of the Commonwealth. We have leaders in Frankfort who claim they believe in workforce development and education, yet they have consistently cut higher education and K-12 education substantially over the past decade. Now, they intend to fix the pension crisis on the backs of working families by again cutting the State budget, while also piling increased pension payment requirements upon cities and counties. When these mandates are imposed, municipal governments and fiscal courts across the State may be forced to drastically cut essential services and increase taxes to fund that mandate. We need leaders who are willing to look for new revenue sources to address the pension crisis and address critical shortfalls in state funding for social services, education, health care, and workforce development,” said Glenn.
