Ninth District State Representative Myron Dossett had two opponents in the election at one point this year, but finds himself alone on the ballot now for a fourth term.
Initial re-districting legislation passed by both chambers of the Kentucky General Assembly merged portions of the 9th and 10th Districts, meaning he would have had to face Representative Ben Waide in the primary before facing north Christian County resident Scotty Parsons in the general election.
The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled the re-districting legislation as unconstitutional and allowed candidates to run in their old districts—leaving Dossett without an opponent.
Representative Dossett says he’s been honored to serve his constituents since 2007.
Dossett says his core beliefs and principles learned from his parents in Pembroke helped him learn how to work across party lines and with people of different opinions.
Representative Dossett represents portions of Christian County including Pembroke, Crofton and Oak Grove.
