After being defeated in a negative, misleading and expensive 2016 campaign, Terry Mills decided to seek reelection, “because our current leaders have not shown care and respect for the citizens of this commonwealth.”
Mills is fighting to get his seat back in the state’s 24th House District which includes Green, Larue and Marion counties.
The incumbent Republican opponent, Rep. Brandon Reed, hasn’t helped Kentuckians but instead passed legislation hurting them.
“Brandon Reed promised our citizens positive change when he was elected in 2016. Since then, he has voted to lower wages and benefits for hard-working Kentuckians, to allow charter schools which takes money away from our public schools, to reduce funding for education, to cut teachers and state workers’ pensions, and to raise taxes on lower and middle income workers while lowering taxes for wealthy individuals and big corporations,” Mills said. “These are not positive changes.”
Mills’ said his focus will be on “helping middle-class folks by working for fair wages and fair treatment of small businesses. I believe in public education and want to strengthen it to make it the best it can be. Compassionate healthcare and helping those who truly need help are also a priority.”
Once elected, Mills pledges to work “in a bipartisan fashion to ensure quality educations for our children, to secure the pensions of our hardworking public employees and teachers, and bring good jobs and economic growth to the commonwealth.”
Mills believes middle and low-income workers and small business owners should be given the same respect huge corporations are given.
Born the second of 12 children in a small community in Marion County, Mills graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1973 with a business administration degree. Mills worked for the Social Security Administration in Campbellsville for 35 years.
He and his wife Patty have been married for 48 years. They have three children and seven grandchildren.
He’s been active in his community and church for several years.
Mills represented the 24th District from February 2010 to 2017.
