“It has been my great honor to serve the 37th district in the Kentucky State Senate,” Senator Clark said. “There are critical issues facing Louisvillians, such as the need for adequate health care and for quality education. With the support of my constituents, I am eager to continue my efforts in these areas and others that are important to move Kentucky forward.”
Senator Clark pledges to continue to work toward creating jobs and helping small businesses; getting adequate funding for the schools; standing up for organized labor; working for better benefits for veterans and military families, and protecting Louisville’s seniors and other vulnerable citizens.
The Senator also has strong backing from his district on public policy that he is sponsoring, including the legalization of medical cannabis and more recently the Cannabis Freedom Act.
“I feel that my job in Frankfort is not yet complete,” said Senator Clark. “I still have work to do for the people in the South End of Louisville and will continue to be their voice in the Kentucky General Assembly.”
Senator Clark has served in the State Senate since 2006. He was a member of the House of Representatives from 1995-2006. He currently sits on the Senate Economic Development, Tourism and Labor; Judiciary, and Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Protection committees. He is also a liaison member of the Budget Review Subcommittee on Economic Development and Tourism, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection.
There are always challenges before members of the General Assembly, but the Senator says he is ready to work toward solutions.
“I am honored by the trust the residents of our district have placed in me, and I never take that for granted,” Senator Clark said. “I continue to make the needs and concerns of our constituents my priority.”
A native of Louisville’s South End, Senator Clark is a University of Louisville employee and a veteran of the U.S. Navy. He and his wife of 35 years, Sheila, have a son, Martin who is currently serving in the U.S. Navy and a daughter, Angela who is librarian.
