After nearly a decade in the state legislature Rep. Bart Rowland, R-Tompkinsville, is announcing he will not seek another term in the 21st District House seat.
Rowland said he is looking to more time at home working at his insurance agency and on the family farm.
He was first elected in a special election in 2012, and will serve out his term ending in Dec. of 2022. Rowland is the Chairman of the House Banking and Insurance Committee.
“While I am extremely disappointed that Bart won’t be running for another term, I appreciate the work he has done on behalf of his district and our state and wish him the absolute best,” said House Speaker David Osborne. “You can count on Bart Rowland to do the right thing every time, and you know he’s more interested in solving a problem than getting credit for the solution. We need more leaders like him in Frankfort.”
The 21st House District runs vertically and includes part of Hardin, all of Hart, Metcalfe, and Monroe County.
