Sen. Alice Forgy Kerr Will Not Seek Re-Election

After 23-years in the General Assembly, state Sen. Alice Forgy Kerr, R-Lexington, has announced she will not seek another term in the upper chamber.

“After much prayerful consideration, I have decided that I will not be a candidate for reelection in 2022,” Kerr announced on Wednesday evening. “I make this decision knowing that there are other capable individuals in the district that will give voters a choice as to who will represent the 12th Senate District beginning in 2023.”

Kerr said it has been an honor and a privilege to represent Fayette County in the Kentucky Senate for the last 23 years.

“My heart is full of gratitude and appreciation to the voters who have elected me six times as their state senator in Frankfort,” she said. “Throughout my tenure in the General Assembly, I have tried to be a loyal and faithful servant for my district.”

Larry Forgy, Kerr’s brother, was the GOP nominee for governor in 1995.
