A member of the Kentucky House has joined a crowded field of candidates for State Treasurer.
Democratic Representative Jim Glenn of Owensboro says he’d like to help more families become financially literate.
“I ran in the fall initially to help the worker class and the middle class families of the state and this is just another vehicle to do it," said Glenn.
Glenn teaches business and economics at Owensboro Community and Technical College.
Glenn will face three other Democrats in the primary election, including Representative Rick Nelson of Middlesboro, former Representative Richard Henderson of Mount Sterling, and Louisville businessman Neville Blakemore. Two Republicans are seeking the Treasurer’s office, including Prestonsburg attorney Allison Ball and Representative Kenny Imes of Murray.
