Rep. Richard Heath to Face Dem Challenger in 2nd District
Mayfield attorney Jesse Wright says he’ll run for the 2nd District state House seat held by first term Republican incumbent Richard Heath.
The Democrat is an alumnus of Mayfield High School, the University of Kentucky, and Georgia State. He has practiced law in Mayfield since moving back to the region in 2011.
Wright is on the Graves County Board of Health and a volunteer instructor for the county’s Teen Court. Wright says he entered the race because he believes the community can do better for themselves and for their children.
