Representative Susan Westrom, MSW
Representative Susan Westrom
Susan was elected to serve as State Representative of the 79th district located in Lexington, Kentucky, in November 1998. Realizing how easy it is for women to be pegged as legislators who focus only on children and family, she diligently pursued legislation from a broad array of topics. She has done much to benefit seniors and children and the industries that provide services for them. She has also successfully drafted bills that relate to small business, real estate, health and welfare, medical issues and consumer protection. In addition, she has become the champion supporter of our two signature industries- equine and bourbon. Susan has now served for sixteen years and has never taken one day for granted.
