State Senator Jerry Rhoads, D-Madisonville, was first elected to the Kentucky State Senate in 2002 and has served three terms representing Western Kentucky’s 6th district which is comprised of Butler, Hopkins, Muhlenberg and Ohio counties.
Rhoads, who has been a practicing attorney since 1966, currently serves as the Democratic Minority Whip of the Senate. The General Assembly was not something new for the Rhoads family as his father served two terms in the Kentucky House of Representatives.
Now, 12 years after being first elected, Rhoads concludes his legislative career after
deciding not to seek a 4th term.
