Senate Candidate Meyer Officially Files for Office.

Democrat Marty Meyer, District Representative for Congressman John Yarmuth, and son of retired State Senator and Louisville Alderman Danny Meyer officially filed as a candidate for Kentucky’s 38th District Senate Seat on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 at 10:30 AM. Meyer will brings with him a strong fund raising track record and a wealth of endorsements which he has procured from elected officials and local unions. He was joined by friends and family in Frankfort as he filed the necessary paperwork to knock that ogre Dan Seum off his perch and bring new blood to the State Senate.

“For years, the citizens of the 38th Senate District have not had access to the type of responsive government they deserve,” Meyer said, “I look forward to continuing to hear from individuals and families in the community and sharing my commitment to receptive and accessible government.” Incumbent Dan Seum, who was elected as a Democrat, pulled a bait-and-switch on the voters and became a Republican, laid the groundwork for David Williams' embarrassing takeover of the Kentucky Senate.

One of the elected officials strongly backing Marty Meyer’s run for the Senate is Congressman John Yarmuth, whose campaigns and district office Meyer has worked for since January 2006. In a letter of support Congressman Yarmuth praised Meyer saying, “It has been a great honor for me to work alongside Marty for the third Congressional district, and I can attest from personal experience to his dedication, persistence, and commitment to improving the lives of all Kentuckians.”

Marty Meyer is a longtime resident of the 38th District. He has volunteered on political campaigns for much of his life, and currently works as the District Representative for Congressman Yarmuth. Marty Meyer looks forward to serving the constituents of the 38th district.
