Sparrow runs against Harmon

January 29, 2004

David Sparrow, former longtime agricultural extension agent for Boyle County, now wants to plow political fields.

He is running as a Democrat for the 54th District state House seat now occupied by Mike Harmon, a first-term Republican from Junction City. Boyle and Washington counties comprise the 54th District.

Because Sparrow and Harmon are the only candidates who have filed for the 54th District seat, there will be no primary in that race. They will square off in the November general election.

Sparrow currently is assistant to the dean of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.

The 54th District race is one of several contests of local interest in the state House and Senate, U.S. House and U.S. Senate and judiciary. A list of candidates in those races, as compiled by the secretary of state's office in Frankfort:


State House, 24th District (Casey): Republican - Jimmy Higdon, Lebanon.

State Senate, 15th District (Casey): Republicans - Vernie McGaha, Russell Springs; David Carr, Somerset.
