Phillip Pratt has filed paperwork with the Secretary of State’s office to run in the Republican Primary in the 62nd House District for the seat vacated by newly elected Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles. While a Special Election will take place prior to the primary, Pratt intends to seek the Republican Party nomination for that ballot as well.

“I want to bring my real world experience as a small business owner to Frankfort. I know firsthand how government overreach and excessive regulation impact businesses and people in the community. I hope to build on Ryan Quarles’ legacy as a leader and voice for the people of Scott, Fayette, and Owen counties.”

Phillip Pratt is a lifelong Scott County resident, where he built a successful small business, Pratt’s Lawn and Landscape, from the ground up. Phillip and his wife of 35 years, Martha Jane, have three adult children and two grandchildren. Pratt is a 1980 graduate of the University Of Kentucky College Of Agriculture with a degree in Agriculture Economics.

“It’s time to give back to this community that has been so good to my family and me over the years and represent the people’s interests in Frankfort. I am in this race to win this seat and give the government back to the citizens of the Commonwealth.”
