Fister running for representative in 56th district
Dan Fister, a Woodford County farmer and property manager, is running for the Kentucky House of Representatives in the 56th District. Fister is a pro-God, pro-life candidate that believes very strongly in the U.S Constitution, including the Second Amendment.
A graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, Fister has served in the public sector, worked as a senior accountant, and retired after 34 years as a general contractor. Fister is a member of St. Leo’s Church where he married his high school sweetheart, Vickie Kain Fister, in 1978 and has a long history of public service through his church and non-profit organizations. He is currently serving his third term as the Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus in Versailles. Fister has been recognized many times for his conservation efforts including his appointment to the Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund Board in 2001 by Governor Patton and being named Conservationist of the Year in 2005 by KWFF.
When asked why he is running, Fister said, “Our children deserve a better world to grow up in. It’s time to do something about our drug problem, fund our pensions, create jobs, and stop ignoring our problems. I ask for your vote on Nov. 6.”
