About John Hendricks

John Hendricks for State RepresentativeI was born and raised in rural Clark County. My parents, John C. and Mary Beth Flynn Hendricks, taught me the values of hard work, effective leadership and real service at an early age. Growing up and working on our family farm, those values became an important part of who I am today.

After graduating from George Rogers Clark High School, I attended Georgetown College. I attended law school at the University of Kentucky, where I graduated Cum Laude. During the summers, I worked on my family farm and grew vegetables to sell out of the bed of my pick‑up truck. My family and I grew that small operation into what is today Beech Springs Farm Market. Working in a small business has caused me to experience the struggles facing Clark and Madison county families. I have always been involved in the community and want to see growth throughout Clark and Madison Counties.

I have served as an Assistant Clark County Attorney since October 2011, and I am a partner at the law firm of Grant, Rose and Pumphrey. I also serve as a member of the Juvenile Substance Abuse Program (JSAP) and the Family Accountability, Intervention and Response (FAIR) team. I also volunteer on many other local boards and committees throughout the 73rd District.

I believe that we must work together to address the issues that Clark and Madison County face. The people of Clark and Madison counties deserve effective leadership in Frankfort. The time for legislative hijinks and “cyber assassins” has passed. It is time for A Fresh Start.
