The Kentucky House of Representatives is the lower house of the Kentucky General Assembly. Composed of 100 Representatives, members are elected from single-member districts throughout the Commonwealth. Not more than two counties can be joined to form a House district, except when necessary to preserve the principle of equal representation.
A member of Kentucky's House of Representatives must be:
At least 24 years old,
A citizen of Kentucky, and
Must have lived in the state for at least 2 years & in the
district for 1 year prior to election.
Representatives are elected for two-year (2) terms, with no term limits.
The entire House is elected every 2 years.
House District 57 includes the western portion of Franklin County, except for portions adjacent to Woodford County, as noted on the map to the right. HD 57 is bordered on the north by Henry County & Owen County; to the west by Shelby County, & to the south by Anderson & Woodford Counties.

The incumbent representative for House District 57, Rep. Derrick Graham (D) ran against a challenger, Dr. Gary Stratton (R). Together Frankfort sent questionnaires to both candidates. Rep. Graham indicated he has a policy of some years that he does not respond to questionnaires, but offered instead to speak to the organization. Because Together Frankfort did not conduct candidate forums for the 2022 General Election, we did not respond to his request.
Candidate Gary Stratton (R) completed the questionnaire, and his ideas and recommendations can be found through this link. Together Frankfort sincerely thanks candidate Dr. Stratton for his taking the time to share his ideas -- we encourage all Franklin County voters to review his responses.
In the 2022 November General Election, Franklin County voters in District 57 voted to return Rep. Derrick Graham (D) to the Kentucky House of Representative. Together Frankfort encourages all citizens to stay in touch with Rep. Graham and share your ideas and recommendations as the 2023 General Assembly gets underway. His contact information can be found below.
