Press release from Stacy Crosslin
Stacy Crosslin, a longtime resident and educator in Meade County, filed paperwork on Jan. 8 to run in the Democratic Primary for the 27th House District, which includes Meade and Hardin counties. When asked about her first-time filing experience in Frankfort, Crosslin stated, “Having my two oldest children, who are registered voters in Meade County, serve as my witnesses was very meaningful to me. My husband and I have always instilled in our children the importance of being active and informed voters. It was wonderful to have them both by my side as I began this new endeavor.”
Stacy and her husband, Mark, moved to Meade County in 1993 and began working for Meade County Schools. They both fell in love with the area and the people of Meade County and decided to plant roots here and begin a family. They have three children, two who graduated from Meade County High School and attend Murray State University, Jared and Sydney. Their youngest child, Isaac, is a high school sophomore. Stacy teaches mathematics at the high school while Mark teaches English. Stacy has worked for Meade County Schools for a total of twenty-seven years and has been a mathematics teacher for fourteen of those twenty-seven years.
Crosslin earned her bachelor's degree from Western Kentucky University, majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Business Administration. She also received her Masters and Rank I in School Counseling K-12 from Western Kentucky University. She is a certified counselor and was the school guidance counselor at Flaherty Elementary School for thirteen years.
Crosslin has held many leadership positions, both professionally and personally. Currently she serves as the local President of the Meade County Education Association and is a co-founder of the Meade County Schools United educator group. Over the years, she’s coached academic team, coached cheerleading, sponsored Kentucky Youth Assembly delegations, led a Cub Scout den, and volunteered for a wide variety of non-profit organizations. Stacy estimates that she has worked with well over 4,000 Meade County students and their families.
When asked why she thinks she would be an effective legislator Crosslin replied, “As an educator, I’ve worked with a wide variety of people and gained invaluable skills. I collaborate well with others, I’m a skilled mediator, I have no problem standing up for what I believe in, and I’m a great listener. If elected to represent District 27, I would use my years of experience in the public sector to honestly and diligently advocate for the needs of our community, which I have witnessed first hand from working in the school system for so many years.”
While fully funding public education is one of her top priorities, Stacy Crosslin is certainly not a single-issue candidate. Other issues which she is passionate about include providing taxpayers with affordable healthcare options in which insurers cannot discriminate against pre-existing conditions, protecting and strengthening the pension systems for all state employees, attracting new industries to our area which can provide good-paying jobs for our citizens, and advocating for fair tax reform.
