via Press Release

Ritter looks to carry on the legacy of Rep. Lamin Swann.

Frankfort, KY, January 5, 2024 – Lexington native Sarah Ritter filed for office today to challenge Rep. Adrielle Camuel in the Democratic Party for State Representative in Kentucky 93rd District representing southwestern Fayette County.

“Lamin Swann was a great inspiration to me. His death last year was a great loss for the Commonwealth and to all who loved him,” Ritter said. “I feel that I can best provide the strong competent leadership that Rep. Swann would have wanted in Frankfort.”

Ritter currently works in tourism and economic development for VisitLEX. Previously, she worked in the Beshear Administration in the Governor’s Office of Legislative Affairs and the Governor’s Office of Boards and Commissions.

“One of the things you learn pretty quickly in Frankfort is that the most effective legislators are the ones who understand the process and know the people. I’ve seen firsthand how things work and know I can be effective on day one,” Ritter said of her time in state government.

She has also been active in Democratic Politics, working on several campaigns and serving in leadership with the Fayette County and Kentucky Young Democrats (YDs). She currently serves as the Vice President for Public Relations for the Fayette County YDs.

“I have wanted to run for office for as long as I can remember, and the election of Representative Rachel Roarx, who is my age, made me realize that you are never too young to contribute.”

As a State Representative, Ritter plans to focus on issues that affect everyday Kentuckians, especially young people. Healthcare, affordable housing, and fostering economic development for the next generations of Kentuckians.

Ritter is very close with her parents, Kathy and David of Lexington, her two brothers, and their families. She graduated from Henry Clay High School and the University of Kentucky.
