Lindsey Burke has deep roots in Lexington. For decades, Lindsey has been an advocate and ally for progressive causes. When Lindsey Burke encounters a problem, she solves it.
Deep roots make Lindsey strong enough to weather any storm. Lindsey's decades of experiences and relationships connect her deeply to the 75th District. She is a product of Fayette County Public Schools, and credits them with her successes. She attended UK briefly, but transferred away mid-year to another public university. Lindsey will always stand up for public education in Frankfort.
Lindsey became active in community service as a child through school, church, and Girl Scouting. As a young adult, she did issue organizing for KFTC and then an AmeriCorps Year of Service focused on Preventing Homelessness at Lexington Rescue Mission. She did another AmeriCorps service program in law school. Lindsey gives of herself professionally and personally, because she believes in uplifting others--she will do the same in Frankfort.
Like her grandmother, who in the 1960s started a furniture store to support her growing family, Lindsey is an entrepreneurial problem solver. While Lindsey was a social worker in Lexington in the mid-aughts, she saw how hard it was for her clients to get legal assistance. She came up with a plan to increase access to justice for the poor, went to law school, became an attorney, and created a successful nonprofit law office. Lindsey will put her entrepreneurial problem-solving to work for us in Frankfort.
