Representatives Jonathan Dixon and Rachel Roberts Announce They Will Not Seek Re-Election

Two more state House of Representatives members have announced 2024 as their last session in the General Assembly.

On Wednesday, Rep. Jonathan Dixon, R-Corydon, announced he would not seek a third term in office.

“I am incredibly grateful to the people of Henderson County for entrusting me with the privilege of representing them in Frankfort, and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish over the past three years – lowering the income tax, passing the most responsible budget in modern history, and enacting legislation that has made this a better place to live and work,” Dixon said. “This decision was a difficult one, but ultimately, the time has come to change my direction.”

Dixon is the co-chair of the Annexation Task Force and a 2023 ‘Kentucky Friend of Cities’ recipient.

At the same time, House Democratic Caucus Whip Rachel Roberts, of Newport, announced she, too, would not seek re-election. Roberts was first elected in a special election in May of 2020.

“Serving those who live and work in this district has been an unparalleled honor, and I will forever be grateful for the faith others have placed in me.  With their support, I have done all I can to create positive and lasting change for Northern Kentucky and the entire commonwealth,” Roberts said in a statement.

Both lawmakers will serve the remainder of their term, which ends Dec. 31, 2024.
