Bio

Born in Warren County, Michael Lee Meredith grew up on a small, beef cattle farm in Edmonson County. Michael graduated from Edmonson County High School and Western Kentucky with a bachelor's degree in Business Management. By age 16, Michael was working part time at Bank of Edmonson County. Today, he continues to work at Bank of Edmonson County as a loan officer.

In 2008, Michael was elected and served a two-year term on the Brownsville City Council. These two years would prove to be a launching pad for Michael into local government issues and public service. In 2010, Michael was elected to the Kentucky General Assembly to represent the 19th District. He has continued to represent the 19th District which now includes Edmonson County and a portion of Warren County.

Michael and his wife, Jamie, live on Jamie's family farm in Oakland with their two daughters, Emorie and Darby. Living on a fifth-generation row crop farm, they see first-hand that farming isn't just an occupation; it is a way of life. They hope to instill a love for the land and an appreciation for our farming community in their two young daughters. Michael and Jamie can both be found on the family farm from time to time helping during harvest. And, it isn't uncommon to see Emorie and Darby riding around the farm in a piece of John Deere equipment or visiting the neighboring Holsteins.

Michael remains active in the community as a member of the Edmonson County Lions Club, Edmonson County Community Education Advisory Committee and Edmonson County Leadership Alumni. He has also served as a member of the Edmonson County Tourism Commission, the Edmonson County High School Youth Service Center Advisory Board, and the LifeSkills Inc. Board of Directors.
