CHRISTIAN COUNTY = HOME
Lynn Pryor was raised on a farm in the small community of LaFayette in south Christian County. Her parents, Rex and Ann Pryor, still live in LaFayette, as do many of her family members. Lynn attended South Christian Elementary, and was active in 4-H, Kentucky Farm Bureau Youth programs, and other local activities. She graduated with honors from Christian County High School in 1988 and worked several jobs during school.
Following high school, Lynn attended the University of Kentucky where she obtained her bachelor's degree in Merchandising and graduated with honors in 1992. After working in the retail business for several years, Lynn decided to pursue her dream of becoming an attorney and attended the University of Kentucky's College of Law. In 1998, Lynn obtained her Juris Doctorate degree and was licensed to practice law in 1999.
Following her graduation, Lynn worked as Co-Corporate Counsel and General Manager for Southeastern Title Company. In 2000, she moved back to Christian County and became an Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney. It was then that Lynn discovered her passion for prosecution. In addition, from 2003 - 2006, Lynn served as the Regional Attorney for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, representing all nine counties of the Pennyrile region, focusing on making children in foster care available for adoption.
In 2006, Lynn decided to launch a campaign to become Christian County's first female Commonwealth's Attorney. In the May primary election, Lynn was elected to replace the incumbent Rick Boling, and she took office in January 2007. Lynn has served two terms as the Commonwealth's Attorney, and is currently seeking re-election for a third term.
Lynn has two daughters, Kendal and Karlee, and all three have participated in a number of community organizations and events. They became members of First United Methodist Church when LaFayette United Methodist Church closed its doors. Karlee attends Hopkinsville High School, and Kendal is a student at the University of Kentucky.
As a native of Christian County - with family from one end of the county to the other - Lynn has a vested interest in ensuring the safety of all of her fellow citizens. She has been active in the community, supportive of local businesses, and acts as a mentor to many of the young people in the area.
Lynn is dedicated to her faith, her family and her community. She promises to maintain the trust, experience and transparency that her team has brought to the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney. A true hometown girl, Lynn Pryor humbly asks for the support of all of the voters in Christian County.
