Frankfort, Ky. – Governor Matt Bevin today announced the appointment of David A. Dickerson of Glasgow as Secretary of the Public Protection Cabinet. Dickerson served as Barren County Judge Executive from 1994-1999.
“David has the character and commitment I am looking for as I continue to fill key positions in this administration,” said Gov. Bevin. “He is a proven business leader and a trusted friend. He will be a great leader in Public Protection.”
“I am very excited and honored to serve Kentucky as a part of this administration,” Dickerson said.
In 1971, just out of Glasgow High School, Dickerson began working in his family business, where he began as a laborer in the timber cutting crew and learned the business from the ground up.
Dickerson most recently served as Corporate Officer for Dickerson Lumber Company – his family business – where he co-managed day-to-day operations.
Dickerson is a graduate of Western Kentucky University. He has two children and two grandchildren.
