Service and leadership have always been a part of Dickie Carter. He wants to continue that by being elected to another term on Logan Fiscal Court as the First District magistrate.

The native Logan Countian has been elected to that seat four times, dating back to 1992. He served five years following that first election, as Kentucky was switching years for local elections. After an unsuccessful run for county judge-executive, he sat out four years and then was reelected to the court again. In 2009, he was elected to fill the final two years of the unexpired term of the late Starling Murphy. He now is in his 15th year on the court after having been elected once again in 2014.

Additionally, Carter owned and operated his own service business, Kleen Rite, for 40 years until 2012.

He has served in unpaid roles as a member of Logan County Search & Rescue, Red Cross Disaster Services, and the Agape Prison Ministry. His sister, Janice Humble, and his brother-in-law, Mike Humble, head Agape Ministries. He is a state certified volunteer chaplain.

Dickie Carter has always been a leader.  As a senior at Russellville High School in 1963, he was voted president of the student council, captain of the football team, Mr. RHS and Best All Around.

As the elected representative of the First District, he has been a leader of the effort to provide funding for more opportunities for young people to have worthwhile, fun activities without using alcohol or drugs. He was the most vocal member of fiscal court in advocating a war on drugs in Logan County.

In addition to his service arenas, Dickie Cater has many other areas in which to relate to the public. He was a factory worker for seven years, and has farmed for 40 years.

An alumnus of Western Kentucky University, he has been a member of the Red River Meeting House Association, Logan County Cattleman’s Association, NRA, Concerned Citizens, Past Finders and the United Methodist Temple..

This current term of fiscal court has marked the death of his mother, Laura Lee Carter Stuart. Clem Dickerson Carter is also the son of the late Clem Carter. He honors his dad in every election by having his name on the ballot as Clem “Dickie” Carter.

He is being opposed in tomorrow’s Republican primary election by William “Russ”s Sharp and Timothy Rainwaters.
