Frankfort, KY – Friday, January 10, 2020: Democrat Daniel Grossberg filed today for State Legislature in the 30th District and will face 24-term incumbent Tom Burch in the May Primary.

Grossberg also discussed other issues he plans on addressing in the campaign, “Education is the cornerstone of economic success, and we have to guarantee that we provide a world-class education to all Kentucky children, no matter where they live.” He added, “That means better funding public schools and paying teachers more competitively to recruit and retain the best teachers.”
He has been very active in local and state Democratic politics. Grossberg has been involved in several campaigns, currently serves as president of the Metro Democratic Club, and is a former member of the Kentucky Democratic State Central Committee.

“I look forward to getting to know the voters better and working together to make the 30th a great place to live, work, and raise children.” He concluded by saying.
Grossberg, 41, and his wife Erica, who is a Jefferson County school teacher, and former Mrs. Louisville, live on Roselawn Blvd in Louisville with their golden retriever rescue Bennie.
