About Glen

Glen Casada graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1982 with a B.S. in Agriculture.  He has been married to Jill Sholar Casada for 25 years and is the proud father of four children.  Glen and his family attend Brentwood Baptist Church. They reside in the Tollgate community of Thompson Station.  Glen has worked as an animal pharmaceutical salesman for the past 30 years and is currently employed by Merck.

In 2007 and again in 2012, Rep. Casada was honored to be elected Chairman of the House Republican Caucus. He also serves on four committees: Calendar and Rules, Government Operations, Insurance and Banking, and Consumer and Human Resources.

In Glen’s Own Words:

“I have always looked at elected office as a way to serve my community.  In 1994, I was elected to the County Commission in Williamson County. In 2001, with the income tax debate in full swing, I decided it was time for me to step up and serve Williamson County in the State Legislature.”

“One of my most memorable moments was the night of the income tax vote. I was there when the ‘vote’ was held open on the House floor for over an hour. I was proud to vote against the income tax and the sales tax increase. I think a better option would have been to simply cut spending.”

“Other key features of my legislative principles include supporting the pro-life movement in every possible way and striving to be responsive to the concerns and requests of my constituents.  Since securing Republican majorities in both chambers of the legislature, I have been proud to be a part of the groundswell of conservative-minded policies adopted by our state.”
