About Me

I believe government (the people) should help those who cannot help themselves. I believe most people want to help themselves, but as a compassionate society, we must be sensitive to the needs of others.

Hello, my name is Terry Mills. I am a candidate for State Representative for the 24th District which includes the counties of Green, Larue, and Marion counties.

I was born the second of twelve children. I grew up with an appreciation of small things. Just having our needs was a struggle, and only later in life did I learn there is opportunity for everyone to succeed with hard work, perseverance, and dedication to faith and family. I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1973 with a degree in Business Administration. I am 67 and have been married to Patty (Lee) Mills for 48 years. I have 3 children and 7 grandchildren. I retired from a 35 year career working for Social Security serving Marion, Green, and 6 surrounding counties. I began as a Service Representative and retired as Acting District Manager of the Campbellsville District in 2007. During that career, I interacted and dealt with tens of thousands  of citizens of every walk of life.

I believe in traditional family values. I believe that work is the key to individual success and to improving the quality of life for communities and individuals. I respect and admire the small business owners and entrepreneurs who give so much of themselves to operate a successful business.. I have a special respect for common people who go to work every day to provide for their families – I learned at a young age that the key to leading a good life is work. I believe strongly that “a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay” is a creed workers and business owners alike should follow.
