Short Biography (Dates with Highlights)

Return to Louisville

 After 43 years in Cincinnati, OH, I moved back to Louisville, KY in 2013, to live near my son and grandchildren. My son teaches finance on the college level, and his wife is a doctor whose family lives in Louisville, KY, also.

My Adopted Home

I moved to Cincinnati in 1970 with my new bride, to work for Hartford Insurance Company, Main Street, Downtown Cincinnati, OH, as a Multi-line Claim Representative. She also worked downtown, for the IRS. She was a career federal civil servant, now retired.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky on January 26, 1942. My dad was a maintenance supervisor in the cooperage industry (wooden barrels) with a talent for machine design. His designs have been the standard for cooperage machines throughout the world for the last half of the twentieth century and beyond. He was an 8th grade genius who earned a spot as the plant engineer in his cooperage plant.


We were a middle class family of five with my mom at home as a homemaker my whole life. She was always active in church and community activities.

I value that family life style with a parent at home through the school years. The ability to have one job or career sustain the family is a worthy social goal.

My library card was always a dear friend and I had friendships with many famous authors and historians. My intellectual curiosity took me into many areas of personal study. I was an average student by school standards but considered very bright by my teachers and my "straight A" friends who I helped with homework while neglecting my own studies. I listened intently in classes and "aced" all the tests. I was the first person in my family to earn a college degree.

I played sandlot sports with numerous friends on a daily basis throughout my life into college, where I took up tennis. Tennis is a lifelong passion.


Divorced Dad

My son was born in Good Samaritan Hoppital, Cincinnati, OH, in the early 1970s. Cincinnati was our hometown. Louisville, KY, is our hometown now.

After six years in claims, I changed to drafting where I found a livelihood made easy by my visual and mechanical aptitudes. My divorce occurred about the same time, in 1975.

I stayed in contract work for twenty years so I could be a father to my son. In contract work, I had the option to move if my ex-wife elected to move my son away from Cincinnati.

I have never re-married despite several close and loving heterosexual relationships of considerable duration. (Top of Page)


An Activist is Born

I worked for five years in the 1980s for joint custody so children could have the opportunity to have two loving parents in their lives after a divorce of their parents. I edited a joint custody information packet which was instrumental in getting hearings on joint custody (shared parenting) in the Ohio legislature. A year of work produced the first ever shared-parenting divorce legislation in Ohio. I discovered that political activism can get results that improve the lives of our citizens. Due to the good results from that experience, I have been an advocate of political activism to this day.

(Political PhilosophyOCCUPY

Every time I meet a young person who came from a divorced family, and who had the love of both of their parents in a shared parenting custody arrangement, I am proud of my efforts to obtain the enabling legislation.

Because of my experiences with divorce law, I learned to openly question the "justice" in our justice system.

Since the 1980s, I have stayed involved as a moderate political activist. I do not accept anything in society on face value. I constantly ask questions to consider why we have the society we have and if there is some way to improve the lives of our citizens. (Top of Page)

I will work to eliminate corruption from our political system for the rest of my life. Until the fall of 1999, I had never seen myself as a political candidate. I still do not see myself as a politician. I am not an ideal candidate in my own mind, but if not me, who? If not now, when? I know I will represent us.

I will be a citizen legislator when elected. I will serve no more than two terms in office four years. I will work to elect another citizen legislator, another nonpartisan independent or minor party candidate to serve in the U.S. Congress to take my place. Non-career politicians are more likely to work for clean government and for us. I will return to Louisville, KY, to live.

I have a few other pamphlets and books in mind to write over the balance of my lifetime to work for liberty and justice for all in a more democratic republic.

I Pledge to be Self Term-Limited to Two Terms in Office: Four Years

RICH STEVENSON, dist03ky@cs2pr.us


To preserve freedom and our democratic republic we must not re-elect bipartisan career incumbents to public office, as often as possible, and replace them with as many newly elected private citizens as possible.


Elect "Rich." You win. We all win. Rich is on your ballot for KY District Three Representative to the U.S. Congress on November 03, 2020. You must be proactive in this election campaign to have your voice heard in the U.S. Congress.

We all win if you apply term limits in the voting booth to all Incumbent public office holders. Establishment politicians do harm to our dreams of freedom and a democratic republic. As the years pass, incumbent politicians serve only their political party and other special interests that support their personal political ambitions.
