Steve Gaines, editor of the Bowling Green Daily News for the last five years, is now the District 4 elected KPA/KPS Board representative. He had served the first three months of 2019 as a State At-Large Board member but when the District 4 Board member, Melissa Mudd, left the business, KPA had to conduct a Special Election. Steve will fill that spot for the remainder of 2019 and then an election for a full three-year term will be held in late Fall.
Steve has been with the Daily News since 2001 as general assignment reporter, court/police beat reporter and editorial page editor. He continues writing a number of editorials each year as editor.
Steve attended the University of Alabama but left school one course shy of his degree. He is completing work on that course and will receive his BA from Alabama this fall.
District 4 includes Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson and Warren counties.
