During that period, he also served as a judge for Ohio County, a national committeeman for the Kentucky Young Republicans, a chairman for the Ohio County Republicans, the general manager for Embry Newspapers, Incorporated, and as organization chairman for the Hopkins Governor Campaign. In 1996, he took on the position of a general manager at Hughes & Coleman PLC, serving in that role until 2000, when he became a Kentucky state representative for the 17th district. Since 2015, Mr. Embry has held the title of state senator in Kentucky.
Outside of his immediate professional responsibilities, Mr. Embry is active in several professional organizations, such as the Kentucky Republican Judge-Executive’s Association, Green River Area Development District, the Ohio County Historical Society, and the Honorary Order of Kentucky Colonels.
