Employee photo Meet Brandon White. A Frankfort native, he started at LRC in 2000 as a courier delivering documents when he wasn’t in class at Kentucky State University. Brandon is now a Senior Legislative Analyst for the Transportation Committee with a master’s in public administration. Nearly two decades later, Brandon still recalls the energy he drew from working his first session. It felt like chaos to the legislative novice, but Brandon said he instinctively knew he wanted to “be in the middle of it all.” The 38-year-old said he still revels in the challenge of figuring out what a legislator wants to accomplish and writing a bill that achieves the legislator’s goal. Brandon’s passion for drafting sound transportation legislation is matched by his passion for barbecue. He built a smoker out of a 55-gallon drum in his backyard so that he could make his own sliced pork sandwiches after his favorite local barbecue joint closed. In a matter-of-fact way, Brandon describes how he almost missed out on it all. He was born with a congenital heart condition, known as blue-baby syndrome, which required open-heart surgery at 20 months in Louisville to correct. Brandon said the condition has received national attention as of late after comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s son was diagnosed with it.
