Employee photo Meet Judy Fritz. This LRC staff member has deep Irish roots in her family that will grow even deeper after her planned 2017 retirement. That’s when she plans to spend a couple months a year on the Emerald Isle. For now, the Fleming County native, attorney and 25-year LRC employee continues to dedicate herself to her work as the Committee Staff Administrator of both the State Government Committee and Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee. Her other service with the agency includes several years with the Banking and Insurance Committee and stints with both the Program Review and Investigations Committee and the Licensing and Occupations Committee. Each job has held its challenges but, in her current job, Fritz said redistricting is “definitely the most challenging work we do… It is our job to do the work of the members, but to also remind them of constitutional prohibition, of standards established by state and federal case law and to track all communication with (specific LRC staff), especially the GIS (Geographic Information Systems) team.” After work, Fritz unwinds by returning to the farm where she lives with her husband of 36 years, Scott Thompson. It is there where Fritz says she enjoys “privacy and the quiet.” She builds traditional Irish stone walls, takes walks in the woods and gardens. She also spends time with her children and grandchildren—she and Thompson have three sons and three grandchildren who call her “Domne” (“That is what my father and his cousins called their Irish grandmother,” she says.)
