Commission on Human Rights
Governor names Stinson Human Rights Commission Chair
Governor Steven Beshear last week appointed George W. Stinson of Louisville chair of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights. Gov. Beshear appointed Stinson as a commissioner in early October along with three other new members.
The new chair represents the Fourth Supreme Court District. He is a real estate developer of SLS Management LLC in Louisville.
“We look forward to serving under Chair Stinson’s leadership,” said John J. Johnson, commission executive director.
Stinson follows Chair Henry Curtis of Louisville. Curtis will continue to serve as a commissioner on the board representing the Fifth Supreme Court District. The long-time commissioner served as chair for just over a year and was appointed by then Gov. Ernie Fletcher.
“Chair Curtis’ term as chair has been both productive and a delight,” Johnson said. “We are glad that he will remain on the commission board,” he said.
The Kentucky Human Rights Commission is the state government agency that enforces the Kentucky Civil Rights Act and policies of federal civil rights laws.
