Cathy Hudson Flaig was born and raised in Boone County, where she attended Boone County High School. She married her high school sweetheart, Bob Flaig, and they began their married life in Pensacola, Florida, where Bob was serving in the US Navy. Upon returning to Northern Kentucky, Bob and Cathy started their family. They are the proud parents of two grown sons, and have 4 grandchildren.
Bob and Cathy began Flaig Welding in Hebron, where they have worked on major construction projects including work on the Combs-Hehl Bridge, Islands Restaurant, and repairs to the Brentspence Bridge.
In the 1980s, Cathy became active in community activities, in opposition to increased local taxes and big government. In 1998, after working on a number of political campaigns, Cathy was elected as the first republican woman to hold office in Boone County.
As county commissioner, Cathy has opposed all tax increases and helped lead the fight against a county parks tax, for which there was no plan, rather just a call for new money. Cathy left the court in 2010 and, after four years in private life, she returned to elected office in 2015, renewing her commitment to smaller government, lower taxes, and the free enterprise system.
