Jobs, Taxes, and Education
I am deeply concerned about the economic issues facing us here in Western Kentucky. We need industries that pay good hourly wages for a full days work. Keeping our children in our area after finishing their educational goals, providing high quality education in our public schools and universities by fully funding them, growing our small businesses, getting more economic development opportunities, and improving our roads and bridges are some of my hopes for the future. I will not be passing legislation that further destroys the desire to continue the American way of life; hurts public school teachers, first responders, and public servants; lowers wages and employment benefits; and increases taxes on the working and middle-class while giving tax breaks to the wealthy. I absolutely will not spend my time trying to pass legislation allowing the Kentucky legislature to fix by law what your child, your spouse, your parents, your brothers and sisters and our fellow human beings are worth in the event of their injury or death by wrongful and negligent acts of others such as that my opponent, Mr. Danny Carroll, tried to do by amending the Kentucky Constitution. He takes pride in saying he is a conservative. Yet, he has started the ball rolling by allowing the State Legislature to put a price on human lives. Madness. Thanks, but no thanks, Mr. Carroll. The good people in our Western Kentucky counties do not need further losses by such legislation and someone not looking out for our interests and destroying our identity. We will not become a forgotten and barren land. Do not elect someone who thinks like Mr. Carroll. We have had enough of his idea of what he is up there for.
