Question 1:

What’s your vision for Kentucky? How will the lives of Kentuckians be improved as a result of your time in office? What legislative committees will you request to serve on once elected? 

All my life, I’ve lived in the 45th District of Kentucky, except when I was serving my country as a civil engineer officer in the U.S. Navy. My parents worked two jobs each to support our family. Through my experiences, I look forward to solving the tough problems that face our state so Kentucky’s future is bright and equitable for the next generation.            My vision for Kentucky is rooted in ensuring that we provide quality education for every child, our economy works for everyone, and that we take care of our earth and natural lands. If elected, my responsibility is to build a Kentucky, alongside you, that is built upon the foundations of security and opportunity.            For committees, I believe my skills would best serve the Commonwealth on Appropriations and Revenue; Economic and Workforce Development; Education; Natural Resources and Energy; Small Business and Information Technology; and Transportation.
