Question 1:

What’s your vision for Kentucky? How will the lives of Kentuckians be improved as a result of your time in office?
 

My vision for Kentucky is to improve the quality of life for all of us. Kentucky has a high poverty level, we have some of the poorest counties in the nation It takes investment in healthcare and education, tackling child abuse and poverty, addressing poverty by increasing our minimum wage to a living wage, and to act on environmental issues such as access to clean water, and investment in renewable energy.

Question 1:

What’s your vision for Kentucky? How will the lives of Kentuckians be improved as a result of your time in office?
 

Many of our problems are the result of long neglect and can’t be resolved overnight. But I hope Kentucky can return to a time when civility and consideration of the common good are the first consideration in every political discussion. An educated population, I believe, is the single best hope for all our children. So, I hope for a public education system that meets more than the bare minimums; one that inspires our children to be all that they can be, to go farther, and strive to achieve bigger and better. Jobs will come to an educated population, I believe. I hope we can offer to all our citizens a basic level of healthcare, and ask of them in return that they safeguard their health. We will all benefit if we take better care of our citizens, and they take better care of themselves. By chasing so many divisive issues that are not “our problem” we have forgotten those basic issues which are fundamental to our government. I hope my experience as a problem solver will add one more voice of reason and allow us to address our common problems.
