Question 1:

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

I believe that everyone should be a small business owner, or the least have the small business mindset. We will increase small business ownerships throughout our community via intentionally developing, invest and track the progress of these initiatives.

Small businesses are the bloodline of our community, and if we foster these well, we can solve multiple social challenges such as homeless, employments, and many others.

This country, state, city, community and more importantly these community people has the capability to develop a country kid from 3rd world country like me into who I am today, and I can testify and advocate that we can literally do anything, and help any community people to move to next level if we really want to. I have the passion, experience, and capabilities to do it now - but on a small scale. Together, we can really do a lot more.

The KY Senate Chamber and so the KY House Chamber needs a good mix of young blood, hungry to contribute and highly appreciate this community, city, state, and country. I owe this to our community, and I am paying forward.

My vision for Kentucky is simple: it’s one where economic opportunity, healthcare, safety, and education are available at the highest level regardless of race, gender, social class, or zip code. I know I speak for many in my part of Louisville when I say it’s time the South End gets its due.

The interesting thing about our race in the South End is that while District 37 will elect a Democrat, Republicans hold a supermajority in both Kentucky’s House and Senate. It will take a candid, forthcoming, honest, relatable individual to work with the controlling Republican members in any meaningful way.

And that individual is me. I’m not an attorney, I have no ties to the political establishment, and as an engineer I love nothing more than working with a diverse team to solve complex problems. A new voice, I am the candidate to put aside partisan politics, make the tough decisions, and fight for the South End’s fair share.
