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? 

There is too much uncertainty in our lives today. Institutions, such as schools, which should be the foundation of our society, are under attack. Families worry about providing basic necessities, such as food, shelter, and health care. This is wrong. Workers should not have to be afraid of losing their jobs.            My goal is to help provide the security we need for families, farms and businesses to prosper. I am a public school teacher; I would like to serve on the Education Committee.            I am a Veteran; I would like to serve on the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. I am a CASA Volunteer; I would like to serve on the Health and Welfare Committee.
