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? 

I want to see KY wrestled away from the out-of-state industries that have plagued the state since the 19th century. What started as timber, coal, and gas has moved to private prisons and school testing. Underpaid labor and congressional abuses also need to be addressed. I want to see KY's education and employment opportunities be equal to anywhere in the nation. I want high-speed internet access and healthcare available for every resident. Finally, I want to see continuous improvement in racial equality that will lead to full equality for everyone. My preferred House committees would be Education, Labor and Industry, Natural Resources and Environment, Health and Welfare, or Transportation. The joint committees I prefer are those of Education and Energy.
