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? 

A better funded public education system KY. An agenda that puts funding directly into classrooms. In addition to that a fully funded pension system that is paying back money used for other projects. As a junior member I will look at several committees but rationally I’ll have to see where I can do the most with limited seniority.
