Why I am Running
As “Happy Chandler” once said “I never met a Kentuckian who wasn’t either thinking about going home or actually going home”. I fear that quote was true more in years past than currently. As a proud Kentuckian I am optimistic about our future, but at the same time I am concerned that we are still falling behind our neighboring states in many key measurements. While Kentucky has made great strides in technology, education, health, financial education, and entrepreneurism over the years, I believe we have so much farther to go.
I have watched Kentucky fall short of its potential for too long.
We have the people and the resources to accomplish so much more as a Commonwealth. While I will be talking about taxes and regulations, among many other policies that need to be addressed in order to for Kentucky to “keep up”, it is more than just concrete actions such as these that make a Commonwealth great. For all Kentuckians, especially our youth, there needs to be an innovative culture imbedded in our society and a feeling that you can be successful in Frankfort, or anywhere else in the Commonwealth. As an educator and motivational speaker I want to use this office to encourage and promote a “can do attitude” and work to help Kentuckians develop a larger vision of their potential.
