1.    Economic Development and Job Creation.  The 56th District is in need of economic development and job creation throughout the entire District.  Our local businesses are suffering because our residents are leaving the district for work, and we don’t have jobs to keep our children in the community if they want to stay. Creating a diverse mix of jobs that pay a better than average wage will benefit our residents and provide an increase in much-needed local customers for our existing businesses. Diversification and broadening the base of our local economy will make us less vulnerable to economic swings and it will allow us to grow our tax base rather than growing our tax rates.  

2.    Listen to YOU.  Career politicians at all levels of government have always done a great job of telling me what issues are affecting me and what will make my life better. The problem is they are usually wrong. They don’t understand the problems being discussed at our kitchen tables and don’t seem to care. I want to know what is affecting YOU.

3.    Bring some “common sense” to State Government.   Just like at home, government cannot continue to borrow money to pay its bills. Cutting waste and paying our debts is being fiscally responsible to the tax payers of Kentucky.  We simply cannot maintain the out-of-control mismanagement of our state finances and expect our children to have a future. Frankfort must live within its means.

Lunch on the back porch with the Lieutenant Governor. What a fabulous idea the Franklin County Republican Women had and I want to thank them for recognizing me and allowing me to say a few words. What an honor! Thank you so much for all you do. #fister56 ... See MoreSee Less

I want to thank the Fayette Co. Republican Party for hosting another outstanding Summer Picnic. What a line up of speakers they had! I am truly humbled to share a microphone with Congressman Andy Barr, Senator Alice Forgy Kerr, Representative Stan Lee, and so many other outstanding leaders. This was the perfect end to a perfect day. Thank you all for all your help and support. #fister56 ... See MoreSee Less

I stopped by Taylor Manor to help with their Carnival Saturday afternoon. These sort of events are very important to their residents. I don’t have any family there, but I still think it is important to go visit and let these people know they are still a part of our society.

Taylor Manor is also participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Please join their team and support them on August 25th. #fister56
