I am immensely proud to announce that my campaign has been endorsed by the Kentucky Educator’s Political Action Committee. It is a great honor to have the faith and trust of so many of Kentucky’s educators. It is my intent that their voices are heard and heeded in Frankfort.
KEPAC is a non-partisan organization. Their interest is in who is the best candidate to promote public schools and public-school educators in Frankfort. Every election they endorse Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike. There are members of both parties, serving in Frankfort right now, with KEPAC endorsements.
I try to avoid talking about my opponent in this race. It is not about him and his failings. It is about me, and how I will represent the 5th District. I do think that it is important to mention that while the incumbent is a sitting member of the Senate Education committee, he has NOT been endorsed by KEPAC or any other public education group. He is not seen as a friend to public education and sits on the committee with the purpose of moving state and federal tax money away from public schools and into private hands.
We must protect public education. It is the cornerstone of our democracy. Do not listen to the lies and misinformation found on social media about the poor condition of our schools. Come visit a school, talk to a teacher, attend a school board meeting. You will see, public school teachers care about their students and our students want to be in class to learn.
What we need are legislators who will not hold the resources teachers need hostage to their personal and political agenda.
