    I have been a tireless advocate of improving the ways the people’s business is handled. Even as a freshman legislator, I advocated simplifying our legislative process and ending the tyranny of the powerful few who too often ignore the stated will of the people.

 

    Continual partisan infighting threatens to paralyze our nation. Kentucky needs to rise above that and move forward - not just spin its wheels while the rest of the nation passes us by. I will continue to unravel the knots in Frankfort - not to expand state government or spend more money, but to require it to be more responsive to the people. Government should be run like a publicly-traded company - which in a sense it is. Its deliberations and decisions should be transparent, and reflect the will of the folks who actually do the voting and pay the taxes and  make Kentucky great. For example, now that a Republican majority controls the House, every bill (including if not especially budget bills) is available for legislators and citizens alike to review for 3 days before a vote.

 As recent events have demonstrated, continual partisan infighting threatens to paralyze state government. While that may not seem like such a tragedy, Kentucky needs to move forward—not just spin its wheels while the rest of the nation passes us by. I will continue to unravel the knots in Frankfort—not to expand state government or spend more money, but to require it to be more responsive to the people. Government should be run like a publicly-traded company—which in a sense it is.

    Kentucky should be respected for living up to the motto we proudly declare on our state flag: “United We Stand,

Divided We Fall.”  Regardless of political party or persuasion, elected officials need to act like servant-

leaders once again.
