The Herald-Leader's endorsement for Jack Conway centered mostly around his being the most experienced candidate. This may indeed be the case, but I'd like to offer an additional observation: We have no observable evidence that indicates "experienced" bureaucrats do a great job running government.
"Experienced" bureaucrats don't ask questions, don't find new solutions, and give us more of the same thing we've always had — government that doesn't works for our best interests.
Everyone tells me they want elected officials who provide real solutions and don't dodge questions. Here I am, Kentucky.
I am the only candidate who has provided a concrete, workable solution to fix the state pension system poised to bankrupt. I am the only candidate who knows how to get broadband internet to all Kentuckians.
And most importantly, I am the only candidate who is willing and able to look at the facts and data of each problem and can implement any solution that works for Kentucky — regardless of which political party presents it. I want to be a public servant, simple as that. Let's try something new.
On a final note, I'd like to thank the Herald-Leader for agreeing to hear me out for a possible endorsement. Other media outlets have decided to ignore and marginalize me simply for having the audacity to not chose to put a D or an R next to my name. The Herald-Leader could have done the same but chose not to. Thank you for listening.
