Voters have an important decision to make Nov. 8 about the future of our state.
I am a rural prosecutor from Western Kentucky. After graduating from the University of Kentucky, I was twice elected as the Hopkins County attorney, a county that has nearly 70 percent Democratic registration.
I have three times been awarded the Outstanding Performance Award from the Beshear administration for my work in child-support collections. My mother was a single parent and I know firsthand their struggles. Kentucky has over $1.4 billion in outstanding child-support obligations.
Jack Conway failed to address this issue because he was attempting to leave the office of attorney general.
Conway has also failed to meet the needs of prosecutors and his poor performance led to my endorsement by the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police and also Lexington's county attorney, Larry Roberts, a lifelong Democrat. I will be the first prosecutor to hold this important office in over 20 years.
Our current attorney general sits on the sidelines while an overreaching federal government destroys jobs in Kentucky. It's time for change. I will fight "Obamacare" and the Environmental Protection Agency. I will always defend the Constitution and protect private-property rights.
The office of attorney general can restrain an aggressive federal government and prosecute public corruption. I will do both without fear or favor. Regardless of party or patronage, I will work hard to see the rule of law upheld.
My name is Todd P'Pool, and I humbly ask for your vote on Nov. 8.
