If I had known that all you have to do as governor of Kentucky is to slash budgets, veto bills, make health care more difficult to obtain and make higher education more difficult to acquire, I would have run for governor, too. None of that is difficult. All you need to do your job is a pen.
But since I believe county clerks should do the job they were elected to do, I would have lost. That kind of thinking would have ruined any chance of becoming governor.
