As a native of Jessamine County, the primary reason that I seek to become the State Representative for the 39th District is my sincere desire to help correct what I see as growing problems within our state. Last November, the 39th District voted overwhelmingly to elect a Republican, Matt Bevin, as our Governor. I must believe that this was because the voters share, as I do, his vision for the future of the Commonwealth.
I am a lifetime resident of the 39th District. I was educated in its public schools and went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. After college I enrolled in and graduated from Valparaiso University, School of Law where I received my Juris Doctor. After law school, I returned to Nicholasville where I married my wonderful wife, Erin.
For the last 8 years I have practiced law in Nicholasville, and through that work, I have become familiar with both the laws of the Commonwealth and the working of our court system. I have become all too familiar with the many issues that are important to small business owners and local families. In addition to my private practice, I am the City Attorney for Wilmore, Kentucky and through those efforts, I have learned much about the unique problems that face our cities.
The most important issue facing the Commonwealth is the financial problems that exist within the state's retirement systems. Prior administrations have lacked the courage to make the tough decisions that the state's current and retired employees, police and educators deserve. These problems demand solutions which must come through the streamlining of state government which will make it work more efficiently. I will work to help eliminate this crisis without either creating additional debt on the backs of future generations or raising taxes upon current taxpayers.
