Every citizen in Kentucky should have access to quality, affordable healthcare. A bill was introduced to protect healthcare coverage for pre existing conditions and unfortunately our current leadership in the House refused to vote on it.
The United States is the only country in the world who doesn’t offer such a plan. I support universal healthcare that will give every Kentuckian health insurance that will:
Public education has been under attack for sometime in Kentucky. Our teachers and public schools have been underfunded and they are organizing for better conditions.
I support repealing the right to work legislation. This legislation only hurts Kentucky workers. Most of us grew up in strong union roots and workers all across the state fought hard for the rights and benefits many enjoy today.
We must fight to protect all workers - Men and women alike - who go to work everyday and need good working conditions and benefits.
The coal industry is over. Families in Perry and Harlan counties work hard everyday and still live from payday to payday.
We need jobs that pay good wages. Raising the minimum wage will help stabilize the economy.
High speed and broadband internet accessibility is a must to increase job availability. Increased availability will provide access to many remote jobs that pay good wages.
28% of our people live in poverty and this is unacceptable.
We need to update our water systems ensuring all have access to good, clean water.
Update our sewer systems so all homes have access to sewage instead of straight pipes still running in our creeks.
Our current industrial parks need to be filled with new industry.
Re construct our current roads and bridges for better access to our areas.
Expand broadband to every Kentuckian. The internet is essential for all in bringing our economy to modern times. Many new businesses are online and need broadband to open businesses in our area.
I also support legalizing medical marijuana.
