Prior to March, I would have easily said pensions, budget, healthcare and education. I think the last six (6) months have shown us that recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic takes precedent as the #1 challenge. Both parties in both houses of the General Assembly must lay down their swords and come together to develop a comprehensive plan for school recovery, business recovery and improved broadband access statewide. The pandemic has pushed our small businesses to the brink of disaster and that business recovery must address their needs.
Being a responsible gun owner myself since I was 12 years old, I see no easy or quick fix for this terrible issue. Societal change at home is the beginning in my opinion. Thousands of Kentuckians have grown up with guns in the home and have learned the responsible way to conduct themselves around guns. Hunters and competitive shooters come in all ages, both male and female but the consistent factor is that they are responsible. Parents who own guns absolutely must take responsibility for the safe and secure storage of guns and the teaching of children that they are not toys and that they are dangerous and should not be used to settle problems on the street. I guess you could view my belief as that of responsible education for starters.
Expanded Medicaid is the first step followed by a concerted move to reduce the cost of prescription drugs from big pharma.
Making sure that women have full consideration of management and executive level positions in all career fields. It is absolutely ridiculous that in 2020 we even have to have that discussion. I am very proud of the fact that through my career I hired a number of women for management level positions and fought for them to have the same pay as their male counterparts. I will continue that same fight as long as I am alive and will challenge anyone who feels differently. Two of the absolute best supervisors that I had during my time were women and I would go back and work for either of them again today.
I think that the mail in voting measures implemented during this year's Primary Election were fabulous and I look forward to the November General Election to be just as smooth. Having spent several of my professional years dealing with electronic security for financial transactions and academic transmittal on a university campus, I even believe that we have the technology to look seriously into voting online. That raises a number of concerns I realize, but if the financial world can transfer literally billions of dollars electronically utilizing encrypted data then why can't we vote online? Wild scenarios being painted by the President and others just don't exist in terms of widespread fraudulent voting.
