As election day approaches, many — maybe most — of us are growing numb to the increasingly negative messages coming from the campaigns, especially those of the candidates for governor. Such attacks have a tendency to turn voters off to the entire electoral and political process.
That’s a shame, especially in this election, for the issues confronting Kentucky have never been more important. At a time when we face crucial decisions regarding the future of our state, we need people of experience, intelligence, and integrity.
Crit Luallen, candidate for state auditor, is just such a person. As the descendant of two Kentucky governors, public service is in her blood. Crit has devoted her adult life to working on behalf of Kentucky. No candidate for any office in this election knows Kentucky, its people, its needs, and its potential, better than Crit Luallen. We need people who will carefully manage public resources; we need people who will restore our confidence in the political process. We need people like Crit.
