Most of my life I have been keenly interested in our commonwealth's government, its many public figures and the public policies that emerge from the political process. I am in my 16th year of representing this community in elected public office. I have always tried to be straightforward and honest with those that I serve.
It is with that in mind that I submit to every Boyle Countian that Ben Chandler has been the most politically courageous public official that we have seen in a very long time. I have never witnessed a public official who has on more occasions acted without regard for his political well-being to do what is in the public interest.
The special election for Congress on Tuesday is one of the most important in recent times. An honest, experienced, courageous and independent voice is so vitally important at this time. Ben Chandler's is that needed voice.
