Editor's note - The following is a response to The Advocate's endorsement Sunday of Alice Forgy Kerr in the 6th District congressional race.
Tuesday's election comes at a very important time for central Kentucky families. The cost of health-care is out of control. Unfair trade policies are sending good-paying jobs overseas. Corporations like Enron are ripping off middle-class investors. And the promises we made to our courageous veterans are not being kept.
More than ever, Kentucky families need someone in Congress who's on their side, someone who shares their values, and has the experience and independence to get the job done. As a father of three young children, I want our families to have a representative who'll fight to protect them and make sure they get a good education.
That's why I'm running for Congress. No matter the issue or who's in charge in Washington, you can count on me to stand up for what's right for Central Kentucky. I'm about getting the job done, whether it means standing up to the special interests or working across party lines.
