Election day offers the people of this community an opportunity not only to exercise a sacred constitutional right but to validate what it means to be a genuine public servant, by electing individuals who truly have demonstrated by their public and private careers a real and "broad-based" commitment to public service.
Dr. Daniel Mongiardo is a proven dedicated physician who really knows health-care issues and who has chosen also to serve the public interest. He has been the victim of one of the most malicious negative campaigns I have ever witnessed. He's a good man whom I hope you reward for his positive campaign about real issues.
U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler, quite frankly, is one of the most courageous public officials I have ever had the pleasure to serve with or to observe on the public scene in this commonwealth. Time after time he has acted in the public interest rather than for his own political interest. I admire him greatly and urge you to re-elect him to Congress so he may continue to serve us with distinction.
