Campaign Message As state representative, Josh will stand up for everyday Kentuckians by supporting education, fighting heroin, protecting pensions, keeping taxes low, improving animal welfare, and strengthening small businesses.
I love Northern Kentucky and I want to see it continue to grow and improve. I'm running to restore decency, transparency, and common sense to Frankfort. We need to support public education, state employees, and hard working families.
I will get things done and Frankfort - things that matter to Northern Kentucky. We have good schools and safe neighborhoods and I want to preserve the integrity of our community.
We need to get corporate welfare under control. I support job creation, but the amount of corporate tax breaks in Kentucky has gotten out of hand. Small businesses are crucial to Kentucky's economy and we should focus more resources on them.
There's no need to raise taxes, but we do need comprehensive tax reform in Kentucky. We have a serious revenue issue and we give away more in tax breaks than we collect in tax revenue. I oppose the recent tax increases that implemented a six percent sales tax on auto repair, veterinarian services, gym memberships, pool memberships, lawn care services, and non-profits.
