  • Thanks June

     I would like to publicly express my gratitude to June Daugherty, director of the Bullitt County YMCA, upon her recent retirement. 

    June has been an avid advocate for our community as she grew the YMCA into what it has become today. 

    Over the course of her career, June has acted as a teacher, fund-raiser, promoter and manager of the YMCA’s programs, assets and personnel while maintaining the organization’s Christian emphasis.

  • 2016 was another busy year

     Another year has come and gone.  They say time flies when you are having fun!  I don’t know about having fun but the clerks certainly have been busy this past year.

    The state continues to make changes to its computerized accounts receivable program.  

    Unfortunately, we are still required to run both the manual and computerized accounts receivable programs because the computerized program is still not capable of generating all of the needed reports. 

  • MWES more than renovated school

     Once a Mount Washington Elementary Brave, always a Mount Washington Elementary Brave.

    I spent seven years inside that school and it’s bittersweet to think about the changes that have been made, no matter how needed they were.

    Thanks to a terrible speech impediment, I spent from preschool to fourth grade earning scratch and sniff stickers twice a week if I could say my name correctly.

  • Positive work done in first week by the legislators

     FRANKFORT — For the first time since 1921, Republicans took control of the Kentucky House of Representatives, making our first week back to Frankfort a historic one. 

    We have been hard at work doing exactly what the voters of Kentucky sent us to Frankfort to accomplish. 

    The result of this was an extremely productive first week of the 2017 session, in which priority bills to improve the economy, protect life, and make government more accountable passed through the General Assembly. 

  • Pay close attention to issues in Frankfort

     This is my last newspaper report as your state representative for district 49. 

    A summary of my December committee meetings follows.

    1.  LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE. 

    KACO gave their report for 2017 County Legislative issues. The issue that will affect Bullitt County the most (if passed) is changing the road formula. Another concern raised involves a strain on our jails.

    2. TASK FORCE FOR PREVENTING CHILD ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION.(Which I chaired).
