2018 Elections05 Oct

On November 6, 2018, Kentuckians will cast votes for every seat in the state House of Representatives and several seats in the Senate. The candidates that prevail will begin their work as legislators in January for the 2019 term of the Kentucky General Assembly.  Capitol Dome

You have an important role to play in this process.  Legislators will soon have to grapple with significant issues related to health care, education, tax policy and the criminal justice system. Candidates for office need to hear from you now in order to start the conversation on issues that they will consider during the next legislative session and beyond. No matter who wins on Election Day, a large number of seats will be held by first time candidates who may be new to the work of the Catholic Conference of Kentucky (“CCK”).

To help start these conversations, CCK has prepared a one-page handout that highlights those issues in which we have an opportunity to make an impact in the near future.  You can view it by clicking here.

Please study the document and engage with candidates on issues that will be in play during the 2019 legislative session.  More importantly, share the document  with friends and distribute copies at your schools and parishes.  

Thank you for your faithful citizenship!
