A Chicago feeling
Gov. Steve Beshear applied to the federal government for a waiver of the “No Child Left Behind” acts so Kentucky schools could still receive federal assistance without being held accountable. A few days later, the teachers union endorsed the governor for his re-election.
This seemed kind of early, so I suppose the next thing we hear of will be the union taking up a “special collection” for a donation to Beshear’s campaign.
That sounds like the old Chicago protection racket, and not too ethical to me.
Please join me in voting for his opponent, David Williams.
In favor of honest elections
As an old poem states, “The time has come … to talk of many things,” and I truly believe the time has come to talk about Bill Johnson, Republican candidate for Kentucky secretary of state.
We lost a great officeholder when Trey Grayson left us. He had reduced the costs in the office and made a great number of the problems facing entrepreneurs disappear. Bill Johnson has promised to further cut the red tape required to do business in Kentucky — making more jobs for in the state — as well as make sure ACORN and similar groups will not be allowed to corrupt our voting booths with falsified voter registrations or people who are not legally entitled to vote.
As someone who has worked at the polls for many years, I am very concerned that we have honest elections. That is why I am supporting Bill Johnson for Secretary of State. Johnson has already served this state in a number of ways. First in the U.S. Navy and then as a state certified school teacher. If you are in favor of honest elections and would like to see more jobs in Kentucky, please join me at the polls Nov. 8 and vote to elect Bill Johnson as our next Kentucky secretary of state.
