Quick thinking saved a life
I want to thank the nurses and doctors at the emergency room of Hardin Memorial Hospital and the local AirEvac flight crew for saving my life. On April 25, at my home I felt the crush of pressure on my chest and arm, and told my husband, Sam, that I needed to go to the emergency room, that I thought I was having a heart attack.
On instinct, we drove directly to Hardin Memorial Hospital where I was immediately taken in, evaluated and treated. I was then flown to Baptist Hospital East in Louisville. There the doctor told me that the quick actions and decisions of the team at Hardin Memorial and the flight crew saved my life as it took only 84 minutes from entering the ER to treatment at BHE.
Thank you Hardin Memorial Hospital Emergency Room medical team.
I am writing in support of Kendrick Bryan’s candidacy for state representative.
I worked with Kendrick at Western Kentucky University and LaRue County High School and I saw his dedication to helping individuals.
As a resident assistant, coach and teacher, Kendrick worked to help students accomplish goals and defy expectations.
Kendrick understands the area because he is a lifelong resident. He is also a local graduate with connections to Sonora Elementary, East Hardin Middle School, Central Hardin High School and WKU-Elizabethtown.
Kendrick may defy expectations on Tuesday. He is the underdog in the race because he is not accepting contributions from political action committees or special interest groups. However, his stance is noticed by voters and he has the momentum to win the seat.
I ask Democrats to cast their ballots for Kendrick because the area needs a legislator who will empower others. The Frankfort incumbents are gridlocked and the legislature can’t overcome the standstill until new officials are sworn in.
Kendrick’s platform is dedicated to reforming how the state addresses budgets and redistricting. The two issues dominated the discussion during the general session, and Bryan is the only candidate publicly talking about solving these problems.
When voters go to the polls, I hope they look at the ballot and analyze who will do a better job. This letter is a reference for Kendrick because I know his work habits and history of results.
Vote for Kendrick Bryan on May 22 for bold leadership and positive results.
New York, N.Y.
I write to you today in support of Kendrick Bryan for state representative in the 25th district. Kendrick is a strong, principled advocate and the right fit for Hardin Countians looking for a new voice to change the culture of a broken Frankfort.
In 2009-2010, I served as student body president at Western Kentucky University and Kendrick served as vice president. While working alongside Kendrick, I found he has a great mind for policy: he’s active, energetic, full of ideas and, most importantly, he gets things done. Hundreds of students now have scholarships created in the last few years, very much thanks to Kendrick’s initiative.
Kendrick is a guy who loves to meet people, talk about what they think is important and how he can help. In my time meeting lawmakers from all over the commonwealth, I have never met anyone who takes as much time and listens as closely as Kendrick does. If you elect Kendrick, you will find unprecedented access to your voice in Frankfort.
And this is a time when we really have to look around and wonder if our voice in being heard in Frankfort. Special sessions happen so often we shouldn’t even bother to call them special. Frankfort’s gridlock makes Washington’s partisanship look like a walk in the park. We need new voices. Kendrick is a new voice and a great one at that. I encourage Democratic voters to cast their ballot for Kendrick Bryan on May 22.
