Vote Steve Riggs for Kentucky State Representative 2016
I have confidence that my success and experience as a state lawmaker will serve as a backstop to curb the radical changes Governor Bevin wants to make that will harm the finances of families. Even the law and judges have stopped him time and time again. My position in the legislature can be an effective part in the checks and balances we need to stop Bevin's abuse of power. Our liberty is too important.
Now, more than ever, is the time for steady, pragmatic, and confident leadership. I have won several awards for my legislative work on behalf of the citizens in the community. The legislation and ideas I have passed or supported have dealt with reforming and improving education, battling transportation congestion and safety, widening access to healthcare coverage, assisting public safety leaders, and promoting the growth of small business in Kentucky. We balanced our budget again without any broad-based tax increases. We were successful in making important changes in our public pension system to address the future costs of concern. Citizens can be certain I am working hard on their behalf to fight for a better Kentucky.
My wife of almost 29 years, Jenny, is a valuable partner, because as an elementary school teacher, she keeps me focused on building a better future for our children. Too many important decisions are made without a long-term perspective. My sense of responsibility and community values are strongly influenced by my faith (United Methodist), my family, and time serving others in the Boy Scouts organization and U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Having both public and private sector success is an important asset that I continually bring to the state capitol. Again, I am asking for your vote and donation in 2016. Thank you.
Your Public Servant,
