The top priority of our administration will be to safeguard Kentucky's Public Education System. We will Keep the Promise made to Kentucky's Educators. We will stand up to those willing to sacrifice experienced and dedicated educators for their own political and financial gain.
We will call out the corrupt processes that have left our citizens more vulnerable to becoming victims of illegal drug use. We will fight to ensure our children have a future, free from the addictions taking too many Kentucky lives. We will end the state-sponsored drug loophole.
We will work with Republicans and Democrats to give the public realistic expectations for a fix to this self-inflicted crisis. We will call out those who continue to lie about the real problems behind the epidemic. We will offer new funding solutions that do NOT include raising taxes.
Kentuckians send hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars to states like Indiana and Ohio each year. Meanwhile, Kentucky's elected leaders are wined and dined by casino magnates and gaming experts on the possibilities for Kentucky casinos. It's time that the average Kentuckian benefits from casino tax revenue.
We will trim the budget. We will stop the wasteful spending that steals the tax dollars of hard-working Kentuckians and puts the lives of our citizens at risk.
