KENTON COUNTY TAX INCREASE!
Did you know that the Kenton County Fiscal Court approved the county budget a 4% increase in property taxes? This despite the fact that Kenton County now has over $28 million dollars in surplus that represents over 35% of the annual operating budget!
The Fiscal Court has another vote in September to set the actual tax rate. Yes this tax increase can be stopped! Commissioner Beth Sewell and Commissioner Joe Nienaber ran for office and asked for our votes based on their fiscal responsibility. Call them and tell them to stop the spending...stop the additional tax!
Commissioner Jon Draud was the lone vote against this tax increase. This is what Commissioner Draud had to say about the tax increase,
"It's not appropriate to make a 4% increase with a 35% reserve," Draud said during the meeting in Independence. The county has $28 million in reserves.... River City News, Wednesday, June 10, 2015
What can you do? Send the Kenton County Commissioners a letter, call them and attend a Fiscal Court meeting and make your voice heard. Next Kenton County Fiscal Court meeting, Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 7:00PM Kenton County Courthouse 303 Court Street 3rd Floor Covington, Ky. 41011
NO ADDTIONAL TAX.. STOP THE SPENDING

We have rescheduled Dr. Lee Watts!
This is a fantastic event 7:00PM this Thursday, June 25.
Dr. Lee Watts is speaking at the Florence Holiday Inn, 7905 Freedom Way, Florence, KY 41042. This is very easy to get to, take I-75 south from Cincinnati, US-42 exit, one past the Mall-Y'all.
Dr. Lee knows as you do that America is under attack! The greatest threat is not terrorism, or communism; it is sin and Godlessness. America started as a Christian nation, and she can be again, but it will take a new generation of patriots. LET FREEDOM RING! Dr. Watts is motivating and enlightening in his "Teaching of America’s Christian Heritage." When you leave you have no doubt that America is founded on Christian principals and you will leave proud of this fact and motivated to defend America. You will learn countless facts as Dr. Watts will fill the room with endless energy and a wealth of knowledge on the foundation of America.
This is a FREE event. Great venue, easy to get to and lots of like minded folks to meet join ranks with. Come early at 6:30pm to get a good seat and strike up a conversation with some new friends. Or stay after to discuss the presentation.
BRING THE CHILDREN as they will not learn this in their Common Core history class.

Ken Rechtin's Another Voice: A Democrat's Guide to Voting for Republicans
So here you have it: A Democrat telling you Republicans how to vote in your primary! If you have already made your choice or don’t like being told what to do by a Democrat, you should stop reading right here. But, if you want to know my opinion, keep on reading.
First, I must tell you: “No matter who you choose, you cannot go wrong.” All of your candidates, Matt Bevin (Matt), Hal Heiner (Hal) and James Comer (James) exhibit all the necessary qualities to run as a Republican. Chris McDaniel (Chris), Lt. Governor candidate paired with James Comer, was in the boxing ring for Comer at this debate.
(Please note I have skipped Will T. Scott (Will). He skipped this debate, didn’t even send his running mate or a stand in. He will, at the end of all the shouting and voting, be skipped by the voters as well.)
Matt, Hal, and Chris are all fiscal conservatives. They are pro-business, pro-coal, pro-small government, pro-lower taxes (shifting from income to consumption based tax systems), pro-school choice, pro “right to work”, pro-life, pro-second amendment, and pro-marriage-only-between-a-man-and-a-woman! They all have multi-point plans, blueprints, and maps for the future. They are all anti-federal regulation and anti-Obama. You cannot go wrong with any one of these!
So, how do you make a choice? Based on what?
How about how they dressed and their campaign literature?
Hal and Chris were “dressed for success” in the customary political business suit, starched shirt and appropriate tie. Matt was casually dressed in an open collar dress shirt, dress slacks and coordinated sport coat. (Matt would have won my vote had he opted for blue jeans and red gym shoes!)
Matt’s campaign literature is simple. It contains brief bios of Matt and his running mate, Jenean Hampton, with pictures of them in military garb. Bullet point positions are listed on the last page and the reader is then directed to the website for his full “blueprint for a better Kentucky”. (Why is his plan a blueprint?)
James’s glossy literature is small like Matt’s (5 X 8). Chris McDaniel is relegated to the back page. James’s centerfold is a beautiful family portrait of James with his wife and three children in front of a stall and horse (Pictures with horses are good Kentucky politics).
Hal’s literature is really expensive! The piece that was available on the table and passed out by the paid staffers was full color (8.5 X 11), gloss finish, eight pages with excellent graphics. It has the necessary picture of Hal in hard hat, Hal in business suit, Hal with shirt sleeves rolled up working at a desk, Hal with children and family, Hal with running mate and, the most important picture, Hal with dogs. (Almost, but not quite as good as a horse in Kentucky politics!)
How about how they performed on stage?
Matt was enthusiastic, expressive, and genuine. When on the attack, his barbs were directed towards James and Chris as representing career politicians and all that is wrong in Frankfort.
Chris did a very satisfactory job on the stage. He stuck to the talking point that he and James have the experience in Frankfort to get things done. Chris did an excellent job of defending James’s and his records. But, if their team wins, Chris will not be the Governor, James will. Where was James?
Hal appeared business-like, reserved, cold, and aloof. He was “above the fray”. Hal seemed like a person who was very comfortable in the bankers’ boardrooms. He is a developer of industrial sites. He is an engineer by education and early profession.
So, what do I think?
If you like our junior Senator Rand Paul and Representative Thomas Massie, you’ll love Matt Bevin!
If you like our senior Senator Mitch McConnell, your choice should be James Comer.
If you remember and liked John Y. Brown as Governor, I think that you will really like Hal Heiner.
For a stark contrast with Jack Conway, the presumptive Democratic Governor nominee, you should choose Matt Bevin. Bevin versus Conway will be much more entertaining than Comer vs Conway or Heiner vs Conway.
So, please remember to vote on May 19th!
Some predicted that Senator McConnell if elected as Majority Leader would not hold the conservative line. This article from Breitbart outlines McConnells failure. These lines from the article say it all:
...it's quite clear from the empirical data that nothing has changed, and Reid's office is clearly quite happy about it. It's as if he's still the Senate Majority Leader.McConnell on the other hand is getting beat all over the place. Whether it's by choice or by accident, either way he currently has no defense for his failures as a leader.
We need to vote these rascals and all the lifetime politicians out of office and get fresh ideas into office.
