Kenton Attorney Race-More of the same?

The Tea meetings attract candidates as a good place to introduce themselves and get a pulse of the community.  A recent visit by Kenton County Attorney Stacy Tapke prompted the following response.  In a nutshell Kenton County needs a change.

Kenton County Attorney candidate Stacy Tapke previously spoke in front of the Tea Party and while she played up parts of her resume, she conveniently failed to mention her close connections with the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission (NKAPC), an unelected board that sets tax rates with no accountability to Kenton County taxpayers.

Tapke is the handpicked successor to her retiring boss, Gary Edmondson.  Tapke worked for Edmondson and then was immediately hired on by Edmondson in the County Attorney’s Office after graduating from law school in 2004. She is also an associate in his private law firm.

Repeal Kenton County’s Smoking Ban!

While I was attending a Kenton County Tea Party meeting one Wednesday evening at Pee Wee’s I was surprised to see Kris Knochelmann stumping for his campaign for Kenton County Judge-Executive. The reason I found it so unusual was because he was campaigning to a group who cherishes values consistent with liberty; fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets. While serving as Kenton County Commissioner on the previous fiscal court, Kris Knochelmann promoted and ultimately voted for the partial smoking ban that is now the law of the land in Kenton County. Support for a smoking ban is not consistent with the values of limited government or free markets. Private property is essential in a free market system and dictating to a private business what it can do on it’s own property violates private property rights and is a classic example of government overreach.

Veterans Day

Thank You Veterans

November 11 is our day to remember that freedom is not free.  Today we honor and remember those that have served and are serving in uniform.  The words of Ronald Reagan remind us that all Americans must defend and cherish freedom because as he said in 1967, "Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Let us be ever vigilant and respectful of those that wore and wear uniforms to protect our God given right to freedom and liberty.

Wednesday, Oct 9, Kenton Tea

The Kenton County Tea meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.  The next meeting is 6pm, Wednesday, October 9 at PeeWees Restaurant, 2325 Anderson Rd, Crescent Springs, KY.  The meeting end at 7:30.  Some eat dinner, some have something to drink and some only come to participate in the meeting.  At the Oct 9 meeting Kentucky Senator Chris McDaniel is speaking on Worker's Comp special funding.  Jamie Comer, Kentucky Agricultural Commissioner is also speaking.

Tolls are expected to be a big part of the meeting.  The Enquirer has sold us down the road and want us to pay tolls.  Our Northern Kentucky legislators must stand united against tolls.  We do not need any John McCains or Lindsay Grahams in our NKY Caucus.  We need unit cohesion within our ranks.
