Cherlynn will work to fully fund public education as the best investment we can make in Kentucky's future. Strong public education is key to successful economies and communities. Cherlynn will also fight for universal Pre-K and affordable college to support families and create a more robust workforce.
As the daughter of a teacher, Cherlynn stands firm behind the notion that a pension is a promise. Our pension system wasn't broken, but rather underfunded. Kentucky's public employees deserve legislators that will fight for their futures.
Cherlynn strongly believes that healthcare is a basic human right, so her ultimate goal is single-payer healthcare for all. Until then, she will work to ensure all Kentuckians have access to quality, affordable healthcare. This includes addressing the mental health crisis, the opioid crisis and legalizing medical marijuana.
It is past time for Kentucky to have comprehensive tax reform. Kentucky needs a fair and equitable tax code that ends corporate giveaways and closes loopholes. In addition to changes in our tax laws, we need new, dedicated streams of revenue like expanded gambling, promoting tourism and medical marijuana.
As your State Representative, Cherlynn will support laws that will facilitate the boom in renewable energy and create green jobs. She will also support entrepreneurial innovation and challenge businesses to engineer ways to reduce our carbon emissions.
