State Rep. Reginald Meeks is hitting back at Frankfort.
Check out this bit from his latest email blast:
Here’s what I know:
- Pay Day lenders keep thousands of good Kentuckians in hoc, costing us millions. But a bill to bring these families relief is DOA
- Cockfighting is apparently the real state sport
- Coal reserves must be endless, and
- one legislator’s fear of lottery ticket buyers being herded like sheep to the corner convenience store led to a 20 year ban on informing you exactly where lottery proceeds go and how they are spent. [I’m not sure, but I’m fairly certain we have not missed the $7 - 10 million each year we left sitting on the table because we chose to not be transparent with our citizens…..]
Also, if you have a problem with a state agency, gut the agency and put their personnel on traffic patrol.
And whatever you do, take all the federal money you can get your needy little paws on — but keep “them” as far away from “us” as possible. . .
People can and do put political ideology, dogma and expedience over common sense, sound public policy and good government, but I am as shocked to learn this as you are.
