By STUMBO CAMPAIGN Greg Stumbo attended the annual Breakfast of Champions hosted by State Representative Joni Jenkins of Jefferson County. The breakfast is a chance to bring all the Democrats on the ballot together for an event open to the public, allowing voters to hear directly from the candidates days before the primary election. As an unopposed candidate in the May 21stprimary, Stumbo took the opportunity to speak to the crowd to thank all the Democratic candidates for running and to thank everyone at the event for getting involved and being engaged with this important election. “We’re going to have a strong ticket up and down the ballot come November, and together we’re going to win this election and bring respect and integrity back to Frankfort on behalf of the people of Kentucky.” Stumbo roused the crowd with a tone of unity and focus for the general election. Stumbo also took the opportunity to speak about the primary reason he’s running for his old job. “I was the first state Attorney General in the nation to sue Purdue Pharma because I saw what they were doing to our state and our communities early on. The big drug manufacturers and distributors have decimated Kentucky families. If I were to ask everyone in this room to raise their hand if someone in their family, in their church or in their community has been affected by this opioid crisis, every hand in the room would go up – including mine. These corporate criminals have not been held to enough account, and it’s my mission to do that by making them face a jury right here in Kentucky courts. I’m going to make them pay.” Many of the Democratic candidates were present for the event, which is hosted annually by State Representative Joni Jenkins, a leader for Kentuckians in Frankfort for over two decades. The breakfast was held at the Pleasure Ridge Park Fire Department in Louisville, Kentucky.
BY STUMBO CAMPAIGN The annual Scott County Franklin Delano Roosevelt Dinner hosted by the Scott County Democratic Party was held Friday evening, May 17th, at Georgetown College. The event brings together various Democratic and non-partisan groups to provide an opportunity to hear from their Democratic candidates ahead of the primary election on Tuesday. Former Governor Martha Layne Collins, who was responsible for bringing the largest Toyota plant in the country to Scott County which completely revitalized the community, was the keynote speaker at the annual dinner. She spoke, among other things, about how Frankfort is no longer putting everyday Kentuckians first, and that a change of leadership is needed. The former governor was introduced at the event by retired U.S. Marine, fighter pilot and former congressional candidate Amy McGrath. McGrath spoke about the importance of having Collins as a female governor to look up to when she was a child, and that along with her mother, who was a doctor, she had great role models who proved that she could do anything. The crowd also heard from various candidates including Greg Stumbo, who took the opportunity to pump up the crowd and get them excited about the Tuesday primary and the general election in November. He also thanked Governor Martha Layne Collins and Lt. Col. Amy McGrath for their important leadership on behalf of the people of Kentucky. Stumbo spoke on the opioid crisis, which has affected all communities, including the growing community of Scott County. “I’m running to hold those drug companies accountable. I’ve done it before, I’m fighting them now, and as Attorney General, I’m going to bring them before Kentucky courts to make them pay.” Stumbo assured the crowd in his bid to win his old seat back.
BY STUMBO CAMPAIGN Greg Stumbo, a candidate for Kentucky Attorney General, spent the afternoon of Monday, May 13th, to stop in and meet with the voters of Madison County before speaking at a monthly gathering of the Madison County Democratic Executive Committee, a group that organizes democratic voters in the area and hosts community events. Stumbo stopped by Vintage 18, a restaurant in Richmond, to say hello to diners and meet with supporters. He spoke with people about what was on their minds in this upcoming election, and to offer his vision for the office of the Attorney General. His last stop of the evening was at the monthly Madison County Democratic meeting, where he spoke to a great crowd of enthusiastic voters who are ready for November. “When I was Attorney General, I brought the office to the people of Kentucky by opening field offices in Benton, Louisville, Prestonsburg and Maysville. I wanted to make sure we were accessible to everyone in the Commonwealth, so folks didn’t have to drive all the way to Frankfort to be heard. I also established the Kentucky Bureau of Investigation, a unit that brought investigative staff together to make their work efficient and coordinated. We confiscated more illegal drugs than all the other state and federal drug investigative organizations combined. I want to bring that kind of efficiency and openness back to Frankfort.” Greg told the crowd in Richmond.
