Name: Steve Jones
Position sought: KY House of Representatives District 23
Party affiliation: Democrat
Relevant Experience: I am not a politician. I am a dedicated community member and public servant. I serve my community as a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate serving abused and neglected children, as a member of Bridge KY helping families in need and serving as Communications Chair of the NAACP Cave Area Community Unit.
My platform includes many items, but the three main planks are Education, Healthcare, and Equality.
Education is the bedrock of our society. Access to quality and affordable education for all is the key to solving most of the problems in our Commonwealth. Quality education leads to quality jobs, quality solutions, and quality life.
Healthcare is a very serious issue in our Commonwealth. We have more obesity, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, septicemia, and heart disease than the next 40 states. We need affordable healthcare for all, as well as further developing programs to help our citizens develop healthy lifestyles.
Equality is a long-standing issue for not only our Commonwealth but the entire nation. We need equality for all, regardless of age, sex, gender identity, race, faith or sexual orientation. We need to address Systemic Racism and the inequality we have placed on People of Color in the Commonwealth for too long.
