Kentucky Deserves Better

A project of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth to show that Kentuckians deserve good jobs, clean water and air, and safe and healthy families. We want adequate, honest, and transparent government. We aim to tell our decision-makers that this is the Kentucky we deserve.

Join us. Let Congressman Hal Rogers know that Kentucky deserves better than the harmful decisions he is making.

I am a Kentuckian.
I am a mother!
I want to see every child in the state of KY have access to enough food and adequate nutrition to make sure they are healthy. BUT Hal Rogers voted to cut the WIC program which would cause 10,600 women and children to go hungry!

I’m a Kentuckian.
I am a student.
I want to see future students receive the grants they need to attend university and follow their bliss. That’s why I want Pell grants to help stop the brain drain from our commonwealth.
But Hal Rogers wants to cut $85 million from this fund.

I’m a Kentuckian. I’m a son, grandson, and nephew. I want to see clear streams and cleaner air so I can lead a healthier life, breathe better, and feel better. BUT, Hall Rogers has voted to restrict the EPA and push strip mining which pollutes the water and air. Kentucky Deserves Better!

I’m a Kentuckian. I’m a citizen in Hazard. 
I want to see an end to mountaintop removal. 
That’s why I want legislation to end valley fills. I want legislation that protects our water and valley fills contaminate our water with with heavy metals. 
But Hal Rogers supports mountaintop removal.  Hal Rogers should support miners and mining communities.

I’m a Kentuckian. I’m an underground miner of 20+ years. 
I would like my children and grandchildren to have mountains without flat tops and water that is clean in our streams and lakes and clean water they don’t have to buy at Walmart with jobs they didn’t have to sacrifice mountains of Kentucky for.  Kentucky is worth more. 
Hal Rogers plans to cut environmental protections from the EPA.

Representative Hal Rogers:
I am a student of Berea College in Madison County, KY. I am originally from Sevierville, TN, but have come to look at Kentucky as my home. I want to see more Pell grants given towards education to help us break the poverty cycle that persists in the Appalachia Region of the United States. Sir, you cannot cut $3.6 billion in grant money for education and expect peoples’ lives to improve. I know that your job is not easy and not everyone can be pleased, but education is one thing that is necessary to secure a livelihood. You may not hold the same beliefs as I do, but I know that if you pray and earnestly seek God’s guidance, you will make the best decisions for us all.
Have a blessed day,
Isaac

I am a student at Berea College with many friends in the community and a love for Kentucky’s land. I want to see a government that supports the least of us first, that values the education of all people regardless of their class and that works to maintain and improve our natural resources and our state’s beauty and richness.  But in your work, you support measures that gut heat subsidies for low-income families, eliminate 10,600 Kentucky women and children from the WIC program, bar funds to implement the new health care reform law, cut $3.6 million from Pell Grants and limit eligibility for students  and you have supported bills such as HR 2584 which restricts the ability of the U.S. EPA to enforce laws that protect our land.  It seems to me that you do not represent me or many other Kentuckians in our desire for a more just and sustainable commonwealth.  Kentucky deserves better!  If you cannot be the change, please do not get in our way to make it for ourselves.  Best Regards, Saxon Lee Brown
