Bevin's Pension Madness

This message is from John Wade, a retired Professor of Economics from Eastern Kentucky University and KFTC member from Madison County:

Dear Friend,
As a retired public educator, I have had a front-row seat to the madness surrounding Kentucky’s public pension crisis and the crippling budget cuts it's causing across our Commonwealth.

I'm writing today to tell you that Gov. Bevin and the Kentucky Retirement System Board of Trustees have the power to end this madness as early as next week, and they need to hear from you.

Despite grassroots power, utility money sways legislators in the solar fight

A home with solar panels on its roof

Anyone who has followed the progress of Senate Bill 100, which attacked ordinary Kentuckians’ access to rooftop solar during the 2019 General Assembly, knows that this legislative session, monopoly utilities were determined to have their way.

Solar on the Rise: A Celebration

While rooftop solar may have taken a hit this past legislative session, solar continues to be a viable and growing industry in the state. Join solar advocates, installers and everyday Kentuckians to learn more about solar energy's bright future here.

We'll have music, workshops, food and more! Fun for the whole family.

Voices of people fighting to restore Voting Rights

Quotes from the Rally For Voting Rights from some of the people who have lost the right to vote fighting to have their voices heard

“I’m a Kentuckian, I’m a citizen of the United States. How are you going to tell me that somebody who does all that doesn’t have the right to vote? How are you going to tell me that 312,000 should be weighed by these men and women to see if they have their god given right to vote?”
— Michael Hiser (Louisville)
