PHOTOS: Teachers, Local Kentuckians Hold “Won’t Be Bullied By Bevin” Press Conference in Henderson to Hold Bevin Accountable
This afternoon, teachers and local Kentuckians gathered together for a press conference in Henderson, marking the first stop of the “Won’t Be Bullied By Bevin” tour throughout the commonwealth, to hold Matt Bevin accountable for his insults and attacks on teachers and working families.
“For the last four years we’ve had a governor who has knocked down our teachers and public school system. And with less than a month until Election Day we’re holding Matt Bevin accountable for bullying Kentuckians,” said State Representative Rob Wiederstein of Henderson. “Momentum is building across our commonwealth for a governor who will stand with our families and put our teachers and public education first, and today’s event shows Western Kentucky is excited to elect Andy Beshear.”
“Matt Bevin’s mean-spirited insults have demonstrated that he doesn’t respect working families – and we’re finished taking his attacks,” said Mike Haile, a retired teacher from Henderson. “Western Kentuckians know that respecting educators and strengthening public education are on the ballot this November, and that’s why I’m voting for Andy Beshear.”
