Cantrell keeps community focus in statehouse
McKenzie Cantrell has brought the common sense that defines the southend of Jefferson County to our state government.
Cantrell seeks re-election of the state’s 38th House District she has represented since 2017.
“The past two years have been a pivotal time for our commonwealth, and I have continually listened to you and stood up for what is best for our community,” Cantrell said. “Even when that has meant standing up against powerful interests or Gov. Bevin.”
During her short time in office, Cantrell has worked to support our first responders by voting for death benefits for the spouses and children of fallen officers; sponsor legislation to raise wages, protect healthcare and make sure families can care for a new baby or a sick family member.
She has fought against legislation designed to lower wages, weaken workplace safety and threaten workers’ freedom to join a union and negotiate their terms of employment.
She’s rejected any taxes on individuals while multi-millionaires and corporations get a tax break.
Cantrell has also looked out for the constituents in her district.
Making it easier for families who want to become foster or adoptive parents or working to give our students and teachers the education system they deserve by voting against the wastewater-pension bill and profit-focused charter school schemes and advocating for local control of JCPS are a few examples.
Cantrell has also worked in the statehouse to ensure our neighborhood has the tools it needs to combat crime and the drug epidemic.
“It is an honor to be your representative, but there is still so much more that we can do together to make our community stronger,” Cantrell said. “ When you vote on November 6th, I hope that you allow me to continue to be your voice.”
