Ferguson believes in a better future for all

Emily Ferguson couldn’t idly stand by and do nothing after she saw what was happening to our state.

Ferguson is running for the state’s 72nd House District which includes parts of Bath, Nicholas, Fayette and Bourbon counties.

“I was raised on my family’s farm, where my parents taught me the importance of honesty, determination and hard work,” Ferguson said. “I will take these values to Frankfort as I work for the people of my district.

“My number one priority is to strengthen the public pension system in Kentucky. I will also work to increase investments in public education and to attract jobs that pay a fair wage. I believe in a better future for all of us and I look forward to working with each of you to make that a reality.”

The Kentucky AFL-CIO’s Committee on Political Education has endorsed Ferguson’s candidacy and she is an advocate for our teachers and the constituents she will serve once elected to office.

“As a product of public education, I cannot stand idly by and do nothing. I have the teachers’ back and will always be on the side of public education,” Ferguson said. “My number one priority is to make sure that every piece of legislation I file – and vote for – will represent the interests of people living in Bourbon, Bath, Nicholas and Fayette counties.”

Her dedication to all Kentuckians extends from the working class to the most vulnerable among us.

“We made a promise to our teachers, first responders, and other public employees who have served our community, and we owe it to them to ensure they are taken care of in their retirement years,” Ferguson said. “I believe in a better future for all of us and I look forward to working with each of you to make that a reality.”
