I am Tony Downey. I only thought that you would have preferred to hear from the candidates mouth instead. By the way, I don't have a PR Person.

he's an honest christian man. I wouldnt bother commenting on here if i didnt think so. If he says he doesnt have a PR person than he doesnt. Just read up on him. Some one gave his fb info on here so go to that and it has alot of what you need to know. Its time people start voting for someone that truly cares. He wants changes, he's not in the race to be a big shot and make money. He's doing what he feels right.Thanks.

Here's the scoop... Tony Downey is an amazing husband and father with good Christian values. He volunteers his time to the community and his church. He has a master's degree in special ed (I believe it's in behavior disorders). His main focus will be on education. This district's schools have been on a steady decline for years. As a matter of fact, they are some of the lowest scoring schools in the state (stats are on the Ky Dept of Educ website). Our current senator has been in office for 28 years and he has done nothing for our area. The only times he has been to Ashland this past year was to attend Lobsterfest, a fundraiser at Moes and the Labor Day Parade in Catlettsburg. He did not bother to come at all during either major layoff at KDMC. The last legislation he sponsored was to make it law to be able to establish a trust for your pets. Seriously? That's the most pressing issue facing our area?

I am not a PR person or a politician. I am just an informed citizen who wants this area to prosper and not stay on the slippery slope it's currently on.
