Here’s Jeff Hoover’s response to Steve Beshear’s address last night:
If you cant view the video:
“I was somewhat disappointed; I expected the Governor would talk about the main issues affecting Kentucky, tax reform, pension reform. But I also expected he would have some recommendations. He would have an agenda, he would have some proposals on how to solve those, and we didn’t hear that tonight.
I think every member of the General Assembly, Republican and Democrat is looking for leadership. They’re looking for his ideas, looking for what he wants to get done, to get something out there so we can begin that discussion and we didn’t get that tonight. We just heard ‘Here’s the problems, I look forward to working with you over the next year’ and that was it. He talked about the need for more revenue, what’s his proposal to get more revenue? We didn’t hear any of that.
So overall I was disappointed. I like Steve Beshear personally, but I was disappointed we didn’t get specific proposals. We didn’t know what his recommendations are to solve the problems, and I think most members of the General Assembly, Republicans and Democrats, felt the same way.”
