Out of the 120 counties comprising the Commonwealth of Kentucky , we are one of four counties (Boone, Jefferson, Fayette, and Kenton) responsible for half the revenue. Simply stated, Boone County is one of the strongest economic engines driving the Kentucky economy. Yet, despite this fact we only get back .29 for every dollar sent to Frankfort .
I believe that ending government inefficiency will in turn increase the percentage of tax dollars that ultimately come back to Boone County . Once this goal is met, we can invest in our infrastructure, thereby further stimulating Boone County and Northern Kentucky economic development. Such growth will invariably benefit the state as a whole. If we as citizens of Boone County must pay taxes, then we must get our fair share back. I am committed to keeping Boone County on Frankfort 's radar screen and fighting to right this economic inequity.
