There is ONE WAY to hold Kentucky’s Supreme Court accountable to the Constitution: vote them in or out. There are SEVEN (7) of them, they are elected BY DISTRICT in a non-partisan election. We need to take action now.
2022: FOUR (4) SCOKY Judges up for Re-Election
Districts 1, 2, 4 & 6 are up for grabs. NOW is the time to identify who will run against them.
Lobby Ky’s Supreme Court Justices
They are elected, they will respond to pressure! We DON’T want our SCOKY justices voting along party lines, we want them voting along constitutional lines.
You can email or snail mail. Far better to write to them snail mail… yes, they can trash them but they at least have to TOUCH them first. An email can be deleted and you aren’t able to write directly to a specific justice at a specific email address. Just a thought!

Know Before You Vote
- Know WHO your judge is (find out below)
- Know WHEN s/he is up for election (also below). Put the name and election date in your calendar.
- Know HOW S/HE VOTED: constitutional or along party lines? What we know for sure is that ALL of them voted to allow Beshear to continue his reign of terror!!! (Except Conley District #7, he wasn’t on the court yet.)
- Know WHO IS RUNNING AGAINST your justice and how liberty-minded they are. Better still, FIND SOMEONE TO RUN AGAINST your justice!!!

“I have served as a trial judge for 25 plus years in Eastern Kentucky. For the past 13 years, I have served as a Circuit Court Judge while also running a specialty Drug Court. Prior to being elected to the Circuit Court, I served 12 years as a District Court Judge. I believe that every life has value and every person matters. My Christian, Conservative values guide my life.“
It grieves all of us to know that the governor has overstepped his authority. Our representatives need checks and balances. Our public school’s administrative leaders also need accountability. Good teachers are being whipped into submission by political leaders to empower this unbalanced governor. When our Kentucky legislature can again hold him accountable, balance will be restored in Frankfort. Thank you for publishing the information about Kentucky’s justices. Praying in Lexington for freedom once again for all Kentuckians.
Me, too, thank you!!!
thanks for putting this together sally! just emailed to the general email tonight!
You are welcome, my pleasure to get these judges in line!
Thank you for the information and I will be looking up my judge (VanMeter)
You are welcome!!!
Our state is in a very bad way, the things Brashear has done are hurting people more than the covid19. Small business have a little chance of keeping their head above ground. Our US constitution to keep government from becoming dictators, which is where Brashear is. I am an adult who knows what I need to do to take care of myself and my family. My grandchildren need their friends and teachers, mental and emotional health needs to be in this too, especially where our children are concerned. When he made the first mandates, I thought he was doing good but after 2 weeks and he kept on without consulting with the legislature, I was convinced it is a power trip and he still hasn’t consulted with them.
It has been such a devastation, thank you for paying attention and speaking out! !
Stop the shut down… This is not what we need a governor for! People have the freedom to choose what they do and don’t want to do. If somebody wants to patron a business and/or somebody wants to open their business to the public, individuals have the right to choose. We do not need a governor for permission. There are many things that people choose to do and are willing to take whatever risks they believe there are to be. I don’t ride motorcycles because I don’t want to take the risk of getting injured; however, I would never expect anybody to decide that for someone else. I don’t buy $1 million house because I don’t want the mortgage. You tell us we’re all in this together, but when somebody helps me pay that million dollar mortgage, then I’ll see that we are all in this together. Nobody else is responsible for my decision to take on $1 million mortgage. Others aren’t expected to be in that with me… We’re not in this together. Stop governor Beshear’s ideology of telling us what we can and can’t do concerning the “apparent“ Covid risk we are taking when we leave our homes or are in public. I would not want anybody to be uncomfortable and be forced to be out in public. Nor would I want someone who is comfortable in public to be forced in isolation.
I don’t like riding with my wife in the car because she drives too slow; however, she says that it makes her uncomfortable to drive any faster. My response is for her to drive at whatever speed makes her comfortable. People have the freedom and the right to stay home or not to stay home. We don’t need the governor taking it upon himself to let us now how many months he thinks it’s “safe”…as part of his job description.
I’m with you!
Stop the shutdown!!! The governor is out of bounds.
