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.

Most of us, me included, never think much about the judges in an election. However, since Beshear morphed from governor to King, trust me, ALL of us freedom lovers are paying very close attention.

Samuel T. Wright III was defeated in the primary 2020. The two contenders for his seat are Robert Conley (a conservative) and Chris Harris (Democrat, currently serving in the KY House).

This is my district, I’m voting for Conley, here’s why:

Conley says: “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.
