Remember in May and November… A Year Later

Education, Politics

This has been a wild set of days in April. From the protests in WV, OK, and AZ, to the ones we held here in KY, I feel exhausted and we still have 30days of school, some districts have almost 40 because of weather days. However, Tom Eben at the Herald-Leader made a good point in his OpEd “What’s Next?” What will KEA and the Ky state worker pensions groups do next to motivate voters? It is obvious that if the election for Governor were held last April, Bevin would be an easy target, but he is one man and one office. What is it that can be done to reshape the political dynamics and create a new landscape for voters to getting excited about?
