Kevin Sell (R-Alexandria) announced the following endorsements of his candidacy for Campbell County Judge-Executive:
Former U. S. Congressman Geoff Davis
Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer
Kentucky Senator John Schickel
Kentucky Senator Chris McDaniel
Kentucky Representative Brian Linder
Silver Grove Mayor Neal Bedel
Cold Spring Mayor Mark Stoeber
In a separate release, Sell commented on the inability of the Kentucky House of Representateives to pass Senate Bill 5 on heroin:
“The failure of the General Assembly to pass a legislative package to combat the heroin epidemic is a disaster for Northern Kentucky.
“Our current county Judge-Executive spent this legislative session lobbying for an additional sales tax proposed by Louisville special interests and organizing an effort urging the Governor to veto a bill that would protect Northern Kentuckians from tolls. He should have instead taken on a leadership role in advocating for this heroin legislation, a scourge that is getting worse by the day.
“As your next Judge-Executive, I will stop the games and make fighting this heroin epidemic my Day One priority. My established four point plan involving prevention, legislation, enforcement, and treatment will be the starting point and I will not stop advocating for these needed policies until they are implemented by our state and county leadership.”
