The Kentucky Chamber Political Action Committee (PAC) has endorsed two candidates in the upcoming 2013 Special Election; Richard Moloney (I-Lexington) and Suzanne Miles (R-Owensboro).
Their selection for endorsement is based on their support for private enterprise and understanding of business issues, as well as answers to the Kentucky Chamber PAC’s 2013 Legislative Candidate Survey.
Moloney distinguished himself from his opponents by demonstrating support for specific issues through his answers to the candidate survey. Through his work with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council, Maloney has shown solid support for issues that enable job growth and economic development, which lead to a higher quality of life for the citizens of the 13th Senate District and the Commonwealth. Additionally, Moloney’s past public service as Commissioner of Kentucky's Housing Building and Construction has helped make Kentucky a more business friendly state.
Miles distinguished herself by demonstrating support for business-friendly policies supported by the Kentucky Chamber. Her support of public education, commonsense civil liability reforms and pro-growth economic development policies like right-to-work make her the pro-business candidate for the seventh legislative district. Through owning her own small business and her work with U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie’s office, Miles has a solid understanding of the issues that enable job growth and economic development, which lead to a higher quality of life for the citizens of the 7th district and the Commonwealth.
The Kentucky Chamber PAC is the independent political arm of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the largest non-partisan, broad-based business organization in Kentucky.
