  • One size does not fit all

    I always know spring is here and summer is coming because suddenly everyone starts panicking about being “summer body” ready. Suddenly everyone wants to shed a couple pounds and tone up for the summer. Me, too. Sometimes, I find myself comparing my body to other women before I even realize what is happening, and when I finally realize it, I feel pretty lousy.

    While many in Frankfort and the media focused on a select few issues this session, there were many other successes of the General Assembly in 2018.

    This past week, the legislature overrode the governor’s vetoes of a pro-education budget and comprehensive tax reform. I was proud of these measures, which placed a high priority on providing record funding to our pension systems, increasing per-pupil education funding, and allowing working Kentuckians to keep more of their take-home pay.
