Williams’ Appointment Will Likely Mean Gambling Push During Next Session

David Williams, a staunch opponent of expanding gambling in Kentucky, has resigned his Senate seat and his leadership position as president of the Senate to accept an appointment as a circuit court judge.

According to story by WFPL, Kentucky Family Foundation policy analyst Martin Cothran believes Williams’ appointment by Gov. Steve Breshear was politically motivated. Williams has been a staunch opponent of expanding gambling in Kentucky, while Breshear is pushing for gambling expansion.

“This is an attempt by the governor to decapitate the opposition to his expanded gambling agenda in the General Assembly,” Cothran said.

In light of this, what can you do to oppose the expansion of gambling in Kentucky?

Next Tuesday, voters will have the opportunity to vote for candidates that oppose the expansion of gambling.  Find your local candidates and their position on expanded gambling and other issues on this site.
