Today I announced that as Auditor, I will conduct special audits of the state economic incentive packages. With the loss of jobs across Kentucky like Briggs & Stratton in Murray, Trane in Lexington and Blackjewel in Harlan, we have to take a closer look at how tax dollars are spent. Taxpayers money is invested, and we have to make sure that it’s being spent wisely and not being wasted.
All the shenanigans surrounding Braidy is the prime example of why Kentucky families are losing faith in government. We need transparency and accountability to renew people’s faith in government.
