Incarceration comes at a high cost
Q: Kentucky has the ninth highest incarceration rate in the nation. Are you committed to ending mass incarceration in Kentucky? If elected, what will you do to make strides toward ending mass incarceration?
A: The cost of incarceration is staggering
both for our tax coffers and for society in general. I support a balanced approach that offers second chances to individuals deserving of those opportunities, but I am also mindful of the need to keep certain career criminals off the streets.
