We're just days away from electing a governor in Kentucky.
Hazard native and democratic candidate for Lt. Governor, Doctor Daniel Mongiardo stopped by the WYMT studios to emphasize why he thinks he and Steve Beshear are the best team.
“The people of Kentucky are searching for leadership they can be proud of,” Mongiardo said.
With Steve Beshear's law and banking sense combined with Doctor Daniel Mongiardo's healthcare and tourism knowledge, Mongiardo says he and Steve Beshear make up the leadership Kentucky needs.
“Won't it be great to have a governor and lt. governor that get along?” Mongiardo said.
Casino gambling has been the forefront of Gov. Fletcher's campaign against Beshear and Mongiardo, but the senator says they simply want to give Kentuckians a vote to decide what they want...a vote that would have limitations.
One of the biggest items on the democratic ticket agenda is promoting one of eastern Kentucky's main resources, coal.
“It's time to stop apologizing for coal. Kentucky can lead the nation in clean coal technology,” Mongiardo said.
