Scott Promises New Ideas For Kentucky

Louisville Courier-Journal

Former Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Will T. Scott is promising some “out-of-the-box” thinking to deal with the Commonwealth’s problems.

The Pikeville Republican met with reporters in Louisville on Tuesday (Jan. 13) as he began his campaign for the GOP nomination for governor.       

The 67-year-old Scott resigned from the court two weeks ago so that he could enter the governor’s race.

“I’ve got these ideas in my pocket that I’ve got all these years, living this life in Kentucky, knowing the pain and problems that the families have, and I’m taking their solutions with me.” –Will T. Scott    

Scott has chosen former Menifee County Sheriff Rodney Coffey as his running mate and has endorsed expanding gambling as a way to raise money to meet Kentucky's public pension obligations.
