FLORENCE, Kentucky – John T. Kemper, III, 2011 Republican Nominee for Kentucky State Auditor, endorsed Thomas Massie for Congress in Kentucky’s 4th District. The following is a statement issued by Mr. Kemper:
I met newly elected Lewis County Judge Executive Thomas Massie on a trip through the counties of Northeastern Kentucky during my campaign for State Auditor in the early spring of 2011. In that first meeting we shared our political views on the constitutional role of smaller government in the lives of those it was designed to serve. We also shared our views on fiscal responsibility of those elected to represent us and the power of the free markets to lift ALL people when government removes obstacles to economic growth rather than create them. I left that meeting intrigued about the potential for Lewis County and Judge Thomas Massie.
Over the next 16 months I had many opportunities to interact with and observe Judge Massie’s fight for the principles we shared in that first meeting. I am happy to say as an elected official Thomas Massie continues to live out his principles. It is for this reason I am proud to support and endorse Thomas Massie for Congress to represent the best interests of not only the 4th Congressional District, but all of the great Commonwealth of Kentucky. I am excited, energized and optimistic about the future of Kentucky with Thomas Massie representing our Kentucky values in Washington, D.C.
