Job recruitment is a task for state, not McConnell

By MAREDITH MORRIS Paducah

EDITOR:

While watching the 10 o'clock news on WPSD last evening, I again saw an ad aimed at Sen. Mitch McConnell. In the ad, someone is showing a group of people a newspaper article stating that Sen. McConnell says that it is "not his job" to bring economic development to Kentucky. Everyone acts shocked with exclamations of "Well, it SHOULD be his job!"

Last I checked, Mitch McConnell is a United States senator. He represents the interests of our state on a federal level. While he can be instrumental in opening doors to economic development, it is not his job to bring jobs to Kentucky.

It is the responsibility of our state government to make policies that will make Kentucky attractive to those who could/would bring business and therefore jobs here. Instead, the powers that be have made our state much less attractive to businesses. Our corporate tax structure comes to mind.

As the Kentucky Secretary of State, what has Alison Lundergan Grimes done to attract jobs to Kentucky? The next time you go pointing your finger at someone else, take a good look at your pointing hand. You'll see three fingers pointing back at yourself.
