Looking Back, Looking Ahead
It's been a dynamic first term for Morgan in the state Senate, solving Kentucky's problems. He's asking District 19 for another four years in which to turn more good ideas into real progress, with bold initiatives, hard work and bipartisan cooperation.
Appointed to Gov. Matt Bevin's criminal justice reform panel, Morgan will help fix a badly broken state system. He'll continue his push for tax reform, expanded gaming, state earned income tax credit, statewide fairness law and solar energy expansion. A member of the Kentucky Retirement System Funding Work Group as the 2016 session approached, he knows more funding will be needed to make our teachers' pensions secure. Named as a freshman to the powerful Appropriations & Revenue Committee and the Budget Review Subcommittee on Human Resources, he's well-placed to be a fiscal watchdog. He serves on the crucially important Medicaid Oversight & Advisory Committee - where he will fight to protect access to health care - as well as the Banking & Insurance Committee, State & Local Government Committee and the Elections, Constitutional Amendments & Intergovernmental Affairs Task Force.
With constituent service a top priority, Morgan makes himself personally available by email and cell phone and pays careful attention to input from District 19, which is full of robust and diverse neighborhoods with great people and great history, stretching from the Highlands to Crescent Hill, Audubon Park, St. Matthews, Hikes Point, Highview, Jeffersontown, Fern Creek and beyond. Morgan himself lives in the Strathmoor area with his wife, Chris, and their twins, Wilson and Clara.
