Kentucky Club for Growth Comrade of the Month Award
For a few months now, the national Club for Growth has awarded a "Comrade of the Month" award "to the person who best lives up to the policies of big-government redistribution and restrictions on economic freedom."
Past award winners include:
THE COMRADE HALL OF SHAME
Apr. 2009 - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Mar. 2009 - President Barack Obama
Feb. 2009 - Senators Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, & Susan Collins
Jan. 2009 - Rep. Barney Frank

We like this idea, and think we should institute it in Kentucky.
Each month, we'll take nominations from members, and put them to a members' vote at the end of the month.
Nominees can be public officials or really anyone who is advancing the kind of anti-growth policy that is keeping Kentucky in poverty and making our commonwealth an unattractive place for economic growth. Since we are the Kentucky Club for Growth, we'll focus on Kentucky officials and actions by them that affect Kentucky specifically.
So, throughout June, especially in these middle weeks, keep an eye on the goings-on in your city, in Frankfort, and throughout the state, and send us examples of people and policy standing in the way of prosperity.
We're eager to hear from you!
