Notes from Bruce
Wow – what a week! The Repubs took down more Dems in Frankfort (due to gerrymandering), but nationally the “Red Wave” turned into the Red Washout. Democrats still control the Senate, and could even wind up holding on to the House – the best midterm results for a president’s party in a long, long time.
New ForwardKY shows
Here are ForwardKY, we’ve been busy as well. We’ve restarted two shows, and for each one you can listen to the podcast, OR watch the video, OR read the text:
- Moving Kentucky Forward – A weekly interview show with electeds, activists, and experts
- The State of Kentucky – A commentary show that starts as an article on the site, then is recorded as a video and a podcast
The latest episode of each will be posted on the site as a story (see the list below), but also has its own page on our Media home page. If you’re into podcasts or videos or both, subscribe to our podcasts and to our YouTube channel.
KYGA is only 50 days away
The 2023 session of the KY General Assembly is only 50 days away, but we’re already getting ready. The Bill Tracker feature will be back, as well as the morning update on what happened the day before. You need to be at the Patron level ($5 a month) to use the Bill Tracker, and at the Partner level ($9 a month) to get the daily update. So, if you want those and you are currently at the Friend level, you need to consider upgrading your membership before January. Just click the profile button in the lower right after you have logged in.
Do you need a stories list more than once a week?
As part of this weekly newsletter, we list all the stories that were published that week. Some members have expressed interest in getting either a daily email or a MWF email that would be simply a list of stories, so they wouldn’t have to remember to check the site to see what was new. If you are interested in this, let me know. I’m glad to take the time to do it IF there is enough interest. (I’d say at least 30 people.) Just hit Reply and let me know.
That’s all the updates for this week. On to the stories lists!
