About your next Congressman - Seth Hall
I was born into a hard-working farm family that had worked the land in Henry and Shelby counties for generations. My father worked full-time at the Indiana Ammunition plant and as a farmer. My mother worked at the local bank in Pleasureville. My grandfather, grandmother, and uncle worked at GE and were proud members of the union. I was raised with an appreciation for hard work, community, and a sense of pride that anyone can make it in America
I was at Henry County High School during the era of the desegregation of Louisville's public schools. As a student, I was the Band Field Commander and FBLA Chapter President. I worked with my classmates to create an environment of inclusion and pride for the school.
Through my family, my work on the farm, and my friendships at Henry County High School, I was drawn to studying government at the University of Kentucky and later law at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville. Public service seemed to be the best way to continue to fight for justice as I had done during my years at Henry County High School.
It was during my college years that I also found a love for politics and organizing. Through volunteering – campus affairs at UK, a statewide campaign to elect Kentucky's first woman governor, Martha Layne Collins, and Kentucky Young Democrats, I saw first-hand the power of ordinary people to run and win political office in order to make a real difference in the lives of their constituents. I saw government as a source of good and that "we the people" can run a government of, by, and for the people as was intended by our Founding Fathers.
After law school, I went on and found employment in the healthcare industry working for health insurance and provider organizations. One highlight was creating 1-800 Medicare mandated from the balanced budget act of 1998. Our national team worked hard to create a customer service department that handled millions of senior calls every year.
Recently, I have been disturbed by a sense that our elected politicians, especially Thomas Massie, are not working for the people of Kentucky's 4th Congressional District. They are working more for themselves and their billionaire friends trying to reshape America into a nation of divided groups so they can take from hard-working Americans their pensions, wages, National Treasures, Medicare, Social Security and ultimately our faith in this great nation.
It is time for good people stand up and say, "No more division." We will unite as a nation to embrace our diversity, embrace our National Parks, embrace our clean water and air. We can and will take care of those in need. We will make America great again by investing in our children's public schools, teachers, and higher education. Our seniors should be allowed to retire with honor and respect and not be forced to work in their final years.
We have serious issues facing our nation today, and we need serious people elected to office to tackle those issues. My background has brought me to this point with a sense of urgency, a feeling that I can no longer sit on the sidelines. I have a calling to serve this great nation so it remains a beacon of light for the world and its citizens.
I respectfully ask for your vote on November 6 to help me do just that.
