Henderson, Ky. (July 20, 2023) – Lt. Governor Nominee and State Senator Robby Mills released the following statement in response to news reports that Governor Beshear’s Team Kentucky Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund would be audited by state authorities:
“As a state senator who represents Dawson Springs, I still talk to people today who didn’t get a relief check from Governor Beshear’s Team Kentucky Fund,” said State Senator and Lt. Governor nominee Robby Mills (R-Henderson). “Sending an unknown amount of private money raised for tornado victims to the wrong people is just wrong. It’s just wrong. His administration provided unsatisfactory answers in committee in June about their relief efforts. Kentuckians deserve better.
“I was proud to carry a bipartisan bill to rebuild western Kentucky from the December 2021 tornadoes, which has resulted in real progress for west and western Kentucky.
“Whether it is the unemployment system, the Department of Juvenile Justice, or his Team Kentucky fund, Andy Beshear just isn’t up to the job. A Cameron-Mills Administration is.”
