Melinda Gibbons Prunty is running for State Rep in the 15th District of the KY House. The district includes all of Muhlenberg County as well as portions of Hopkins County (Madisonville). She is pro-coal, pro-1st & 2nd Amendments, pro-adoption law reform but was primarily motivated to run because of being pro-life. Her opponent is a 20 year incumbent whom she had tried over many years to encourage to stand up for life, however, he continues to stand with Stumbo and the House Democratic leadership; he doesn't want to "sit the bench". She believes that some things are bigger than party and if we don't get our moral house in order, what are we leaving our grandchildren. Even though you may not live in the 15th District, if you would want to support her efforts, please consider going to her Facebook Page and making a donation via Paypal or sending to "Prunty for State Rep", 105 S. Cherry St., Greenville, KY 42345. There are rules re: donating and information that needs to be gathered including occupation and employer if still employed. You can e-mail her at melindagibbonsprunty@gmail.com for further information or questions. Thank you in advance for your support!! Prayers are most appreciated!!
