We at The Future of Eastern Kentucky have started a petition to send to Frankfort and DC demanding them to bring jobs to Eastern, KY so each and every family has a fair chance to achieve a better living. We are poverty stricken from the impact of job loss here; we want a better life for families in this area. We ask each and every one of you to sign our petition and have your voice heard! The recent loss of jobs in the coal industry struck a devastating impact on each and every person in Appalachia. I have listened to many people say they are not affected by coal so why should they worry. What people don’t realize is every dollar that passes through this region has been in either a miner of someone who is related to the industries hand before ours. With the above being said we just want to clarify that our petition only deals with the coal industry as to bringing jobs in to replace the ones lost due to downfall of coal in Eastern Kentucky. We aren’t Anti anything, we are Pro People, Pro Jobs, and Pro Community. Our goal is to get both the Democrat and Republican Parties working together to bring back jobs to our great community we live in. We have KY Congress members, KY House of Representatives, and US Senate KY Representatives that are members of this group willing to listen to our ideas and concerns as well as share theirs. Please join our site and sign the petition if you haven't.
