Carroll Announces Re-Election Plans

Danny Carroll

Local state Senator Danny Carroll announced his plan to run for re-election with more than 100 supporters present at the home of Dr Kyle and Nicole Turnbow.

Carroll said “We laid some great foundations” during his first three years in the Kentucky legislature.

US Representative James Comer was present and said “I’ve come to support my friend Danny Carroll. He hit the found running, has represented Paducah very well and deserves to the re-elected.”

Carroll was elected in 2014, replacing outgoing state Senator Bob Leeper who ran for McCracken County Judge Executive.

“Pension and tax reform are the gorillas in the room,” Carroll said. “I’ve immersed myself in tax and pension issues, and last week I met with a group of local CPAs to learn more about taxes.” adding “We’ll have to get our pension system more in line with the private sector. We need a sustainable balance.”
