Angie Hatton has been the state representative for the 94th district of Kentucky for the past eight months. She ran for office because she was concerned about the area in which she loves so dearly. Hatton sees a beautiful area that is made of resilient, hardworking and friendly people. However, she noticed a deteriorating Eastern Kentucky because of drugs, poverty and economic issues. She knew something had to be done. Hatton’s goal in office is to assure that Eastern Kentucky is not being ignored by the state government. She said that she would make sure of this by decreasing the drug issues, improve overall health, bring back employment opportunities, and educate the people to compete with other areas. In the first eight months of her term, Angie Hatton has fought for Eastern Kentucky and will continue to do so throughout her time in office.
