Gary “Tony” McCurdy says he’s tired of Kentucky’s lawmakers looking at the small picture and wants to see a more proactive approach.
That led him to run against Ben Chandler in the 6th District U.S. Congress race in 2008.
“There wasn’t a Republican running against him, and I knew he could be beaten,” he said. “So I decided to run.”
Although he lost by 3 percent to Jon Larson in the primary, McCurdy, a conservative Republican, did get the itch to serve.
