Robert Goforth on Drugs
Project DARIS: combat drugs by educating students
After spending years going into schools across Kentucky to provide a free drug-education prevention program called Project DARIS to students across our state, the drug epidemic weighed so heavy on me that I decided to seek a public service opportunity
to be able to have a greater impact on policy. I ran for state representative and was elected to serve the people of the 89th House District in Jackson, and portions of Laurel and Madison counties.
Now, I'm running for governor because Kentucky deserves a choice. I will support our teachers and public education, fund public pensions, combat drugs, fix our infrastructure and help
Kentucky live up to its greatest potential. I humbly ask for your vote and support in the primary election.
