Lally1Thirty-eight year old Todd Lally has joined the Republican primary in the third district Congressional race.

The Louisville native announced his candidacy Friday afternoon in Tyler Park. The conservative Lally told his supporters he’ll fight for smaller government.

“We want a government that will provide us with the basics.,” said Lally. “We want infrastructure and we want security, and then we, the people, will fuel that economic stimulus.”

Lally said he’s eager to debate the issues with Congressman John Yarmuth, who currently holds the seat.

“We’re going to get into that cap-and-trade policy that hurts Kentucky,” said Lally. “We’re going to get into this health care thing. We’re going to ask him why he voted certain ways on certain things, we’re going to ask him why we still don’t have a bridge in Jefferson County, and no longer is being able to blame is on Bush going to be satisfactory to us.”

Lally is an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel. He’s served 21-years and is a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is also a UPS pilot.

In politics, Lally has served on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Republican Party.

So far, he’ll face Republican Marilyn Parker in the primary.

Mr. Lally,

Thank you for your service in the US Armed Forces. I am looking forward to hearing your ideas for Kentucky ‘s third district. I believe John Yarmuth has been harmful to Kentucky and all Americans with his vote on healthcare. I believe he has served at the pleasure of himself and has ignored the voters.
Thank you for making the decision to run and give Kentuckians another choice. God Bless and Good Luck.
Claudia H. Leavitt
3rd district voter
