Bill Johnson is the Republican candidate for Kentucky Secretary of State. Today WFPL’s political editor Phillip Bailey and moderator Rick Howlett spent 30 minutes interviewing him on air and taking listener calls.
Johnson lives with his wife and two children in Todd County, Kentucky. He is an airframe and power plant aircraft mechanic with over 25 years of aviation experience, and has been a pilot since 1984.
Some of the issues discussed in the interview are election integrity, voter fraud, voting rights for convicted felons and the homeless, and streamlining procedures for starting businesses in the Commonwealth. The full interview can be streamed below.
