Sturdivant, who calls himself a fiscal and social conservative, said he’s against the expansion of gambling, which he considers a tax to fund what he calls “Frankfort’s spending addiction.”
“I thought about running in 2008 and 2010, and decided against it … I didn’t think it was a good time for my family,” said Sturdivant. “I’m running in 2012 because I can no longer sit on the sidelines and see … what I consider to be bad policy coming out of Frankfort. I believe what we see in Frankfort is fiscal irresponsibility.”
Despite a professed belief in “less government intrusion,” Sturdivant says that if he’s elected, the first thing he will do is work to enact a bill that requires doctors to offer an ultrasound to pregnant women – something he says Tilley “has exercised no leadership on to get passed.” He added that the bill wouldn’t force the patient to view the ultrasound but would only force the physician to offer it.
