Kentucky Democratic Party's Statement on Bevin's Continued Refusal to Release Tax Returns

FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 28, 2017) – Today the Kentucky Democratic Party released the following statement in response to Gov. Matt Bevin’s continued refusal to release his tax returns.

“Gov. Bevin is breaking years of tradition and transparency by refusing to release his tax returns,” said Kentucky Democratic Chairwoman Sannie Overly. “The fact that Gov. Bevin has declared that he will never release his tax returns undermines the trust the people of Kentucky placed in his administration. The citizens of our great Commonwealth deserve nothing less than a leader who shows his primary interest is in serving Kentucky and not himself. Preserving the integrity of our Commonwealth through transparency is a bipartisan issue; that’s why I join those from both political parties by requesting -- again -- that Gov. Bevin release his tax returns.”


The Kentucky Democratic Party is comprised of more than 1.68 million registered Democrats who support issues that enhance the fair treatment of all Kentuckians. Visit for more information.
