FRANKFORT – Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is calling on fellow elected officials, beginning with Kentucky constitutional officers and members of the General Assembly, to help restore trust in public institutions after a recent report on Kentucky’s civic health shows trust in media in the Commonwealth at an all-time low.
Grimes, the Commonwealth’s chief advocate for civic engagement, released the 2016 Kentucky Civic Health Index on Wednesday. The Index, which is available on the Secretary’s website at www.sos.ky.gov, measures the state of engagement and civic literacy in the Commonwealth.
