A Strong Voice for Eastern Kentucky

My name is Scott Sykes and I’m running for Congress in Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District. I decided to run because I believe that Eastern Kentucky should have a choice. There are two paths we can take: one is to do nothing and wait for things to happen; the other is to take action and work together to make Eastern Kentucky a stronger, more secure, and more prosperous region to call home. I prefer the path of action, which is why I am asking for your vote on May 22nd.


I believe we have the moral responsibility to elect leaders who understand the struggles we have as citizens, the issues we face as a region, and the worries we have as a country.  For too long, the citizens of Eastern Kentucky have been held captive by political elites who have provided nothing but empty promises and broken government. As your next congressman, I will commit myself to the citizens that live up and down the creeks and hollers of Eastern Kentucky, not the political power brokers that have held our region hostage for the past 40 years.

I have worked tirelessly on strengthening our communities and improving our quality of life. If  you know me, then you know how passionate I am about making our home of Eastern Kentucky a better place to live, work, play, and raise a family. This is why I want to be your next congressman.

I am proposing a plan that will strengthen our communities and support our working families. There are four basic truths to my campaign:

  • Every Kentuckian deserves a safe workplace that values them as an employee and allows them to hold their head up high and take pride in their work.
  • Every Kentuckian deserves a good job that pays them their worth, allows them to pay their bills, and puts some money in the bank so they can retire at a decent age.
  • Every Kentuckian wants to see a better, more secure future for their children with great job opportunities and strong schools.
  • Every Kentuckian deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare to keep our communities healthy.

If you agree with me that Eastern Kentucky deserves new leadership, I ask for you to join me in this “Fight for the 5th”!  Let’s work together to make Eastern Kentucky a stronger, more secure, and more prosperous region to call home. We need your help in making things right. We are asking for a fair shake and a fair opportunity for a better future.

I am Scott Sykes. I ask for your vote on May 22nd so that we can continue the fight through November 6th.
