2015:Knipper predicted hacking & corruption. 2019:"Let's make it right"
"True leadership is the ability to identify a root problem and have the personal skills, courage and persistence to solve it!" -Jack Schiff, CEO and Chairman of Cincinnati Financial Corporation.
Ever notice how everyone who runs for office has a VISION?
That doesn't mean they have the skills, experience, or knowledge to be the next Secretary of State.
1. CLEAN UP THE VOTER ROLLS
In 2015, Steve was instrumental in devising a clean-up procedure for Ohio's Secretary of State, which has since passed constitutional scrutiny by the U.S. Supreme Court. That plan will be used to clean up KY's database, specifically addressing the problem with our 48 counties that have more registered voter than citizens. This process can begin on day one that Steve Knipper becomes the 77th Secretary of State. We can not afford the next Secretary of State to have on the job training!
2. GIVE DEFINITION to the Secretary of State's title: CHIEF BUSINESS OFFICER.
Steve has over 15 years experience working in Fortune 500 and Forbes 200 companies, and interacting daily with their CEO's, CFO's & CIO's. As a Project Management Professional, Steve has the applicable business acumen with the necessary technological skills to deliver secure, state-of-the-art service to businesses of any size, any where in the world.
As one of the Senior Managers within the Executive Branch, Steve's established contacts with Economic Development, Department of Local Government and various International consulate generals are within Kentucky's cutting edge fields of Aerospace, Aeronautics and Automobile manufacturing. Steve's skill set has been designed to match his goals he established when he first ran in 2015 and remain unmatched by an other candidate running for Secretary of State.
3. REDESIGN workflow and outdated processes to save time and money.
The Secretary of State has many administrative functions. Steve has 15 years experience and certified in Six Sigma process and workflow management. He has streamlined and automated many processes for Fortune 500 companies to improve effectiveness and efficiency. Steve will bring these necessary skills to this office.
When it's time for old-fashioned hard work, and you have to roll up your sleeves and apply state of the art ideas, the last person that comes to mind is an Attorney. We've had an Attorney in that role for the last 15 years . If an Attorney was the answer, Kentucky would not be the second worst state in voter rolls maintenance and one of the last to utilize modern economic development. If you want Kentucky to succeed it matters who the next Secretary of State is in 2019. "LET'S MAKE IT RIGHT!"

Someone with I.T. experience is ideally suited for the office. That technical skill, along with professional workflow process and years of business experience is what is needed to advance Kentucky.
Our current Secretary of State, along with the entire Board of Elections (including current candidate Mike Adams, for Secretary of State), required two whistleblowers- Democrat and Republican, followed by a national lawsuit to GET SOMETHING STARTED. Now, even that small start has been delayed as things go back to court. Steve showed he's a man of action and the best candidate by challenging Alison directly in 2015, and he will show the same strength as Secretary of State in 2019. Mike Adams sat on the sidelines in 2015 and when given the golden chance on the Board of Elections to clean up the rolls, he remained passive & low energy. Knipper's actions SPEAK LOUDER than current campaign rhetoric and slogans. Vote Knipper for Kentucky Secretary of State.
