10/26/2015 08:58 PM

Republican candidate for treasurer Allison Ball went on the air with two ads on Monday one focused statewide and the other targeting eastern Kentucky voters.

Ball, a Prestonsburg bankruptcy attorney, is running a statewide introductory ad titled: “Get to Work” which focuses on introducing her and her plan for more transparency and fiscal conservatism in Frankfort.

At the same time Ball has launched a second campaign ad titled: “Raised in the Mountains,” which is airing in Eastern Kentucky and features Ball her family roots in the region.

“My family has been in Floyd County for nine generations, so I understand Kentucky. I believe in Kentucky,” Ball said. “I also have a financial background which I think is important for the Office of Treasurer.”

“I’m excited to introduce myself to voters and share the vision I have for the Treasurer’s Office in Kentucky,” Ball said in a press release. “The Treasurer is the Chief Financial Officer of the state, directly accountable to the voters, and I think the Treasurer’s Office can offer a lot more than a rubber stamp. I’m running for Treasurer to be a true watchdog for the taxpayers of Kentucky and to do what I can to help address the challenges we face as a Commonwealth.”

The ads from Ball began running on Monday and will continue through the end of the election on 12 broadcast networks in Lexington, Louisville, Hazard, Paducah and Bowling Green and on cable in Northern Kentucky and Evansville, according to the campaign.

Ball faces Democratic state Rep. Rick Nelson in the Nov. 3 election.
