Oleka Will Fight Woke ESG

As State Treasurer, I will fight for Kentucky values and Kentucky industries. One industry under attack is coal. 

Many Kentucky families who work in the coal mines have seen their families rise out of poverty and live the American Dream because coal gave them a chance to work. My family also lived the American Dream when my parents came here from Nigeria with nothing and worked hard to make ends meet. They earned a living, bought a house, and put me and my sisters through college and changed our lives. We went from poverty to prosperity in a single generation. It’s the American Dream. I’m fighting to preserve and protect the American Dream and the jobs, values, and policies that make this country the greatest country in the history of the world. 

Producing energy and mining coal is dignified, tough, high-skilled work. I’ve seen that firsthand as I’ve toured coal mines in Hazard, KY. Woke corporate elites are trying to destroy coal jobs and Kentucky’s energy economy through their leftist ideology of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG). ESG puts woke policy agendas ahead of taxpayers and Kentucky energy jobs. As Treasurer I’ll fight back against big banks and big government trying to destroy a key industry. I have the experience to do this, as I served on the board for the State Financial Officers Foundation (SFOF) that effectively wrote the playbook on how State Treasurers can push back. 

I am the only experienced conservative candidate in this race who can beat the big banks and big government while working to preserve the American Dream for all Kentuckians.
