‘Values Democrat’ Running for Kentucky Governor
Jonathan Miller, who spoke last month in Cincinnati, has announced he is running for governor of Kentucky. Miller, serving his second term as state treasurer, is a Democrat. He appeared Nov. 8 at Hebrew Union College and discussed his book, The Compassionate Community.
“When we act in service to others, that’s when we’re acting in our most morally valuable way,” Miller said. “We owe special compassion to those in our society who are most vulnerable — our old, our very young, our poor, our disabled. As the prophets teach us in the Hebrew Bible, we can judge a society’s value in how it treats its (victimized).”
