Phil Moffett, managing partner of CCS Partners and founder of School Choice Scholarships, Inc., has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) in Kentucky’s gubernatorial race.  The Pledge is a commitment to constituents to “oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

To date, thirty-two members of the  legislature have signed the Pledge.  Additionally, nine governors and nearly 1,100 state legislators across the country have signed the Pledge.

“Kentucky taxpayers need leaders committed to fiscal responsibility and pro-growth economic policies,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.  “By signing the Pledge, Phil Moffett demonstrates that he understands the problems of hard-working taxpayers nationwide, but especially the taxpayers of Kentucky.”

ATR encourages candidates who have not signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to make this commitment to taxpayers.  To see a list of candidates who have signed the Pledge, visit

“I applaud Phil for his leadership and dedication to the ideals of limited government, and for putting taxpayers’ wallets ahead of government coffers,” added Norquist.
