AFV & PAC organization information not easy to find

Finding out who is who in Adair Family Values (AFV) or PAC is difficult. What CM can find as of this point, is what has already been posted on CM: That Shannon Sexton is chair of PAC. We appreciate her candor on that point. Mike Ellis' name is listed with Adair Family values? An some early financial numbers are online for both groups. Or reliably report other officers in either organization? What about: Money they are raising? Sources? Does anyone else think this information is important? Courteous comments are welcome

At this point, the public seems to know the name of only the chair in either Progress in Adair County (PAC), and only the name of Adair Family Values. (Previously, we had posted that the material is available at the County Court Clerk's office, but Clerk Lisa Greer said that, because the Clerk's office only has a facsimile, she has received legal advice that the clerk's office cannot make prints of the document.)

Shannon Sexton has written several commentaries on the upcoming Wet/Dry vote to be voted March 22, 2016 in Adair County as chair of PAC.

So far, no one from the Adair Family Values has written as the Chair of that organization.

It would seem a simple matter for both groups to state the names of their organizers, the funds they have raised and spent, and from whom. I'd like to know.

It is true that the legal papers are filed at the Adair County Clerk's office, which are the same papers filed with the Secretary of State's office in Frankfort, KY.

The information is available at no cost online, but getting there is difficult. Here are the best instructions we've been able to find:
"For the Finance reports of committees: Kentucky Registry of Election Finance,, on left bottom (searchable online database), on next screen on left (other searches), next screen organization, next screen (type in name of organization, use drop down arrow on right to choose Issue Committee, this will give you a report of receipts and expenditures of committees."

And a note: The online reports are so sketchy I didn't find them very useful. - Ed Waggener
