Patti is a professor at Western Kentucky University, where she teaches history. She serves as the secretary of the board of directors for the ACLU of Kentucky, and she has helped lead the charge toward a fairness ordinance in Bowling Green that guarantees a community free of discrimination of any kind for all constituents. Patti's primary issues in her campaign are working toward good-paying jobs for Bowling Green's constituents, expanding funding for education from elementary school all the way to higher education, and fighting for equity for all. She also supports a statewide amendment that adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the Kentucky Civil Rights Act and actively opposes any discriminatory legislation that targets immigrant families.
"Patti is an educator, so she understands why Kentucky needs to fix the way it treats its public employees. She has dedicated her life to the study of oppressed groups and oppressive governments throughout history, so she has the knowledge to make the choices that protect people. She has been a leader of the Fairness movement in Bowling Green and statewide, so she knows how to build coalitions and work with business and community leaders to fight for progress." –Murphy from Bowling Green
