My name is T.K. Broecker and I am running for the Kentucky State House of Representatives — District 47.  I live in LaGrange Kentucky with my wife, Shari, and daughter, Mary Elizabeth.  I grew up on a farm here in Oldham County, and returned after college and a few years working in Greenville, South Carolina.

I am the owner/operator of MotoPhoto and Fulltone Photo Lab.  MotoPhoto has two retail stores in the Louisville Area. It is a photo studio and lab where producing the best prints is our top priority.  My latest acquisition, Fulltone, specializes in developing 35 mm film while embracing the latest in digital technology.

My decision to run for office was influenced by many things, not the least of which was watching the news every night. While I sometimes hate to admit it, one movie influenced me greatly in my decision to run for office.  A line in the movie “National Treasure” speaks to the heart of my campaign.  “If there is something wrong, those who have the ability to take action have the responsibility to take action.”

After much soul searching, I feel that I have a duty to take that action and make Kentucky a better place to live.
