In his fourth interview, McBrayer (House 1966-70, 76th district; 1971-1972, 98th district; Democrat) begins by continuing the thread of discussion with work ethic and welfare, tying it in to his own early law experiences. He also discusses his love of outdoor recreation, and wildlife regulations before the topic swings back to the legislature. Issues include environmentalism, rising fuel costs, problems in the Fletcher administration, the drain of young people from Eastern Kentucky, serving in leadership positions as a young legislator, and political aspirations after stepping down from the legislature. The interview concludes with McBrayer's account of serving as chair of the Democratic Party during Patton's candidacy, serving as Bill Clinton's authorized representative in Kentucky during both election campaigns, Hillary Clinton's run for the presidency, and advice to future legislators. Part 4 of 4.
