FRANKFORT, KY - Today Jeb Bush ...

FRANKFORT, KY - Today Jeb Bush will apparently become the latest high-profile Republican candidate to release his tax returns - while Matt Bevin is continuing to break with Kentucky's bipartisan tradition of disclosure by refusing to release his taxes.
...
"Matt Bevin should listen to Republican leaders like Bush who are urging transparency and accountability and finally release his tax returns," said Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Hughes.
...
By stubbornly hiding this information from Kentucky voters, Bevin is only continuing to prove that he cannot be trusted to serve as our governor - and why Republicans have labelled him an 'East Coast Con Man' and a 'Pathological Liar.'" In the 20 days since Bevin refused to release his returns, he's faced a series of escalating scandals surrounding his finances: The AP reported that Bevin failed to disclose controversial companies on required state documents in a "possible ethics violation," WAVE 3 NBC Louisville revealed that Bevin has failed to pay his taxes on time at least 10 times, and the Courier Journal detailed Bevin's ownership of a Common Core company, despite his opposition to Common Core during his campaign. BACKGROUND: CN2: When Asked If He Would Release His Tax Returns As A Gubernatorial Candidate, Matt Bevin Refused. "'No,' said Bevin, who last year held interests worth either more than $10,000 or at least 5 percent in seven businesses specializing in products such as LED lights, candy and medical devices according to his financial disclosure form filed with the Executive Branch Ethics Commission. 'Why? Why would I?' When Pure Politics told Bevin others, such as Gov. Steve Beshear, released such records as candidates, he said he sees no value 'whatsoever' in publicizing his tax returns as a gubernatorial hopeful. [CN2, 6/10/15] AP Headline: "Bevin Didn't Disclose Positions, A Possible Ethics Violation. "Matt Bevin did not disclose his positions with two companies on his financial disclosure statement, a possible violation of state ethics laws. Bevin is the president of Bevin Bros. Manufacturing in Connecticut and a 'member, manager or other authorized person' with Academic Merit in Maine, according to records filed with the secretary of state's offices in those two states. Bevin disclosed both positions in his 2014 run for the U.S. Senate.
...
"Matt Bevin has been late to pay property taxes on land he owns in other states at least 10 times since 2002, documents indicate. Local officials in Greenwood, Maine and Leesville, Louisiana provided the documents at the request of WAVE 3 News. Combined, they show Bevin paid more than $1,100 in interest and penalties to settle property tax bills. Bevin disputed the numbers but did not provide an explanation for what the Maine and Louisiana officials provided. [WAVE 3 NBC, 6/19/15]

The resumption of bellmaking, announced ...

The resumption of bellmaking, announced with fanfare Wednesday by Matthew Bevin, the sixth-generation owner of Bevin Bros., was welcomed by many in Belltown USA, as this town of 13,000 people 20 miles from Hartford has long called itself.
...
Matthew Bevin, a 45-year-old businessman who fondly recalls putting "tongues" on bells as a child and now lives in Louisville, Ky., has vowed to build a new factory to replace the one destroyed by fire during a lightning storm May 27.
He said he is doing it for the employees and the town, and was inspired by his ancestors, who managed to keep the company afloat through technological change, the Depression and cheap oversees competition.
"We're fortunately wired not to quit," he said.
...
And the USS Maine, destroyed by an explosion in 1898 that triggered the Spanish-American War, had a bell made by Bevin.
The company also boasts of making the little bell in the beloved 1946 Jimmy Stewart movie "It's a Wonderful Life."
Workers at Bevin Bros. feed massive coils of brass and steel into presses, which stamp out the bells using heavy dies that were recovered from the ruins of the burned-down factory and refurbished.
Bevin said he has spent several hundred thousand dollars on getting the temporary factory running and has no estimate of how much the new one will cost or when it will be ready.
He said he had no fire insurance on the old building, which he had just finished renovating before the blaze, but has received some insurance proceeds against a work stoppage, as well as a state matching grant.
Since the fire, residents have brought bells that have been in their families for years to show Bevin, urging him to keep the company going.
"I've seen glimpses of what it means to them," he said.
"I don't know why I took ...

"I don't know why I took this on," Matt says jokingly. The factory is just one more responsibility on his already-full plate. Only 43 years old, Matt is the president, chief investor, or a board member of 10 companies scattered around the country. If you ask him to name them all, he has to stop and think about it. His primary business is an investment-management firm in Kentucky that handles $2.7 billion of other people's money. So, yes, Matt understands exactly how bad an investment a bell company is.
"If you were to start a manufacturing business, you probably wouldn't start it in America. If you did, you certainly wouldn't start it in Connecticut," he explains.
...
Still, it's important to Matt that the story here doesn't play out the same way it has everywhere else. He didn't come to East Hampton just to make bells; he came to make a statement.
"To me, this is a testament to perseverance," he says. "This is a testament to proving that you can still manufacture and exist in America."
Matt Bevin grew up to the sound of bells; he spent childhood vacations visiting his grandmother in East Hampton. Her parlor was like a showroom: Sleigh bells hung from the walls on worn leather straps, and handbells of all kinds were neatly arranged on shelves and tables. From his grandmother's home, Matt would make the short trip down the hill to the factory, and, when he wasn't busy sliding down the delivery chute, he'd help install tongues in the bells. The passion stuck with him, and he's become a collector and connoisseur in his own right. He even claims to be able to spot a Chinese-made call bell from 10 paces: "It's never quite straight."
