Fayette County Young Democrats Meeting

Attention All Young Democrats!  The Fayette County Young Democrats will be holding a meeting on Wednesday, February 10th to elect new officers.  The meeting starts at 6:30 at Fayette County Democrats Party Headquarters.  Along with electing new officers, we will be discussing the upcoming special election in the 62nd District.  Fayette County Democratic Party Chair, Clint Morris will explain ways to volunteer and the importance of this special election.
Offices that we need to fill are:
Vice President
Communications Director
College Director
High School DirectorWhat’s at stake?
Everything…From HEALTH CARE to WORKERS’ RIGHTS to FUNDING FOR HIGHER EDUCATION and the rights of women to MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICES. Losing the state house will mean that the Progress we made under the leadership of Gov. Steve Beshear will be erased in a heartbeat. It is critical that we work together to ensure we keep the house.

We hope to see a great group on February 10 at Fayette County Democratic Headquarters, 431 South Broadway!

Special Election – Volunteer Opportunities

The special election for the 62nd House Seat is underway. Losing this election could mean losing the State House to the Republican Party and the Republican Agenda for Kentucky (which is bad news for workers rights, women’s rights, education, healthcare, and the list goes on and on…)

The GOP intends to pour obscene amounts of money into these special elections to get complete control of our government here in Kentucky.  The Herald-Leader reported last week on just one of the groups who intend to by this election: National GOP pours money into special House races (1/31/16)  

We need your help to make sure we elect Chuck Tackett in the 62nd House District on March 8!

Please visit our Online Volunteer Form for our phonebank and canvass schedule moving forward.  Here you can sign up to make calls or knock doors between now and March 8.

If none of those dates work for you, or there is some other way you’d like to volunteer, please give us a call at 859.268.4448.

Together we can win this thing!

Democrats form the oldest political party in America and the youngest in spirit. For more than 200 years, Democrats have represented the interests of working families, fighting for equal opportunities and justice for all Americans. Our party was founded on the conviction that wealth and privilege should not be an entitlement to rule and the belief that the values of hardworking families are values that should guide us.Today Democrats are fighting to repair the damage done during the Bush years and grow an economy based on the values of Main Street, not greed and reckless speculation.


The vision is simple. Democrats want an America that gives all Americans the chance to live out their dreams and achieve their God-given potential. Democrats want an America that is still the world’s strongest force for peace and freedom. And Democrats want an America that is coming together around our enduring values instead of drifting apart.


The Fayette County Democratic Party’s mission is to support and promote the ideals of the Democratic National Committee and the Kentucky Democratic Party. FCDP promotes those principles and values, operates and maintains a grassroots network of people that is open, inclusive and accessible to all, encourages lifelong active participation by local Democrats, and takes an active part in the election process. The local party serves to recruit, support and elect Democratic candidates for county, state and national offices. Executive Committee Meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM at 431 South Broadway.  All meetings are open, and we welcome guests
