Message from the Chair

Dear Friends,

It is with regret that I must inform you that I have accepted an out-of-state position and, in January, will be submitting my resignation as Chair of the Fayette County Democratic Party.  I will miss my friends, the dedicated volunteers with whom it has been an honor to work with to advance the Democratic Party’s goals.

The Fayette County Democratic Party is an inspiring and hard-working group of volunteers,  and a Chair Search Committee already is hard at work.  If you or another dedicated Democrat you know should be interested in applying for the position (it is a volunteer position), please contact our Search Committee Chair, Alayne White, at alaynewhite.lex@gmail.com, for details.

Thank you all for allowing me to serve such an amazing group, which grows stronger with each passing year.  I look forward to watching the FCDP continue its growth in the future under new leadership.


Bob Layton,
FCDP Chair

January Executive Committee Meeting

The next Executive Committee Meeting will be held Thursday, January 8th at 6:30pm at Fayette County Democratic Party Headquarters.  Everyone is welcome!

Message from the Chair

Now that Lexington’s 2014 election is over, I want to thank our many candidates and our hard-working dedicated volunteers for their contributions in the fall campaign.  We had some great wins, and we lost some races with outstanding and deserving candidates.  None of it would be possible without our combined volunteer efforts.  Lexington continues to be strongly Democratic, and will continue to play a central role in elections in Kentucky.  Please continue your work with us in 2015 as Kentucky’s constitutional officers will be elected.   Please also share any suggestions you have for the Fayette County Democratic Party as we move forward toward 2015.  I can be reached by email at boblayton@gmail.com.

Bob Layton, Chair

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 progressive 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
