DEMOCRATIC PARTY HISTORY

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.We will be posting 2017 regular office hours in February.

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE PLATFORM

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.

FAYETTE COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S MISSION

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

2018 FCDP Awards Dinner

This could be a big year for Democrats! The tumultuous Trump and Bevin Administrations have alarmed responsible citizens and energized volunteers. Exciting candidates have stepped up, both up and down the ticket, and we are contesting every state legislative race on the ballot in Fayette County! We can turn out a record number of Democrats for this midterm election. But, it won’t be easy. This Democratic momentum is not going unnoticed by Republican special interest groups and dark money sources. Our candidates will be met with unprecedented spending this election cycle. That is why it is critical for the county party to provide even greater institutional, logistical and volunteer support for our Democratic candidates.

Our annual Fayette County Democratic Party Awards Dinner will be held on Thursday, April 19 at the Hyatt in downtown Lexington. Individual tickets are $100 each. And sponsorships are available ranging from $250 to $2,500. This event is our major source of income for the entire year. The funds allow us to maintain our headquarters and grow the party. A successful event will allow us to implement an effective county-wide field plan to make this a milestone election cycle.

General Assembly: Stay Informed & Take Action

The 2018 Kentucky General Assembly is now in session. Our elected legislators are there to work for us!  So, as they consider legislation to tackle major issues facing our Commonwealth – make sure you stay informed and let your voice be heard!

Below are some resources you may find helpful in staying informed and letting your voice be heard!

 

Contribute Today!

The 2018 elections may seem far away, but we cannot delay. Any contribution you can make TODAY will help us continue our party building efforts in preparation for election victories next year!

We’ve already been busy this year reaching voters and engaging volunteers. But funds are needed to continue these efforts and institute new ones! Your donation will enable us to cover the rent for our headquarters, and purchase and maintain our computers, printers and phones. Your support will help us pay for our web site, our e-mail distribution, and materials for training and canvassing programs like Walk the Talk. Your contribution will allow us to represent our local party at public events such such as the Pride Festival, July 4th, Latino Festival, Roots & Heritage Festival, and the Woodland Arts Fair.

This appeal is our major fundraiser this year.  Instead of spending money on a large dinner we want to put all of the donations we receive toward the valuable work that we are doing.

You can make your contribution online by clicking here.

Every contribution, regardless of the amount, will make an impact on our efforts to get Democrats elected! Your generosity will be greatly appreciated!

For those who have already given: we sincerely thank you!
