Letter from the Chair – 4/2/2021

Hello Grant County Democrats!

Time is growing short for the Precinct Elections!  The basis of our Democratic Party Reorganization will be closing soon, BUT it’s not too late!  Come to our meeting on 4/6/at 5:30 at the Library and learn how YOU can participate and make a difference!

In the meantime, here is a message from Kenny Fogle, Deputy Political Director of the Party:

“We have Democrats that are literally intimidated to the point they do not want anyone to know they are Democrats.  We have others who say they disagree with Nancy Pelosi and AOC or Joe Manchin.  We have Democrats that are just tired of trying and dealing with the negativity coming from neighbors and family and we simply just have many Democrats that have either given up or are walking away for a number of reasons.  Honestly, they are all valid points, but instead of walking away and surrendering, now is the time to stand up for what we believe and work together to make it better.  If the Democratic Party does not suit you, then be the agent of change and make it better. If your neighbor is being a bully, then join together and make it stop. If your local newspaper is going too far right, stand up and let’s make them listen. 

The number one thing we can do right now. Today, is sign people up to Vote or just Participate in our ReOrg 2021.  Show them they are not alone and we are committed to making the Democratic Party work for everyone because we simply Care about People.  Sign up here and get others to sign up too: https://kydemocrats.org/2021-reorg/precinct-member/.  The deadline is Monday, April 12th.  The next election is in 2024.  

The second thing we can do today is sign up to call others, whether in your county, your Congressional District, or around the state.  We have a phone bank set up with nothing but friendly Democrats on the call list waiting for someone to invite them in.  Please be that someone.  There are few things more satisfying than talking to a Democrat and helping them come home and get involved.  It really does make you feel good, you learn something from them and you make a new friend.  All good.  Here is the link to sign up for the Phone Bank  https://www.mobilize.us/kydems/event/381258/  If you have a few minutes this weekend or an evening or two next week, please help us reach every Democrat in Kentucky and at least give them the opportunity to get involved.  It is truly the only way we will regenerate the energy we need to bring the Democratic Party in Kentucky back to where it belongs and helping people.  Whether it’s Public Education, Healthcare, Feeding the Hungry, Housing the Homeless, Protecting Labor, and Preserving our Natural Resources, it ALL begins with each one of us in the Kentucky Democratic Party.  Please Help. 

If you need our help, have any questions or concerns, or just want to talk, give us a call.  
Thank you for all that you do for your community and for the State of Kentucky.  
Kenny”

See you guys Tuesday!!
