Scott County KFTC Update | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Scott County KFTC Update

 The Scott County KFTC chapter has been hard at work lately on a range of different campaigns and work areas.  Here's a quick rundown of recent actions and upcoming events.


- Earlier today, we had an hour-long presentation on Mountaintop Removal Mining at First Christian Church.  We made some new friends in the community and recruited 4 new KFTC members and built some connections with 30 more.

- Our voter registration efforts on campus last week were successful and we're looking forward to scheduling more registration days.


- We're still following up on the â€I Scream "Social Justice!â€â€  Ice Cream Social last month, which  brought in some new members and generated some good discussion about some of our key issues, including tax justice and mountain-top removal.  We aim to organize a similar event in mid-summer next year.

- The Chapter-initiated  campaign for curbside recycling in Georgetown is beginning to pick up steam.  Several members participated in the first meeting of the City-sponsored Recycling Committee late last month.  Subsequent meetings were set for September 8 and September 22.  Amy Cloud represented KFTC at the September 7 meeting, and we're hoping to get others out this week on the 21st.
