Chapter: Rolling Bluegrass

If you think there should be a way for you to have more of a say about issues in Scott and Harrison counties, you're right!

Come join us and get involved. We are currently working locally on making curbside recycling available in Georgetown, on pushing for a fairness ordinance in Scott and Harrison Counties, protecting water, and affirmatively furthering fair housing.
