Chapter: Scott County

If you think there should be a way for you to have more of a say about issues here in Scott County, you're right. 

The Scott County KFTC Chapter is committed to holding elected officials accountable and making our democracy stronger while working to make our community better a better place for all of us. Come join us and get involved. We are currently working locally on making curbside recycling available in Georgetown, and on pushing for a fairness ordinance in Scott County.

Recent Activities

New local jobs! Better health! Just Transition! Here's how.

There is a clear path forward for creating thousands of new Kentucky jobs in the energy industry while cutting pollution, lowering electric bills and investing billions of dollars in workers and communities affected by the decline in fossil fuels.

The plan for doing that was released Wednesday by KFTC members during a press conference and with the launch of a new website (www.empowerkentucky.org).

Scott County Residents Ready for Landfill Hearing

Residents of Scott County have concerns around the existing landfill near Sadieville. From concerns related to the trucks driving narrow roads, recent accidents in the community near the landfill, concerns over failure to guard against potential health impacts in the community, and the recent attempt to expand the landfill, neighbors are coming together to try to fight the landfill.

They get their next chance this Saturday, with a hearing with the Division of Waste Management. The hearing is about a proposed extension of the landfill for five years after it's current permit. This hearing is only about concerns from existing problems, such as odor, noise, operating oustide normal hours, as well as those listed before. Folks are encouraged to document only the concerns of the existing landfill, not to bring up the issues with the proposed expansion.

The hearing will start at 6 pm, and will be held at the Scott County High School gymnasium. Attendees are encouraged to wear blue.

KFTC's statement on immigrants, refugees and Muslims

We the people …

Kentuckians For The Commonwealth (KFTC) has a vision of a Kentucky where “discrimination is wiped out of our laws, habits and hearts.” While discrimination already hurts many members of our communities, the current state legislature and our national government are taking aim at some of our most vulnerable neighbors: immigrants, refugees and religious minorities, especially Muslims. As we always have, KFTC is standing up for the targets of discrimination and working hard toward wiping discrimination out of our laws, habits and hearts. 

We voice our solidarity with immigrants, refugees and religious minorities who are coming under increased attack in this current political climate.
