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

Zombies, voter guides, and phone calls, oh-my.

gDSC_0413A few days ago, we gathered with Georgetown NAACP and had an evening of voter mobilization calls, calling through a list of 150 people in an evening, and making a plan to distribute 300 print voter guides. 

Last night, our allies in the Georgetown College Sociology Club organized a Social Justice workshop where students got to learn about the work of such campus groups as the Student Abolitionist Movement, Student Women and Gender Society, Campus Spectrum, Georgetown Sustainability Initiative, Ambassadors of Diversity, and Common Ground (Campus Ministry).

 Don't be a zombie! - learn about the candidates at www.KentuckyElection.org and vote on Tuesday, November 6th.

With Halloween close upon us, there are a lot of big zombie-related shenanigans across the state of Kentucky in the next few days.

Voter Registration Outreach today in Georgetown

gIMG_7213

Members of the Scott County Chapter of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth were out today at the Festival of the Horse in Georgetown canvassing the crowds and registering more people just days before the Oct 9th deadline. 

We only registered about a dozen voters, but at least twice that many people stopped ut to ask questions about what candidates will be on the ballot, how to cast an absenttee ballot, or about some other election-related question.  Others remembered our Scott County Voter Guide from the primary election and let us know that they're looking forward to receiving one for the General Election.
