Capital Democrats Inaugural Kickoff This Monday

We'd like to invite you to the inaugural gathering of Capital Democrats, a new organization for Democrats who work in Frankfort, call the Frankfort area home or are involved in Kentucky politics. Capital Democrats will work to build and strengthen the Kentucky Democratic Party through political organization and fundraising – but with a special emphasis on social gatherings and fellowship with your fellow Democrats.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve spoken with a number of folks who live or work in Frankfort to see what they are looking for in an organization that brings together area Democrats. Repeatedly, we heard three things: you want a group that is more social, you want a group that is more politically active and, above all, you want a more cost accessible organization. We’ve taken these suggestions to heart and, in Capital Democrats, believe we created an organization that meets these goals.

We’re kicking off our new organization with an event featuring our Governor Steve Beshear and Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson. They, along with other elected Democrats, will help us kick off Capital Democrats with the first of several great events we have planned for this year.

WHO: Governor Steve Beshear, Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson, and Other Democratic Elected Officials

WHEN: Monday, February 13th, 5:00 to 6:30 PM

WHERE: KDP Headquarters, Third Floor, 190 Democrat Dr, Frankfort

DUES: We’ve lowered the dues from similar past organizations to $200 per year. This is available to be paid in a lump sum or in four installments of $50.

At our Capital Democrats kick-off celebration I look forward to sharing with you some of the events we have planned for the upcoming year and ways in which we’ll work to strengthen our party.
