Dispatch 5/11/18--Happy Mother's Day!

Liz_Watson_Primary.jpgThe primary election is over, and now we are looking ahead to the general on November 6th! Congratulations to all of the victors, and a sincere “thank you” to every single candidate. Running for elected office is a tremendous undertaking that requires resilience and a passion for public service, and we are so fortunate here in Monroe County that we have so many citizens who are up to the task. Our commonalities greatly outnumber our differences, and we as Democrats must focus on those common goals and work together to improve lives. Let’s take a few days to regroup (and pick up candidate signs from HQ), and then get to work to elect Democrats in the fall! Stay posted for ways to get involved--the Harrodsburg parade is this weekend, and MCDP will be at events all summer and fall!

Democratically yours,

Kaisa Goodman
Executive Director, MCDP


Happy Mother's Day!

Truly every day is a great day to celebrate the incredible women in the world. Today, we take time to acknowledge all of the hard work, dedication, and love that our mothers and grandmothers have shown us. Thank you!
