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.

Voting Rights Presentations Across the Commonwealth

Citizen lobbying on KFTC's issues doesn't just happen through direct contact with legislators.  We also do a lot of broad public education and leadership development work, which is at least as important.

Former Felon Voices - James Snyder, Scott County

James Snyder 1

In an attempt to share more of the stories from former felons across the Commonwealth, we're presenting a series of short interviews every few weeks on our blog and in balancing the scales.

"I'm a veteran of 9 years in the US Army infantry.
My dad was in the military and I grew up on army bases...  Both my grandfathers served in the military too." 

But despite this service and more, James Snyder does not have the right to vote here in Kentucky.

Scott County KFTC "Chatter"

IMG_3253

The Scott County Chapter had another great meeting on Thursday.  Members reported on the last Steering Committee meeting, the Martin Luther King Day march in Georgetown, lobby-training in Lexington, and some exciting first-time lobbying in Frankfort – by a new member, at that!

We welcomed several active new members, including two sociology majors at Georgetown College who plan to focus on organizing their fellow undergraduates.
