Our democracy is not the buildings, not the monuments. It's your being willing to work to make things better and being willing to listen to each other and argue with each other and come together and knock on doors and make phone calls and treat people with respect.
- Barack Obama, in his farewell to members of his staff, January 20, 2017
On January 21, 2017, we awoke to find an American game show host, Donald J. Trump, inaugurated as the President of the United States. He'd made a campaign promise to "drain the swamp" of Washington elites, but instead he began to fill his cabinet with Republican corporate billionaires.
Every freedom we hold dear—from decent health care, to public schools, to the clean air we breathe and water we drink—is now under attack.
As Democrats we are fighting back. We already outnumber our opponents. But to win we must be active. We must make our voices heard, volunteer, and vote. Join us and we will prevail!
David M. DeLuca
Chairman, Fayette County Democratic Party
ELECTION WORKERS NEEDED
I'm looking for a few good men. Okay, actually, I'm looking for many good men and good women.
Free and fair elections are essential for our democracy to function. As your County Chairman, I am responsible for conducting the March 6 Democratic Party Primary. Your party and I need your help in conducting the election.
Fayette County has 26 Election Precincts. I have linked to a map of those precincts below. To conduct the election, each precinct requires one Presiding Judge, one Associate Judge, and at least one Clerk. I will need to hire approximately 100 Democrats to staff all of those positions, including a few at the Central Counting Station (the Courthouse).

State and U.S. House members run for office every two years; Senators run for election every six years. Basically, this means that our Members of Congress are always either running for office or getting ready for their next election—a fact that shapes everything they do. What they hear from you and me in between elections matters.
