New Democratic Organization Launched Led by Former Covington Commissioner
A new Democratic Party organization has formed in Northern Kentucky led by former Covington City Commissioner Shawn Masters. Here is the news release from the organization:
There is a simple principle -- hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us. Democrats see our Commonwealth continually made stronger by the great diversity of talent and ingenuity. Kentucky can succeed because there is nothing that together as the Democratic party we cannot accomplish.
The Northern Kentucky Democratic League, Inc is a grassroots organization founded in 2013. Its mission is to bring unity, information, growth and excitement to the Northern Kentucky region as we work together to groom and elect great Democrats for public office.
The Northern Kentucky Democratic League's executive board consists of four officers, which will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the organization. The board members are: Shawn W. Masters,President, Diane Brumback, Vice Chair, Thomas Harding, Treasurer and Linda Hornsby will serve as Secretary.
The Republican Party has turned its back on the middle class Kentuckians who built this state. Our opponents believe we should go back to the top-down economic policies of the last decade. We have tried their policies—and we've all suffered when they failed. We must rebuild a strong foundation that ensures it never happens again.
“For the past decade, I have sadly watched as our party has slowly decreased in numbers in our region, and more importantly how our voice has become nothing but a whisper in Frankfort,” says NKDL President Shawn Masters. “Everything from complacency on important social issues, to not taking a stand for fear of upsetting someone else, to simply pulling the sheet over our heads when hard decisions needed to be made brings us to the bottom line -- there is no consistency or cohesion in the Democratic party in Northern Kentucky, at least not until now.”
The NKDL is positioned with an exciting and dynamic plan for speakers, events, and ways for everyone to get involved. This group will serve to educate our constituency, engage our base, and be the group that leads the charge for Democratic values in our region.
