Thanks to Governor Steve Beshear the Kentucky Democratic Party has more than $700,000 in the bank. Funds that could be used to serve the KDP better than it’s ever been served before. A mountain of money that could finally dig us out of the dark ages.
Beyond shelling out for various candidates, what should Chairwoman Jennifer Moore do with all that cash?
Here are a few suggestions:
- Pay for the Kentucky Young Democrats to host their annual convention instead of forcing them to scramble for survival. Provide a budget for outreach. Lure young people in like the Republican Party of Kentucky does quite well.
- Teach Communications Director Allison Haley how to include bloggers who receive hundreds of thousands of visitors each month on her press list. Something Jonathan Miller, Jennifer Moore, Vicki Glass and Jeremy Horton all promised would happen months ago.
- Educate the everyman Democrat about the secretive, mind-boggling process of delegate selection. Jeff Noble is the only person in the state fighting to educate the masses and when he hosts a session the KDP can’t even find it within itself to send a representative.
- Start immediately returning telephone calls of potential candidates when they reach out to headquarters. Every potential senate candidate we have spoken with has expressed frustration at the lack of support and communication from the Party.
