Letter from the Chairman

Thank you! Thank you for believing in conservative principals, thank you for believing in our conservative leaders and thank you for reading this, our first of many McCracken County GOP Newsletters. This Newsletter will be created monthly and will generally be available on our website at https://www.mccrackengop.com or via email. To be included on the mailing list simply click on “newsletter” on the website and opt in.

Now is a great time to be a Republican here in McCracken County. I am proud to report that Republican leaders now are a majority in the McCracken County Courthouse. Republicans control the Fiscal Court, the County Clerk’s office, the Sheriff’s Department, the County Jail, the PVA and many of our judges are registered Republicans. We also recently saw two Democrat leaders change their registration to Republican, one being the McCracken County Coroner Amanda Melton and the other, our Circuit Court Clerk Kim Channell. I applaud these two amazing ladies for following their convictions and standing up for their beliefs.

The Republican party is not just growing locally. We as a party are enjoying massive growth from across the state. The policies of Democratic Party leaders have left moderate Democrats feeling deserted by their Party. If the numbers continue on their current trend we will soon see the State of Kentucky not only be a lock-in for Republicans in the Electoral College but for the first time ever we’ll see more registered Republicans than Democrats here in the Commonwealth. Giving credit where credit is due, this rapid growth for the Republican Party in Kentucky could not be possible without the failed policies and disastrous leadership of Barack Obama, Andy Beshear and now Joe Biden. These men have done more to help recruit new Republicans in Kentucky than any other three individuals that I’m aware of in history. Don’t get me wrong, I would rather for our Country to be healthy and strong with a vibrant economy rather than our political party grow but in today’s political cloud-cover any silver lining is nice to see. My only hope is that the folks joining our growing Party are interested in conservative solutions to our complex problems rather than just seeking refuge from a Democratic Party that has gone rogue. Each of us are leading those within your sphere of influence through our actions and words whether we’re trying to or not and so I encourage all new Republicans and old ones alike to read and understand the Republican Party platform and become engaged.

A great opportunity to become engaged is an event that the McCracken County Republican Party is hosting on November 13th, 2pm at Blooms N’ Gardens (off of Old Cairo Road) on Pullen Lane in Paducah. We are inviting all current office holders and all declared candidates for office to speak and you are invited to attend. The cost is $25 per person and that will include some light hors d’oeuvres and beverages. A cash bar will be available as well.

I look forward to seeing you there and I look forward to continued growth within our Party, but more importantly I look forward to the application of conservative governing principals as we move our County, our Schools, our Citys, our State and our Country forward in the future.

Jason Crockett
Chairman
McCracken County Republican Party
