Today, I'm writing to let you know about the next chapter in our Action for Democracy work. I'm excited to announce that the KFTC Steering Committee voted at its March meeting for KFTC's New Power PAC to endorse Adam Edelen for governor in the Democratic primary.

Teams of KFTC Steering Committee leaders met with and interviewed all four Democratic candidates for governor. We have extended our appreciation to each of them for the respectful and informative conversations. We'll also encourage them all to be stronger on some key issues. And, frankly, we look forward to supporting whoever is the Democratic nominee after the primary election.

But Adam Edelen really stood out to the Steering Committee. He's campaigning on a promise to build a new economy and using renewable energy as the engine of a just transition. He committed to the restoration of voting rights and ending cash bail, to invest in education and health care, to protect the Medicaid expansion, and more. We encourage you to visit to read more about his positions.

KFTC's New Power PAC doesn't endorse a candidate in every race. But when we find a candidate who aligns well with our vision and policy positions, we want to make sure our members and friends know about them.

KFTC members have an opportunity to make a decisive impact in the elections this year and next. I encourage you to join with your fellow members to register new voters, organize your friends and neighbors, and help get them to the polls on May 21.

And I hope you'll join with the Steering Committee and extend your support to Adam Edelen for governor.

The KFTC Steering Committee is all in for our democracy and our future, because we believe we can make a difference. And we'll need your help. I know that we are our best hope for change, and together we can build a healthy democracy and a better Kentucky.
