Look at the names and positions!
Do you think this group has political clout in Frankfort?

I have known, former Franklin County Judge,Bob Arnold for years, and he is nothing but political.

Still, the power of the party has been designated to the County Judges. How can we bring into the mainstream, younger, more youthful Democrats?

That is what this county judges organization is about POLITICS and assistance in re-electing incumbents. And, that does not mean it is bad public policy, but it does limit the debate.
