Report from KY Democrat Convention. Two delegates from Adair County attended the state convention yesterday in Louisville KY at the Expo Center. They were Pam Shearer, Vice Chair and Vicky Pike Secretary/Treasurer of the Adair County Democrat Party Executive Committee.

The convention got underway with verification of voting credentials by the credentials committee that I had the honor to serve on.

Nominations for KY Central Executive Committee were made for Congressional District 1. Then nominations for delegates to the National Democrat Convention for Congressional District 1. Voting was then conducted by smart phone or laptop.

A short break for lunch was taken. Then all six districts joined together in the larger meeting hall for the afternoon of speaking.

We were welcomed by Sannie Overly, state chair and mayor Greg Fisher of Louisville.

Many Democrat dignitaries were in attendance. Those speaking were John Yarmuth, Andy Beshear, Jim Gray, Leslie Combs, Allison Lundergan Grimes, and former Governor Steve Beshear, who received a huge standing ovation many times during his speech.

Then there were several changes to the bylaws voted on by the entire delegation and more delegates to the national convention were nominated and then voted on.

The meeting concluded at around 6 pm. This was a huge learning experience for me and a great honor to participate in the process of choosing the next leader of our country.

Adair County had one delegate assigned to Bernie Sanders and one to Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Respectfully submitted, - Victoria Pike
