Biographical Note

The Louisville-Jefferson County Democratic Party (LJCDP) is a civic and political organization whose mission is “to ensure effective government that supports, protects and respects the citizens of [the] community, commonwealth and country by advancing candidates, public officials and policies that promote basic Democratic values.” This collection also includes records for two other local groups with which the LJCDP works closely but is not affiliated: the Women’s Democratic Club of Jefferson County and the Mid-Town Democrat Club (defunct July 2009). As of 2010, both the LJCDP and the Women’s Democratic Club are still active.
