The Smiths have been involved in Kentucky and national Democratic politics for decades and have helped many with fundraising and grassroots support.

“Working with some of our Kentucky experts, elected officials and volunteers, we will provide a solid foundation and informative sessions on the basics to run for office,” said Nathan Smith. “We want to encourage people to run for city council, school board, county and state offices to learn what it is all about.”
