Democratic Party Chair
David O'Brien Suetholz
Welcome From Our County Chair
am proud to join a long line of Henry County
Democratic party chairs and look forward to
supporting the elected officials and community
activists who have worked tirelessly to make our
community better. Our Democratic party welcomes all
who place love of neighbor at the forefront and
promote unity in our community over division. Caring
about one another, pulling together in times of
adversity and strife and focusing on “we” rather
than “me” is why I am proud to call Henry County as
my home and the Democratic Party as my party.
Democrats, we strive to better our communities
according to our state motto “united we stand,”
focusing on those who have been pushed to the
margins. We seek to broaden our base by talking with
sincere concern for the issues that are important to
our neighbors and not by stoking fear, anger, and
resentment. The Democratic party has faithfully
served the people of Henry County for generations.
From fixing potholes to organizing farmers, from the
Coroner to the Clerk’s office, Henry County’s
democratic leaders are the people who have always
answered the phone and found ways to lift us all up
through responsive government. We are the party who
created social security and funded rural
electrification. Our leaders dreamed up the Burley
Tobacco Growers Cooperative and used the power of
the government to protect people from the abuses of
monopolies and consolidated wealth. It was
Democratic leaders who ushered in the modern middle
class by forcing corporations to recognize the
dignity of their workers through collective
bargaining. Democratic leaders passed laws (now
repealed as soon as Republicans took power) to
ensure Kentucky’s construction workers did not have
to compete with the paltry wages of abused
immigrants working for out of state companies or as
independent contractors. Democratic leaders passed
budgets that protected pensions, ensured spending on
roads and bridges. The construction workers who
enjoyed “prevailing wages” live in every corner of
our beautiful county. The next generation of young
adults deserve the same.
And it was Democrats who finally recognized that
women are just as capable as men and deserve the
protection and respect to participate and realize
their aspirations in the manner they see fit.
Strong, Democratic women have not only held our
families together, but have been valued leaders in
our community. Our party will always stand for the
integrity and full participation of women.
Some confuse love, compassion, mercy and kindness
with weakness. Our policies will expand access to
health care, secure dignified retirements by
strengthening social security and to making sure
that government serves all of us and not just the
connected few. We will continue to be motivated by
love of our neighbors and with uplifting our entire
community. We welcome your voice and your vision as
we do that. Feel free to contact me (email@example.com)
as the new party chair of the Henry County
Democratic Party to get involved.
We've got work to do,
you should be a part of it!
