What is the Kentucky Club for Growth?
The Kentucky Club for Growth is a group of citizens dedicated to expanding the prosperity of working families through the Reagan Doctrine of lower taxes, smaller government and strong free enterprise.
As the Kentucky chapter for a rapidly growing national organization, we are committed to seeing that Kentuckians regain a voice in Kentucky politics for the benefit of ourselves, our children and our grandchildren! For too long, elected officials who claim to be fiscal conservatives have cast aside their beliefs at the expense of their constituents.
To that end, the Kentucky Club for Growth is committed to supporting and electing men and women who are advocates of the issues we have identified that are most critical to our Commonwealth.
