Urban County Council Candidate Forums

In September and October 2022, the Lexington Nonprofit Coalition hosted a series of candidate forums to hear from Urban County Council candidates on where they stand on issues important to Lexington's nonprofits and the residents we serve. 

The nonprofit sector is essential to Lexington's quality of life AND economy. Nonprofits deserve a seat at the table when decisions are being made that impact our mission and the people we serve. Educating our elected officials on these facts is necessary to ensure nonprofits can effectively accomplish their missions.
