Fayette County is split into four equally proportioned County Board of Commissioners and School Board Districts. Each District elects one member to both boards, and a 5th board member is elected from a county-wide “At-Large” District.
Currently, Fayette County stands at about 47% Democrat, 53% Republican (using 2021’s Warnock-Leoffler election data). On both County boards, only 1 out of 5 seats (20%) are Democrat held.
Because of an incredibly sad history of black voter suppression in Fayette County (Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C), conservative white Republicans have controlled local government since they were conservative white Democrats.
In this election and the next, the FCDC knows we have the numbers to flip the Fayette County Boards of Commissioners and Education to 3-2 in favor of the Democrats. We have the amazing Dr. Regina Daigre and Commissioner Charles Rousseau running for this year’s election, and there’s a deep bench of strong candidates waiting in the wings to challenge Republican seats for 2024.
