Democratic strategy session moved

COVINGTON - The organizers of a Democratic Party strategy meeting scheduled for Wednesday night have changed the location of the gathering.

It will still be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m., but the location has been moved from the Lookout Corporate Center in Fort Wright to the first floor media center of the west RiverCenter Tower on RiverCenter Boulevard in Covington.

The meeting, organized by state Treasurer Jonathan Miller, is open to all Democrats and designed to build the party's political and financial base for the 2003 gubernatorial election.

The meetings are aimed "at jump-starting our grass-roots efforts in time for next year's crucial general election," Mr. Miller said in announcing the series of 10 statewide meetings. "It is essential that our gubernatorial nominee hit the ground running (after the May primary) with a fully mobilized party in support."

So far, two slates of Democrats are in the party's gubernatorial primary: Attorney General Ben Chandler and his lieutenant governor running mate, Louisville businessman Charlie Owen; and House Speaker Jody Richards, and his running mate, Louisville Circuit Court Clerk Tony Miller.
