What happened to CivicLex?

CivicLex recently announced a new tiered membership program, offering donors of over $5,000 special access to their “civic supper club,” which possibly includes former CivicLex Board Members and current Council Members. The Lexington Times does not support initiatives such as these, as we see it as an effort to further elevate the voices of Lexington’s wealthy, privileged class, while continuing to suppress the voices of the working class. As such, we will be using Real Life Civics for our civic education content going forward.

CivicLex is offering donors of $5,000 or more special access to their former board members and current Council Members through their “Civic Supper Club.” Members of the working class are seemingly not eligible to attend the Civic Supper Club.
