Qualified, Tested, Proven – our Chester County Democratic Party Candidates

QUALIFIED, TESTED, PROVEN

Dear fellow Democrat,

2015 is shaping up to be an exciting and historic year to be a Democrat in Chester County.

With important elections on the ballot for countywide and judicial offices, Democrats have a historic opportunity to make gains in what has been a one-party government for far too long.

Our full slate of Democratic candidates bring real-world experience to the table, something their opponents in the fall cannot say themselves.

While our team has spent years working in their community, their Republican opponents’ only experience is working for their party, and not in the real world. Our Democratic team has never been handed a job because of their party registration; they’ve worked hard in the private sector, and now they want to work hard for you.

Republicans have controlled county government for over 150 years. When one party controls anything for too long, it breeds corruption, patronage, and complacency. It’s time for a change, and your Democratic team in 2015 is ready to bring that change.

Control of Chester County isn’t the only thing at stake in 2015, though. With three seats on the Supreme Court and two other seats on appeals courts up for election this year, 2015 has the potential to fundamentally change the Pennsylvania judicial system. If things don’t go our way, we will once again face Republican gerrymandering when redistricting comes up the next time. And important issues like Voter ID and reproductive rights will be decided by a Republican court.

But it does not have to be that way. Our team of hard-working Democrats is going up against a powerful, entrenched political machine here in Chester County, but with your support they have a real chance to break through in 2015.

March 4 – Bret Binder – Brandywine Valley Business Council

Bret will be speaking about the startup business group, Brandywine Valley Business Council, a business group friendlier to Democratic ideals than the Chamber of Commerce, of which he is a co-founder. Bret is also the founder and managing member of Binder & Canno, LLC, a law firm located in East Bradford Township. Before founding his law firm, Bret was law clerk to Justice Sandra Schultz Newman of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. He credits his interest in the law to his father, David F.

He frequently hosts Democratic events at Windon Hall, his historic home in East Bradford Township.
