Those who attended the June 23 Bradford Democrats annual summer picnic were treated to some rainy weather but wonderful food, music (thanks to John Fuhr and Joanne Hill and friends), meeting and making new friends, and lots of political discussion. Thanks to new committee person Theresa Soja for a great job of organizing, Bob Buckalew and John Malone for grilling, Sue Phifer and Janice Shreffler for the grab bags, Linda Buckalew for setup, and everyone for bringing their favorite summer dish to share!
After Bradford Dems Chair Kevin Houghton acknowledged all the volunteers who made the event a success, West Bradford resident and Candidate for PA House in the 158th, Christina Sappey, shared her vision for the district, including for jobs and the economy, healthcare, education, and the environment. Go Chris!
The Bradford Democrats thank you for voting on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

Our November slate of Democratic Candidates is outstanding:
Governor- Tom Wolf
Lt. Governor- John Fetterman
US Senate- Bob Casey
US 6th District House- Chrissy Houlahan
PA 158th District State House- Chris Sappey
