Congratulations to PA 158th House Representative-Elect Chris Sappey!
The 2018 General Election on November 6th resulted in huge wins locally for Democrats: Both the PA House 158th and US 6th Congressional District offices went to Democrats for the first time in 150+ years. Congratulations to our new Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan and PA House Rep Christina Sappey!
The Bradford Democrats are grateful for all of the volunteers who canvassed, called, sent postcards, or donated and those who voted for these two outstanding women as well as for Governor Tom Wolf and Senator Bob Casey, who were easily re-elected.
The next Primary Election is just around the corner – May 21, 2019. Beginning February 19th, our committee people and volunteers will be knocking on doors to collect your signatures to get Democrats running for Chester County Commissioner, County Row Offices, judicial seats and township and school board offices on the May ballot. We are still looking for candidates for East & West Bradford Supervisors and WCASD and DASD School Board seats. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Stay tuned for information about our Bradford Dems Annual Campaign Kick-off being planned for late February. This is your first chance to meet and talk with the candidates who will be in the ballot in 2019.
It’s a simple message – this election will decide if we get the representation in Harrisburg and Washington that we deserve. It’s not about Trump, but which party will work hard for the policies and issues that you care most about: we’ve heard from you that Healthcare, GunViolence, Education and the Environment have been the most important as we’ve canvassed this fall for Christina Sappey (PA House 158th), Chrissy Houlahan (US 6th Congressional), Senator Bob Casey, and Governor Wolf with Lt. Governor candidate John Fetterman. While Republicans talk about devisive issues such as immigration and tout a tax bill where 83% of the benefits went to the top 1%, Democrats are pushing for change that actually matters to us in Chester County.
Please join us on Election Day in voting, and if you would like to volunteer to poll watch or greet, contact your local committee person. Polls are open 7am to 8pm. We want and need your straight Democratic Party Vote. Stop by and say Hi!
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!
