A Historic Election

We had hoped to use the title of this post for the election results of 2016 but that election has passed and it’s time to move on. As stunning as the 2016 results were at the national level, the 2017 results at the local level were equally stunning.

For the fourth consecutive Township Supervisor election in East Whiteland, a Democratic Supervisor candidate has won a hard fought contest. While the previous two Supervisor races have been decided by less than a 1% margin, Scott Lambert won this election by the largest margin ever for a Democrat – 276 votes. There will now be three Democrats serving on the Board of Supervisors.

For the first time in recent memory, and possibly for the first time ever, a Democrat, Samantha Jouin, has won the Region 1 school board race in the Great Valley School District. Samantha will serve on the school board with fellow Democrat Bryan Paluch who won his race in Region 3 – another first in the school district.

Generally speaking, Democratic candidates did extraordinarily well in East Whiteland and Charlestown. Here are some of the highlights in our zone:

  • County row candidates won every precinct in our zone.  Controller candidate Margaret Reif won nearly 60% of the vote in our zone.
  • Judicial candidates won every precinct in our zone except one (by 4 votes).
  • In competitive races, local candidates won every precinct in our zone except one (by 7 votes).

These results reflect the hard work of our candidates, Committee people and volunteers. Once again we have demonstrated that grassroots efforts can make a difference. Please consider getting involved as there are plenty of ways to volunteer.

While these results are historic and should be celebrated, this is no time to become complacent. The 2018 election cycle starts now and it’s time to take our government back at every level.

Stuffing without a turkey?

Bob, Scott, Sue, Joyce.
Thanks to many helpers, we were able to stuff and stamp 1420 mailings to registered Dems and Independents in our two towns. With an influx of donations, passing-the-cup and a surprise grant from Chester County Democratic Committee (CCDC) we can do so much more this year to Get Out The Vote.

Absentee Ballot Pizza Party

What do college kids away-from-home and senior Sisters at Immaculata’s Nursing Home have in common? They are all voters who may not get to the polls on Election Day. But your Absentee Ballot Committee is sending them a letter and return envelope to cast a ballot for their judges, county row officers, school board and other representatives.
Thank you to Carl & Adrienne Abramson, Joyce Stanley, Marsha Peltz and Bob Eshleman who gathered to stuff hundreds of envelopes and enjoy pizza from Tonino’s. As Marsha always says, we’re a “party” so why not have some fun?
