Malvern Harvest 2017

Marsha Peltz and Adam Swope

Thank you to our volunteers Belt Bolt and Mary Lou Meehan who “manned” the booth on a crisp fall day. Candidates Scott Lambert and Samantha Jouin greeted voters who strolled King Street in Malvern.

We shared our booth, as is tradition, with the Willistown/Malvern Dems. Pictured with Zone 13 Leader Marsha Peltz is Zone 16 Leader Adam Swope.

Marsha’s mom, who evacuated from FL, was delighted to visit the annual Festival.

Mission Statement

We have proudly seen our zone burst with members, enthusiasm and voter turnout in just the last eight months. In response, under the leadership of Carl Abramson, a small group has been meeting diligently this summer to create a blueprint to move forward. We are listing our goals, strategies and actions for the fall and upcoming 2018 elections and beyond. At our August meeting, we unanimously voted approval for our Mission Statement. Our work will follow these key guidelines.

East Whiteland/Charlestown Dems’ mission is to represent Democrats and enable our neighbors to realize their full potential through good government. As members of the Chester County Democratic Committee (CCDC) and the Pennsylvania Democratic Party (PA Dems), we seek to develop, advocate and elect qualified candidates that mirror our community’s democratic values of truthfulness, transparency, equality. We will vigorously campaign and influence changes to enhance everyone’s quality of life in our neighborhoods, schools, parks, courts and beyond.

Look for our Mission Statement on our “Who We Are” page of this website. Tell your neighbors and newcomers about our values. We look forward to representing everyone in our community – Dems, Independents and Republicans.

Primary Election Results

First, a huge thank you to all of you who helped support our candidates on Election Day.  We had higher turnout than expected across all precincts thanks to your efforts.  Second, thanks to the voters who took the time to fulfill their civic duty and vote in this important local election.  The local elections have a tremendous effect on our daily lives and deserve our attention and action.
Our local candidates who cross-filed enjoyed broad bipartisan support in this election.  
Analisa Sondergaard, our District Justice candidate, won every East Whiteland precinct on both ballots in the District Judge 15-4-01 district.  Analisa was running for re-election and the results were a reflection of the great work she has done as a District Justice.   Since she won on both ballots, she will run unopposed in the general election.  Congratulations Analisa!
Samantha Jouin, our School Board candidate, also enjoyed broad bipartisan support in the Primary.  Samantha received more votes than any other candidate in the Primary and the results were a testimony to people’s faith in Samantha and an acknowledgement of her many years of service to our community.  Samantha will be on the ballot on November with the other 3 school board candidates.  
Congratulations to Samantha and thank you for your efforts to keep the Great Valley school district one of the best school districts in the state.
Scott Lambert, our Township Supervisor candidate won the Democratic primary as our other candidate, Chris Demas, stepped aside and supported Scott in the primary.  Congratulations to Scott and a big thanks to Chris for his selfless act to unify us in November.
