Malvern >> In a letter to members of the Democratic Committee in the 167th Legislative District, Kristine Howard, a local Democratic activist and Chester County child welfare worker, announced her intentions to seek the Democratic nomination for state representative.
In the letter, the single mother of three boys and four girls, told committee members, “the sweeping victories of our Chester County row office candidates in 2017 heralded a seismic shift in the political realities we previously understood as activists Democrats.” Citing elections in 2016 and 2017 within the boundaries of the 167th District, she pointed out that Democratic women received more votes in nearly every race where their opponent was a Republican man.
“The seat is currently held by an enabler who votes for the radical Republican leaders who set the anti-woman, pro-gun, LGBTQ-discriminating, public school-defunding, climate change-denying, corporate-giveaway legislative agenda in Harrisburg. I want to change that and cast a vote as a member of a Democratic majority for a Speaker of the House who will lead us in a new direction,” Howard said….

A Message from Joe Denham
As a pediatric anesthesiologist at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, I advocate each day for the health and safety of my young patients and their families. At CHOP, each day is a matter of life and death. The children and their families need to see positive results.
It’s time that working families, our children, and our seniors are treated the same way in Harrisburg.
I am running for PA State Representative because Harrisburg is broken. Entrenched politicians continue to play political games by allowing a 9-month budget impasse for 2015-16 which forced state agencies and school districts to borrow money to continue their important work.
My opponent recently voted NO on the recent 2016-17 budget revenue bill. He stood with Harrisburg insiders who wanted another budget impasse. The budget revenue bill did pass with bipartisan support enabling the work of our schools, agencies, county and local gov’ts to continue.
As an elected township supervisor in Chester County, I successfully work in a bipartisan manner and achieve a healthy economy where there has been no tax increases. I also led our township toward the recent Moody Aaa financial upgrade for West Whiteland Township. Moody specifically looked at our initiatives during 2014-16 (my years in office) as a major reason for our Aaa status. My township is 1 of 2 twps in Chester County and 1 of 6 twps (out of 2,400) in Pennsylvania with Moody’s top Aaa financial rating.
My name is Joe Denham and I will fight to create jobs, grow our economy and reform the way Harrisburg works. Together, we will make legislators accountable and restore health and strength in Pennsylvania.
Candidate, PA State House of Representatives-167

WEST WHITELAND >> Local residents fighting against Sunoco’s Pipeline agents delivered testimony about their experiences with them at a former Revolutionary War battlefield on Thursday afternoon.
Sunoco has plans to lay pipelines across Chester County and has contracted agents to negotiate easements with residents in order to lay pipeline through their property. However, some residents have expressed frustration and anger with the conduct of some of these agents.
The event, organized by state Sen. Andy Dinniman, D-19, of West Whiteland, drew roughly 30 residents and revolved around the theme “pipeline bullying.” Dinniman also highlighted legislation he proposed to handle disrespectful and abusive agents….
