Joe Denham for PA House district 167

from East Whiteland Dems, 9/21/16

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.

Residents, officials air concerns about pipeline tactics

by Adam Farence, Daily Local News, 3/11/16

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….

Denham announces bid for state Rep. Milne’s seat

By Adam Farence, Daily Local News, 3/05/16

WEST WHITELAND >> Wasting no time at all to jump into the political battlefield, Democratic Board Supervisor Joe Denham launched his bid for Republican state Rep. Duane Milne’s seat in the 167th District, criticizing him over the state budget impasse.

“The people in this district need and deserve a different change in leadership,” Denham said. “They need leadership they have not been getting. My opponent, along with many other legislators, have been obstructionists.”

Milne rebutted, saying “I stand strongly behind my body of work; it’s what the district expects me to be doing.”

Denham also called Milne’s decision to continue taking his pay a “disgrace.”

“It’s reflective of Harrisburg being broken,” he said. “What if they run their homes the way they run the state? They’re there to serve the public. My campaign is a wake-up call, particularly to my opponent.”…
