from CCDC Chair Brian J. McGinnis, 10/2/17
Hello Fellow Chester County Dems:
Are you ready to make history? Only 36 days to go. We have the an opportunity to send a message to Donald Trump and the Republicans nationally by voting locally! Let’s make this a statement Election and show the public that our candidates will restore integrity, trust, and transparency to government. Remember, the last day to register to vote in this year’s election is October 10th.
I can’t say enough about the team of highly qualified candidates we have on the ballot for county row offices, state and magisterial judiciary, municipal offices, and school directors. With your help, we will produce a turnout and votes to win every seat! Let’s start by electing Patricia Maisano for Treasurer, Margaret Reif for Controller, Dr. Christina VandePol for Coroner, and Yolanda Van de Krol for Clerk of Courts – they have all worked very hard to win votes and I’m so proud of them, as well as every other Dem on the ballot.
Volunteers still needed
Join in the excitement and volunteer to canvass for a candidate, make calls, drop lit, place yard signs, or greet at the polls; call the office at 610-692-5811 or email email@example.com and our team will get you started.

Ballot Question on Property Taxes
The state Republicans want to change the PA Constitution to allow local jurisdictions to eliminate the property tax; while this sounds like a great idea to many people, the approach and power this will give the General Assembly is downright scary. While we agree that property tax reform is long overdue, taking this huge step without ensuring that revenues exist to support public schools, police and first responders is dangerous. We recommend a NO vote – to Save Our Schools!
