Over 340 Chester County Democratic Committee Persons Also Elected Marsha Peltz, Nick Allen and MaryAnn Piccioni As Party Leadership

West Chester, PA (June 13, 2018) – An election was held tonight in Chester County with 146 days to go until the all-important November midterms. Dick Bingham of East Marlborough was elected Chair of the Chester County Democratic Committee (CCDC) with the goal of turning the county “blue” on November 6 and beyond, despite a 15,000 Republican voter registration edge.
More than 340 newly elected Chester County Committee Persons gathered at West Chester Stetson Middle School for the quadrennial Reorganization Meeting. Their task was to elect the next Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer along with the Audit Committee and Property Management Committee.
After a formal nomination process, speeches and voting, the winners are:

Chair – Dick Bingham of East Marlborough
Vice Chair – Marsha Peltz of Malvern
Secretary – Nick Allen of West Chester
Treasurer – MaryAnn Piccioni of Paoli
Audit Committee – Marianne  Johnson of West Chester, Mary McCracken of Wayne, Maria McCabe of Glenmoore
Property Management Committee – Jim Salvas of West Chester, Jim Bannan of Exton, Alan Yockey of Paoli, Linda Scott of West Chester

“I am proud to hand over my gavel to Dick,” said outgoing Chair Brian McGinnis who served with Bingham on the Executive Board.  “It’s now off to November 6. Let’s win this!”

The Democrats are poised for another historic win after 2017’s sweep of the four County Row Offices. Chrissy Houlahan, running for the 6th Congressional District seat, leads a long list of midterm election candidates, a majority of them women!

Bingham laid out his vision in his nominating speech. “Our goal is to help every one of our 228 precincts become a voter turnout powerhouse. Electing Democrats in Chester County will be the norm, never again the exception.”
