If All Politics is Local, then This is Where Democracy Really Happens!
I would like to thank all of those people who kept the faith in the Democrat Committee and worked tirelessly to get our Democrat candidates elected. Although the election did not turn out the way we would have wanted it to at the top, we did have some victories.
Judge Christopher St. John was retained, Lorinda Hinch Magisterial Judge, Tom Amundsen County Controller, David U’Halie Jury Commissioner, Bernie Harry Hermitage Treasurer, and many local school board and municipal positions.
Your Democrat Committee put into place some new ideas this past election cycle and they seem to be heading in the right direction. We did informational door hangers in different parts of the County along with phone calls for our candidates. As the numbers come in we see there was an increase in voter turnout in the areas we targeted. This gives us a good base to work from in the future.
We are now gearing up for next year’s elections. We are bringing in the candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor this spring so all can have the opportunity to hear them speak of their qualifications. We are also opening up our new Headquarters at 16 Vine St. Sharon Pa. 16146. There are a lot of events being planned for next year so keep your eyes and ears open when we announce them. This spring we will be having a breakfast with the Hermitage Democrats and the PSEA to bring in all the candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor. This summer we are working on a street picnic for all Democrats in front of our Headquarters, and of course the Annual Fall Dinner. These will be our main fund raisers to support your Committee’s efforts in the future. There will be a lot of events added, these are just a couple.
We hope you will stay involved, get involved, and bring in new people to be involved. This is the only way we can move Mercer County in the right direction.
Thank you again for your support of the Mercer County Democrat Committee!!!Chaz Rice, MCDC Chairman
