YOU DID IT, EAST GOSHEN!

Take a bow!

East Goshen elected Democrats across the ballot!

On a cold, rainy November day you braved the weather to come out and be heard and you were rewarded. The turnout was historic and when the rain cleared we saw brilliant skies, beautiful rainbows and much-deserved victory.

Every Democrat on our ballot won yesterday. Across Pennsylvania, Democrats achieved unprecedented victories.

Senator Casey, Governor Wolf and Representative Comitta have all won another term in office.

Chrissy Houlahan is now the first woman to represent PA06 in Congress. An amazing and well-earned victory!

All of the Democratic candidates won in East Goshen. East Goshen voters are only about one-third registered Democrat, but they voted blue yesterday! It’s a rebuke of Trumpian politics and an embrace of what we stand for: Truth and Progress.

Chester County had 66% voter turnout yesterday, which is incredibly high.  HOWEVER, East Goshen topped it with more than 70% turnout!

I hope you’ll come to our next meeting on Thursday November 29 at 7pm in the township building. It will be a celebration of hard work.

Thank you all for your support. Our coming together has made a real difference in our community. We are proud and grateful for East Goshen Dems. This is just the beginning of what we can accomplish together.

A Blue Wave

This week has already been a momentous one!

We have officially seen the swearing in of our very first Democratic East Goshen Supervisor in the history of our township. Thank you to everyone who came out to bear witness to the event and say hello. Our community showed up in great numbers to support of their newly elected official.

And today, Chester County swore in not just its FIRST Democrat in a row office since its founding in 1682, but FOUR outstanding Democratic women who swept the November election!

 Congratulations again to Treasurer Patricia Maisano, Clerk of Courts Yolanda Van de Krol, Coroner Dr. Christina VandePol, and Controller Margaret Reif. Seen here with Brian McGinnis, chairman of the Chester County Democrats.

Thank you to everyone who braved the freezing temperatures to celebrate these events. Together we can make sure this Blue Wave never slows down!

An Invitation

The East Goshen Democrat Committee invites you to attend the Township Supervisor Meeting on Tuesday, January 2nd to witness the swearing in of David Shuey, the first Democrat elected to the board.

The meeting will be at 6 pm at the Township Building on Paoli Pike.

We would love to see you there so we can thank you in person for coming out to vote this November.

Happy New Year! May 2018 bring a wave of change that benefits everyone.

Congratulations, East Goshen Democrats!

Congratulations everyone! You elected the most qualified, principled and dedicated group of public officials. 

David Shuey wins East Goshen Township Supervisor, the first time an elected Democrat has ever held this position. David ran a stellar campaign and came in first out of three candidates. His dedication to the many troubling ME2 pipeline issues, his fact-finding trips to Harrisburg and canvassing the township proved that knowledge is the basis of a winning campaign.

And if that was not enough good news... we had a first-time historic Democratic sweep of county row offices. The FIRST FOUR Democrats ever elected to county row office in Chester County, PA since its founding in 1799... and they are all women. Chester County Dems said it best, "What is so important about the row office results is not just that Dems finally have a seat at that table, but that the public interest will be advanced by an overall set of countywide officials who represent the diversity of the county—including these 4 highly talented and dedicated professionals."

It was a big win for the Democratic Party across the board this November 7th. Here in East Goshen, we watched as our candidates introduced themselves to each and every voter, took time to explain their platforms and listen to voter concerns. It was a long, hard campaign and now everyone is eager to... rest? Absolutely not. They are itching to get to work. As it has always been here in our corner of Pennsylvania, we are anxious to work together to make this township safe, profitable, equitable and the perfect place to live.

As for the Democrats who came out and showed up for your party, we thank you! We're going to need you to stay involved to have the greatest impact on future elections. Please come say hello at our next public meeting at the Township Building on November 30th at 7pm. 

Here are the still unofficial results which also include judges of Superior and Supreme Court. More updates as they become official throughout the following days.
