I urge you to not take any election for granted.  We are given the liberty in this country to have a say in who our elected officials are, and I urge each and every one of you to exercise that privilege at any given opportunity.  Odd numbered years are for municipal elections when we elect our fellow community members to provide public service to us right here at home - in our schools, in our township, in our county and in our municipal and state courts.  Please read this newsletter carefully for all the election details.  
 
We are fortunate to have a stellar roster of honest and hardworking candidates on our ballot for the 2021 election cycle, including for the PA Supreme Court.  We have all come to appreciate in recent years how important who sits on our courts is.  And since this is a primary, many of our candidates will go on to the general election as a matter of course in November.  However, Pennsylvania law allows for school board and judicial candidates to cross file in primaries.  Therefore, you will see Republican school board and judicial candidates on your ballot and they are not identified by party.  So it is of particular importance to us all that these candidates become familiar to you and have your support.
 
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind our community that I have personally witnessed the ongoing dedication, professionalism and heavy lifts that our school board candidates in particular have demonstrated throughout the most trying of experiences for our public schools in a century.  No one signed up for the hundreds of hours’ worth of meetings over the past 15 months that our school board volunteers have lent to navigate the inconceivable.  And they did so with dignity and grace. Below is just some of what the current slate of school board candidates has achieved in their combined 28 years of school board experience, including this past year.  They will always be committed to providing the most cutting edge and well-rounded educational experiences for each and every one of our students in the safest, most accessible and equitable environment possible.  That extensive experience matters, not only because the learning curve is steep, but also because it breeds institutional knowledge that contributes to more informed governing decisions and a reliable and stable district culture which is good for the entire community.
 
Please urge your Democratic friends and neighbors to VOTE on Tuesday.  The polls are open from 7AM-8PM and please visit radnordemocrats.comvotespa.com, or email Rob Armstrong at rob@lazyreptile.com  for more information or if you have any questions or concerns.
 

Democratically yours,

George Badey, Chair

UPCOMING EVENTS
AS a follow-up to the Radnor Dems meeting last night, we are beginning to sign people to be OUTSIDE poll greeters.  The primary job is handing out our sample ballot and greeting voters, etc
 
Below is the sign-up genius link.  Please sign up for a shift(s).  It’s essential that we have representation for all shifts since we have candidates such as School Board and Judges who are cross-listed with registered Republicans in their primaries.
 
Feel free to share the sign-up link with other like-minded neighbors and friends who want to help the Democrats.
