Volunteers Needed!

With your help, We Can Win this November!
Fact: Democrats outnumber Republicans in Haverford Township by almost 800 registrations.
Fact: Democrats outnumber Republicans in Delaware County by 18,000 registrations.

Why do Republicans dominate the Township Commission and totally control the County Council? Because Democrats in the past have not shown up to vote in “off-year” elections. We can move past the nightmare of last November. Democratic victories in our 2017 races change local politics and build energy for the 2018 fight against Congressman Pat Meehan.

Selection vs. Election

Vice-Chair Rachel Amdur explains why the Democratic Party supports a democratic process in electing school board members. Our goal is election by the many, not selection by a few.

Rep. Brendan Boyle

Representative Brendan Boyle, from Pennsylvania’s 13th congressional district, will be the special guest at this year’s fundraiser for the Haverford Township Democratic Party.  Rep. Boyle, one of just five Democrats in Pennsylvania’s 18-member congressional delegation, will talk about what it’s like doing the people’s business in Washington, D.C. these days.  Known as an advocate for income equality and universal health care, Rep. Boyle is a reminder of what the congressional delegation from our Democratic-majority state could look like … without gerrymandering! 

This fundraiser provides crucial operating funds for the Democratic Party and will replenish the campaign coffers that our local party contributed to our 2017 commissioner candidate races.

If you can come and write a $1,000 check, we’ll break out in song and name you a “Host” of the event!  Requested donations range down from that generous amount to $250 for Sponsors or $100 for Supporters. HT Democratic Committee people and members of H-CAN are invited to attend for $50.   

Come and enjoy the hospitality of Arlin and Paula Yudenfriend Green, meet other Democrats, and get acquainted with Rep. Boyle, one of our state’s few Democratic champions in D.C.
