Welcome to Haverford Township’s 2018 Coordinated Campaign!
The national and state Democratic party organizations are truly investing in the grassroots in 2018. We have a real, live, full-time field director on the ground, helping us coordinate all six of our local campaigns. Her name is Brianna Cole. She is working out of Delco’s new, local headquarters: 130 South State Road, in Upper Darby.
Volunteering is Easy for 2018 ‘Wave’
Whether you want to volunteer 3 hours or 63 hours for the 2018 Democratic campaigns, just email your ward leader to get on the list of Dems who will hear about campaign activities.
- Ward leaders will coordinate with Brianna Cole, our field director.
- You will be able to sign up electronically for the activities, days, and times that suit you.
- Some activities will be in your ward, some will be elsewhere in Delco.
You can always consult our Events page to find campaign activities that need volunteers.
Investing in Democrats and Democracy
If we don’t want the wealthy to own our politics, we’ve gotta donate what we can.
EVERY candidate needs our donations to help run the campaign. Find the candidates’ websites on our 2018 Election page and click on their “donate” buttons. Give a little or a lot!
“Raising our Profile, Raising our Funds” is the Haverford Dems’ own fundraiser to make a splash at Haverford Township Day and make ourselves visible all over the township before the Nov. 6 election. Goal: $2,000. Donate whatever you can to raise our profile!

Township Commissioners Meetings
Our township commissioners are now meeting in the NEW Administration Building at 2014 Darby Road. Come check out the new space!
Haverford Township Commissioners hold a “working” meeting on the first Monday of the month and a “regular” meeting (where they vote) on the second Monday of each month, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Both meetings are open to the public.
Here’s the township's official calendar for all upcoming meetings, including the Zoning Board and Planning Commission meetings.
