Representing Chester Heights, Edgmont, Middletown, Thornbury, and Upper Providence, in Delaware County, PA
The blue wave rolls on…
Well done, Democrats! Motivated voters and strong turnout led to a Democratic sweep in countywide office. Read “Dems sweep all Delco council races in historic rout” in the Daily Times. Briefly, Democrats will have a 5-0 majority on County Council; the Delco Common Pleas bench will now have four Democratic judges; and Dem Jack Stollsteimer won the race for District Attorney.
More locally, our Mid-County Democratic candidates prevailed in several areas:
Congratulations to Rose Tree Media School Board winners Hillary Fletcher, Jackie Gusic, Shelly Hunt, Susan Layne, and Kelly Schaffer. The RTMSB is now completely Democratic!
Congratulations to our local municipal election winners:
- Susan Clarke - Chester Heights Borough Council
- Brett Burman - Edgmont Auditor (2-year term)
- Elgin Akarsoy and Kevin Else - Upper Providence Township Council. The Upper Providence Township Council is now majority Democratic!
Congratulations and deep appreciation for all 20 local candidates supported by the Mid-County Democratic Committee. We are proud of each and every one! They ran positive, informative campaigns with integrity—even while under attack by opponents resorting to deception, innuendo, and false claims. As Michelle Obama said: “When they go low, we go high.”

Many thanks to all who came out to vote. We are making historic gains in our communities and Delaware County as a whole. This bodes well for what we can do together in next year’s Presidential Election. For now, let’s take a moment to savor our wins; appreciate the efforts of all our candidates, who have walked hundreds of miles and knocked on thousands of doors; and commit to doubling down on our efforts in 2020.
