Although the Presidential Election overshadows the election cycle in 2020, don't forget that there are vitally important elections at the State level this year.
It is so important to ensure that the results of the 2018 elections are not overturned and that our candidates for the PA State positions and the PA Senate are elected. Even if you are not yet sure of the Presidential Candidate for whom you will vote, remember our candidates for the elections for our congressional representative, our State positions and our State House and Senate representatives.
A recent Delco Dems Endorsement Convention voted to endorse the following candidates for the primary elections:

The 2019 elections resulted in all our candidates for Delaware County Council and for judges of the Court of Common Pleas being elected.
The Delaware County Council is now 100% Democrat!
Christine Reuther, Elaine Schaefer, and Monica Taylor join Brian Zidek and Kevin Madden on the Council
There are now 4 Democrat Judges on the Court - Kelly Eckel, Nusrat Rashid, Stephanie Klein and Rick Lowe.
In Rose Valley, Judith Voet and Dave Firn were re-elected to the Borough Council.
In addition, Michele Downey and Larry Kutys were elected to the Wallingford / Swarthmore school board.
The 2019 elections for County Council and the Court of Common Pleas have once again demonstrated the energy and interest in local politics that has arisen after the 2016 election results. There were 10 candidates for the four judge positions and 11 for the three Council places. This is unprecedented in the history of Delaware County and illustrates that "all politics is local". Besides, the future candidates for State and National House and Senate seats generally start gaining their experience at the local level - to ensure good candidates for Washington in the future, we should be looking for good candidates for our local councils now.
