Happy New Year

A New Year’s Eve Message from Chairman John Cordisco


I hope this message finds you well and that you and your families have had an enjoyable holiday season. On this New Year’s Eve, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past year.

2014 was an important, transformational year for the Bucks County DemocraticCommittee.  We took a big step forward by hiring our first full-time, professional Executive Director. We moved the BCDC headquarters to a beautiful new location at the corner of Broad and Main in Doylestown. Along with the move, we undertook a major rebranding effort, adopting a new logo, building a new website, and revamping our social media presence. And in the general election, we rolled out a brand-new, outside-the-box GOTV strategy, designed to expand the Democratic electorate and give our Democratic candidates a stronger base of support in the coming cycles.

On the fundraising front, our annual Jefferson Dinner was one of the most successful ever. We’ve also  launched The Chairman’s Club, our new capital fundraising initiative, a monthly contribution program dedicated to the sustainability and day-to-day operation of the BCDC. Please consider signing up here to join our efforts.

With a continuation of our programs from 2014, I believe the BCDC will enter 2015 stronger and more prepared than we’ve ever been to take on the great task of turning Bucks blue.

We’re excited about how far we’ve come, but there is plenty of work yet to be done, and we need your help. To that end, we are actively recruiting new committee members to grow our organization. If you or someone you know is interested in joining the BCDC or running for municipal office in 2015, please call Eric at HQ 215-348-2140.

Thank you for all you do to support our committee, our Democratic candidates, and our progressive values. Please have a safe, happy New Year and I’ll look forward to working with you in 2015!

An Election Eve message from Chairman John Cordisco

Friends and fellow Democrats,

DSC_7092You already know this, but it bears repeating: tomorrow is a critical election. The stakes are high throughout the country, the Commonwealth, and our Bucks County. Republicans are already measuring the drapes, but I’ve got news for them. They haven’t heard from us yet.

We are poised to make history tomorrow, when we will send Tom Wolf to the Governor’s mansion in Harrisburg and send Tom Corbett packing. Tom Wolf and our nominee for Lieutenant Governor, Mike Stack, represent something we desperately need in Pennsylvania – a fresh start.

And we have real opportunities in other races down the ballot right here in Bucks County.

For US Congress, we are lucky to have a gifted nominee Kevin Strouse. Kevin’s background as a combat veteran, CIA operative, and father to two small children, strikes the perfect balance of the kind of tactical, thoughtful individual we should strive to have represent us in Washington

Around Bucks County, we are locked in tight races for the State House and State Senate. I know that you will return Steve Santarsiero in the 31st, John Galloway in the 140th, and Tina Davis in the 141st to the State House and I hope you will send them some Democratic reinforcements: from the 142nd, Gina Kiley and from the 145th, Karen Chellew.

For the State Senate, we have four great candidates vying to unseat longtime, entrenched Republican incumbents. Our Democratic candidates, Kim Rose in the 6th, Steve Cickay in the 10th, Ruth Damsker in the 12th, and Jack Hansen in the 24th also deserve your vote tomorrow.

It’s simple: Republicans like Tom Corbett could win because Democrats don’t vote. If we want to Turn Bucks Blue, we can’t let that happen.

Please make a plan to be a voter tomorrow.
