Marseglia & Galloway for Commissioners

Commissioner Diane Marseglia to run with Falls Township Supervisor Brian Galloway

For Immediate Release February 20, 2015

BUCKS COUNTY – Today, Diane Marseglia announced that she will be running for a third term as Bucks County Commissioner with running mate, Brian Galloway, a Falls Township Supervisor.

“I’m excited to announce that I’m seeking a third term as Bucks County Commissioner,” said Marseglia. “Serving as Commissioner has been a great honor and I look forward to running an aggressive re-election campaign.”

Marseglia continued, “It’s not always easy to serve as the minority Commissioner on a three-member board, so I am thrilled to have a strong, qualified running mate this year in Brian Galloway, who I believe gives us our best shot in decades at a Democratic majority.”

Brian Galloway has taught in Bristol Township schools for 17 years and is currently in his second year as acting principal of Mary Devine Elementary in Croydon. For six years Brian has served as the Director of the Bucks County St. Patrick’s Day Parade, one of the County’s largest community events.. He is in his fourth year as Falls Township Supervisor where he serves on the Police Pension Advisory Board and The Community Economic Development Commission. Brian graduated from Pennsbury, served in the Navy, and has a Master’s from Temple University. A lifelong Falls Township resident, Brian, one of ten siblings, has been married 25 years to his wife Theresa. They have two children, Rosaleen and Joseph.

“I’m very much looking forward to running on the ticket with Commissioner Marseglia,” said Galloway. “And to be clear, we’re running to win.”

“From my years as an educator, I have seen first-hand, the struggles of our middle class Bucks County families,” Galloway continued. “If I was Commissioner, my focus would be squarely on their welfare, not on building an $85 million dollar courthouse and a $20 million parking garage. Those kind of misplaced priorities have put Bucks County families in distress.”

A Marseglia-Galloway administration would return the priorities of Bucks County government to creating more opportunities for the middle class.

“It’s been 28 years of one-party, Republican rule on the Board of Commissioners. Brian and I represent the possibility of real change for Bucks County and we’ll be strongly making our case to Bucks County voters throughout this campaign.” concluded Marseglia.

A New Year’s Eve Message from Chairman John Cordisco

Friends,

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!

Sincerely,
John Cordisco
Chairman, Bucks County Democratic Committee
