A message from the Chair

John Cordisco.Friends,

On Sunday, I had the privilege to welcome a wonderful family of Syrian refugees to Bucks County at Newtown Friends Meeting on behalf of the Bucks County Democratic Committee. While they were safe, many like them face a far less-certain fate thanks to Trump’s reckless and inhumane ban. These families and refugees deserve better in America.

Fortunately, and rightly, a federal judge issued a stay to Trump’s order. I was proud of our own Pennsylvania Democrats – Senator Bob Casey and Governor Tom Wolf – who showed tremendous bravery and leadership by going to the airport on Saturday night to welcome refugees to our Commonwealth. Those are the type of people I want leading our nation, our state, and our party. Solidarity is proving to be the antidote to extremism and isolationism.

Since the beginning of year, I have traveled to many of our party’s local organization meetings. I have been encouraged and energized by the overwhelming turnout at these meetings from every corner of Bucks County. One thing is abundantly clear to me: the time for action is now. Whether you’re an activist or a community volunteer; a journalist or a politician; retired or a student – we are all Americans.

Over the coming weeks, you will hear more from the Bucks County Democratic Committee about the formation of a Rapid Response Team to allow the party to combat the Trump administration locally through messaging and rallies.

Friends, we’re all in this together. We need capable people to take on our cause. We must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, like the Syrian family I met on Sunday.  If you want to oppose this administration’s policies, get involved in our party. Better yet, run for office. The most effective way to advocate on behalf of an issue is to do so from a position of authority. After 2016’s election, the pendulum of power is due to swing back to the Democratic party. But you can’t win if you don’t run.

And while, as the Chairman of the Democratic Party in Bucks County, I advocate on behalf of our brand, and indeed, our candidates, the task which we face collectively is not a partisan one. It is the cause of our lifetime – the protection of American values. I hope you will join us today.

Sincerely,
John Cordisco Signature
John Cordisco
Chairman, Bucks County Democratic Committee
