Bucks County Democrats,
It has now been just over two weeks since Election Day, and I can only find three words to describe what took place that night — We did it! Thanks to countless volunteers, Committee People, Chairs, and campaign staff, we accomplished something that had not been achieved in over THREE DECADES in Bucks County. On January 6th, 2020, a Democratic majority Board of Commissioners will be sworn in at the County Courthouse to begin this new era in Bucks County history.
We first embarked on a program in 2015 to flip Bucks County. At that moment, of the 12 elected Countywide Row Officers, our Party held ONE (as in one more than zero). Even that statistic is misleading, as the minority Party is bound by law to have a representative on the Board of Commissioners. After this monumental 2019 Election cycle, we now hold TEN. These successes haven’t been limited to just County Races, either. Since 2015, we have flipped control of EIGHT municipalities. We’ve won over 250 municipal seats, flipping over 80 of them from Republican to Democratic hands. This doesn’t “just happen.” This isn’t just the product of a Blue Wave. These wins are the result of having a large group of dedicated people working tirelessly towards one goal. The strategy was correct. The execution was flawless. And the results prove that out.
Chairman’s Letter. Congratulations to the hard work that Bucks County Democrats has put forth. In 2017 Bucks County Democrats led the way with the most doors knocked than all the rest of Pennsylvania combined. This resulted in the Democrats taking Multiple Row Offices in seats they hadn’t held in over 30 years. It took years of organization and party building that had continued into 2018. We celebrated the victories of Steve Santarsiero in the States Senate District 10, Maria Collett in State Senate’s 12th District and Wendy Ullman State House of Representatives in District 143.
The 2019 election cycle is already in full swing and we are prepared for victory across the Local Districts and County. …. [READ MORE]
