The election is over and we are on to the next election. Can you believe we do elections every six months? The next one is less exciting to most, because it is the municipal elections. The primary is in a few short months in May 2015.
We will be looking for three candidates for Township Commissioner. This gives Democrats the opportunity to not only gain any representation on the Township Commission but potentially to elect a majority of the Commissioners. All Commissioner positions are at large which means they represent the whole township and not an individual precinct.
In addition we may elect a Constable. If you are interested you may read more here. http://www.pscpolice.org/
Let's take back our township:
For over thirty years Republicans have ruled the roost. They have held all five positions on the Board Of Commissioners. That's because Upper Gwynedd has a winner take all election process. So inspite of Upper Gwynedd being composed of over 40% democratic voters there is no representation on the Board Of Commssioners.
To accomplish this all we need is to get a greater turnout than we have customarily had.
To accomplish that we need your help. If you can, then please volunteer. If you cannot volunteer then please vote and convince your friends and neighbors to vote.
Pennsylvanians are ready for a fresh start, and I look forward to working with grassroots organizations like the Upper Gwynedd Democrats to make their voices heard. - Tom Wolf - Pennsylvania Governor-elect
I wish the Upper Gwynedd Democrats every success in their efforts to elect strong, Democratic leaders at the local, state and federal levels. Here's to a blue Upper Gwynedd in the months and years to come! - Allyson Schwartz, US Congresswoman, 13th District
We are starting to see democratic voters fight back all over the country and I am more optimistic than ever. It is at the municipal level that it all begins so I am happy to see Upper Gwynedd fighting for the hearts and minds of their voters and the progressive values they share. - Daylin Leach, Pennsylvania State Senator, 17th District
I am proud of the Upper Gwynedd Democrats. They are organized, mobilized and ready to win. . - Josh Shapiro, Montgomery County Commissioner
