Chairman's Message

Happy Holidays to our Radnor Friends and Neighbors,

As a tumultuous 2020 comes to a close, I hope that you can each reflect on the many blessings that you have and the hope for a return to some level of normalcy in 2021. Please also remember in your thoughts and prayers those who are suffering from physical and mental health issues and economic losses during the pandemic.

Many of us remain frustrated and confused by the November election results. It is indisputable that Pennsylvania’s election was chaotic, fraught with irregularities and lessened everyone’s confidence in the integrity of how the election was conducted. The state must correct the deviations from election law allowed by the State Supreme Court and the Secretary of State. At the local level, we petitioned the Delco Court of Common Pleas to recanvass and recount several Radnor precincts. Inexplicably, the judge ruled against this very reasonable petition to actually count the paper ballots.

In 2021, we must focus our attention on state and local candidates and matters. Following, President Trump’s victory in 2016, PA Democrats held a majority of Justices on the State Supreme Court, who, by fiat, changed our electoral map and our election process. At the local level, Democrats took control of the Radnor School Board. The once bi-partisan organization now seeks to implement a progressive agenda, rather than focus on improving education. We have the opportunity to make meaningful, electoral gains at the local, county and state offices in order to reverse these trends.

The Radnor GOP is seeking candidates for local office, including School Board Directors and the many Judges and Inspectors required for our Radnor Boards of Election. More information on the positions is included in this newsletter below. We had many who participated in our School Board Director information session two weeks ago.

Interested candidates with inquiries for any of the positions noted should email us at info@RadnorGOP.org. Many thanks to several of you who have already done so! In order to be considered for School Board, candidates must submit a resume and letter of interest to info@RadnorGOP.org not later than Friday, January 15, 2021.

My best wishes to all for a healthy and happy holiday and New Year!
Howard Gartland
Chairman
Radnor Republican Committee
Seeking Candidates for 2021
The Radnor GOP is looking for people interested in becoming School Board Directors and “official poll workers” in 2021. There will be four School Board Director positions on the ballot in 2021, as well as the Judge of Elections and Majority and Minority Inspectors in each of our 15 precincts. More information on the positions is available below.

If you are interested in running or have any questions, please email us at info@RadnorGOP.org. Candidates must submit a resume and letter of interest to info@RadnorGOP.org not later than Friday, January 15, 2021.

SCHOOL BOARD DIRECTORS

The Pennsylvania School Boards Association publishes a handy guide, "How to Run for School Board: A Guide for School Board Candidates in Pennsylvania," available here.
 
JUDGE OF ELECTIONS
 
The Judge of Elections is in charge of all Election Day activities and personnel inside the polls, including the Constable. The Judge opens and closes the polls and is responsible for the paperwork as well as pick up and return of election supplies to the County Election Bureau.
 
MAJORITY INSPECTOR
 
The Majority Inspector will assist the Judge of Elections and share responsibility for the operation of the polling site. Along with the Minority Inspector, this inspector will manage the poll books and assist voter sign-in and delivery of ballots to eligible voters.
 
MINORITY INSPECTOR
 
The Minority Inspector is of the opposing political party of the Judge and will help ensure bi-partisan representation on the local election board. The Minority Inspector has the same responsibilities as the Majority Inspector. In addition, the Minority Inspector is expected to appoint a Minority Clerk and sign the provisional ballot envelope. The Minority Inspector will also receive “Envelope B” on election night. This contains a copy of the election results and numbered list of voters. The Minority Inspector must keep this record of election day in the sealed envelope for two years.

"Canceling Christmas is not the answer”
[This content is shared from the PA GOP]

Governor Wolf is trying to cancel Christmas. Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff said it best: “Pennsylvanians are smart and compassionate. By now, they know how to keep themselves, their loved ones and their neighbors safe. They are capable, and deserving, of celebrating Christmas safely.”
 
Rep. Benninghoff continued: “I recognize we are facing a serious resurgence of COVID-19 and our health care systems are struggling to keep up with the increased demand; however, job-crushing, harmful government mandates are not the answer. Canceling Christmas is not the answer.” We could not have said it better. Allow citizens the ability to make their own decisions.

On the Lighter Side: Transitions
When Democrats have nothing better to do...
[This content is shared from the PA GOP]

Families and citizens have suffered in different ways, so it makes sense that Democrats would focus on something absolutely irrelevant: Decriminalizing marijuana. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats passed a bill Wednesday to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. Businesses are closing their doors for good, students are forced to adapt to learning remotely, many people have lost loved ones from COVID-19 but don’t worry -- Nancy Pelosi is prioritizing the legalization of marijuana. We should expect nothing more from the do-nothing Democrats. 
 
This blatant neglect of real-world issues has been going on in Pennsylvania for a while by our statewide officials. Case in point: Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, Gov. Wolf’s right-hand man, tweets nearly every day about decriminalizing marijuana in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. While Gov. Wolf was putting COVID-19 patients in nursing homes, his sidekick was tweeting about the urgent need to legalize marijuana. This is insulting to all those who have suffered during these trying times.

Speaker Cutler stands up for voters
[This content is shared from the PA GOP]

The PA Legislature is laying down the law. Republican leaders sent a series of letters to other elected officials, which detailed Pennsylvanians’ concerns over the 2020 election. These letters went to PA’s congressional delegation, attorney general and inspector general. Through this, the end goal is to restore trust in our election process that was so badly damaged by Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar.
 
We are grateful for our leaders in PA's House and Senate for standing up for the voices of the Commonwealth. This is the beginning of a long way to go in restoring integrity to Pennsylvania’s elections.

On the Lighter Side: Six Conundrums of Socialism in the USA
  1. America is capitalist and greedy, yet half of the population is subsidized.
  2. Half of the population is subsidized, yet they think they are victims.
  3. They think they are victims, yet their representatives run the government.
  4. Their representatives run the government, yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  5. The poor keep getting poorer, yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
  6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about, yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. Makes you wonder who is doing the math.
