Chairman's Message

Dear Radnor Republicans and Friends:

I hope you are all maintaining your safety and your sanity and a positive attitude amidst all of the chaos fomented by leftists as well as the personal and professional challenges brought on by COVID-19 and our economic shutdown. Brighter days are ahead, and I am reminded that our Conservative values of individual liberty, personal responsibility and limited national government will be critical to the restoration of our economy and civil debate.

Full results of the election in the county and by precinct can be found at the Delco Board of Elections site ( www.delcopa.gov/electionsbureau/index.html).

In our single contested race, the 5 th Congressional District primary, Dasha Pruett handily beat Rob Jordan and will take on the socialist Mary Gay Scanlon in the fall. Congratulations, Dasha! President Trump, Vice President Pence and Dasha will lead the ticket in the general election, followed by our exceptional candidates for State row offices:  Heather Heidelbaugh – State AG; Tim Defoor – Auditor General; and Stacy Garrity – Treasurer. More information on each of these candidates is available at www.pagop.org/meet-our-2020-candidates .

Locally, Ellen Fisher is running for the 17 th State Senate District; Rob Smythe is our candidate in the 165 th State House District; and Christine Boyle is running against Greg Vitali in the 166 th House District. Excellent candidates all, and each of whom you will be proud to support and assist as the campaign progresses.

Last and certainly not least, our own Leslie Morgan won election as a delegate to the Republican National Convention, where she will be joined by Val Biancaniello of Marple and Joan Miller of Haverford as the 5 th Congressional District delegates.

I had the opportunity to witness the election process up close and can tell you that the mail-in voting process mandated by the state and implemented by the county was chaotic and could have been disastrous. It took Delco nearly two weeks to certify the election results, and challenges remain. Massive mail-in voting without process and control to ensure ballot validity creates the opportunity for voter fraud. Pennsylvania in general, and Delco in particular, remain unable to manage massive mail-in voting and should return to the more traditional absentee process in the fall General Election. You will note below an initiative from Radnor’s Wally Zimolong to coordinate legal resources to oversee the election process in the November.

Long-time Radnorite and Republican Committee member Mike D’Amicantonio has joined the Trump election campaign in PA as a regional coordinator for our area. A note of introduction from Mike is also below in the newsletter.

One final word about the Primary Election. Our elections and polling places are run by our friends and neighbors who volunteer their time and talent to ensure – at least in Radnor – that our elections are run by the rules and with fairness. I am so proud of the manner in which our Republican Judges of Election and their boards of inspectors, machine operators and volunteers demonstrated great leadership and service on Primary Day, by taking a chaotic process received from the State and County, and creating a safe, effective and fair election day in Radnor. They need your help and assistance in November, to help staff our polling places in what will likely be a very busy election day. Please let us know if we can count on you to help and serve your community on election day in November by contacting us at volunteer@RadnorGOP.org.

The Show Must Go On…but Only for Governor Wolf
From PA GOP Chairman Lawrence J. Tabas :
 
Governor Wolf’s coronavirus hypocrisy is nationally known at this point, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. 
State Health Secretary Rachel Levine sued Carlisle Events for having too many individuals registered to attend their annual car show. Sec. Levine cited the Carlisle show was violating the 250-person cap on gatherings within the state. Interesting, because I don’t recall Sec. Levine reminding Gov. Wolf of this “250-person cap” when he decided to parade the streets of Harrisburg shoulder to shoulder with protesters.
Sec. Levine threatened if Carlisle Events didn’t comply, they would be met with “criminal and civil penalties.” Again, interesting how Sec. Levine is quick to call on the support of law enforcement, while the trusty Gov. Wolf was photographed two weeks earlier with signs that read “BLUE LIVES MURDER.” 

So which is it? Will the left come crawling to law enforcement when it’s convenient to them? Or will they protest in the streets and call police officers murderers?

On the Lighter Side: Pelosi Wants to Lower the Voting Age
Watch here.
Protecting Against Abuse of PA's Mail-In Voting Process
On Primary Day, I saw first-hand the debacle of mail-in balloting and the potential disaster that awaits in November. Mail in voting is a Petri dish for voter fraud, and the Democrats will take full advantage of it.

The Trump campaign has identified Pennsylvania, especially counties in the Southeast, like Delaware County, as a place were this could happen. The Trump campaign has a team of national election law experts at the ready should Pennsylvania become like Florida in 2000. But those folks will need to team with local attorneys to help in these actions.

Throughout the summer, we are working on building this team of local lawyers. If you or anyone you know are interested in helping the Trump campaign as an attorney, please contact me at wally@zimolonglaw.com . The only criteria are that you be licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and support the President. We also have a Facebook page that we ask you to join as well.

Toomey Calls Out Senate Democrats
From PA GOP Chairman Lawrence J. Tabas :
 
Senate Democrats blocked Senator Tim Scott’s (R-SC) Justice Act Wednesday from even being considered in the Senate. U.S. Senator Pat Toomey called out Senate Democrats for choosing politics over progress, since they are not even letting a legislative discussion begin on the Justice Act. 

Senate Democrats have spent the past couple weeks demanding policing reforms. Now that a bill was introduced, they chose to obstruct it rather than have actual bipartisan discussions to amend it. It is clear they only want to complain instead of work out actual results between both parties.

Meet Ellen Fisher, the Republican Candidate for State Senate in District 17
Ellen Fisher has lived in Havertown, PA for most of her life. In fact, she lives in the same home in which she grew up. She graduated from Haverford High School, the same school where she and her husband of 36 years sent their two children. She received her BA in Labor Studies from Penn State University. Upon graduation she returned to her hometown where she started her own successful business.

Ellen’s past, present and future are deeply rooted in this community—and the community’s priorities are her priorities.

Community is an important value to Ellen and is why she remains involved. She has touched organizations focused on education, small businesses and gender diversity. Ellen is the founder and publisher of the Women’s Yellow Pages , an award-winning resource of women-owned businesses in the Delaware Valley. She is the co-founder, former president, and current board member of the Haverford Township School District Education Foundation , executive director of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), a year-long program for middle and high school students that helps them start their own businesses, and the co-founder of the Women’s Business Enterprise Center .

Please check her out on www.EllenforPA.com and   LinkedIn , and follow her on Facebook to see how we can take back this seat.
On the Lighter Side: Insanity
The following was copied from Facebook. We could not determine who the author is, but perhaps it will resonate with you as it did with us!

I can’t keep up. I just can’t. I’m exhausted trying to figure out what we’re all supposed to do, believe, and be outraged by next.

Two months ago First Responders were all the rage. In fact, they were heroes. Today we hate them and want them defunded because they can’t be trusted.

Nurses and Doctors are still cool for now. Unless of course they truly believe all lives matter. Then they’re filled with hate and are part of problem like so many others.

Just 45 days ago protests weren’t “essential” and were considered criminal, selfish and a murderous activity. Today they’re gloriously critical and celebrated. All of the obvious criminal and murderous activities are simply ignored. If you protest about lockdowns for freedom you’re selfish and you’ll spread a virus. If you protest, loot, and riot for social justice you’re a warrior and the virus cedes.

Trust the experts. No, not those experts. Don’t wear masks, wear masks-but only good ones, don’t wear masks, wear anything as a mask, nevermind on the masks. Not sure, but if you don’t, you hate people because you could be an asymptomatic spreader. Wait. That's not a thing anymore?

For 3 months NOTHING was more important than Social Distance, in fact, we gave up all of our liberties for it. We canceled schools, medical procedures, activities, closed businesses, eliminated every spring rite of passage from prom to graduation, denied people funerals EVEN AT ARLINGTON and wrecked the economy for it. Then came Social Justice and Social Distance was no more. Now things are more cut and dry though. A thousand people at three memorials for someone they never even met? Sure thing. It's a matter of "respect".

Black Lives Matter. OK, let’s do it. Then multiple black police officers and individuals were killed during the “peaceful protests” and I don’t see any outrage. Black individually owned businesses burned to the ground. Silence. Deadliest weekend in Chicago. NOTHING!!

I’m really confused now. Look at the data, NO, not that data. Do the math. No, you can’t do the math like that. Only the experts can understand the data. What do you mean other cities/states/governors are interpreting the data differently? Pools are safe in Indiana, but not Michigan? Playgrounds are safe in your town but not mine? Amusement parks are safe in FL but not OH?

Just listen to the black community leaders. No, not them.

If you’re silent you’re part of the problem, if you speak you’re part of the problem. If you have to ask you don’t understand. If you don’t ask, you don’t care.

It’s all so predictable, tedious, and exhausting. Nothing adds up. It’s one gigantic common core life problem with ever changing denominators that I’m sure the media and politicians are eagerly ready to solve for us....until the next "crisis".
