Chairman's Message

Dear Radnor Republicans and Friends:

We should all be proud of our exceptional candidates for School Board, Township Commissioner and County Elected Offices. They are each exceptional individuals who volunteered to serve our community. For that we should all be grateful.

Unfortunately, the blue wave that has rolled through suburban counties and municipalities did not spare Radnor. Republican turn-out was very good for a municipal election – by my estimates about 35%; however, Democrats continue to be more motivated, with an estimated turnout of closer to 50% in Radnor. Democrats hold a significant registration advantage in Radnor as well – approximately 9,200 Democrats to 7,600 Republicans. On Election Day approximately 4,900 Democrats and 2,800 Republicans voted, and therefore the results, which had all five Democrats winning School Board seats, giving the Democrats a 9-0 advantage on the School Board for the next two years.

Similarly, our three competitive commissioner races in the Wards 1, 3 and 7 saw Democrat victories as they averaged a 40% increase in votes received as compared to the 2015 election. Republican Tim Frey in the Ward 7 saw the biggest Republican vote increase, with about 20% more than the Republican candidate received four years prior.

Countywide saw a similar trend, with increased turn-out from both parties, but a higher increase in Democrat turn-out to go along with their registration advantage. Sadly, both Radnor residents Kat Copeland and Steve Gerber lost their races despite out-polling all Republicans who had won in prior years for these positions. Our county District Attorney-elect, a leftist supported by George Soros, will now bring “social justice” to our county’s top prosecutor’s office, potentially lowering quality of life for all of us.

Our committee people, election board officials and many volunteers contributed greatly to Election Day and the many weeks of hard work leading up to Election Day. I can’t thank each enough for what they contribute to our township and to our party.

Full results for the county, township and school board races can be found here.

The bottom line? Turnout is important, both in local elections and in national elections.

A totally partisan school board and a highly partisan Board of Commissioners will not be healthy for the Radnor School District, nor for our Township. We Republicans will continue to put forth excellent candidates of high character and competence, and we’ll promote principals and policies which demonstrate good governance, transparency and accountability in our elected officials.

All of our candidates enjoyed their engagement with our community and getting more deeply involved in the affairs of our town and our school district. I am confident that each of them will remain engaged, and that will benefit us all. A big “thank-you” from us all, to School Board candidates Chuck Madden, Mike Miller, Laura Foran, Matt Mabe and Ben Sydnes and to Commissioner candidates Bill Morrissey, Tim Lowry and Tim Frey.

Honoring Our Outgoing School Board Directors
 
This Tuesday, November 19, will see the end of service of the four remaining Republicans on the Radnor School Board. There will be a presentation and recognition ceremony for the four of them at the beginning of the School Board meeting, which starts at 7 PM and is held in the Radnorshire Room of the Radnor Township Building.

We hope to see you there!
Good Governance Requires Transparency
 
At last week’s Board of Commissioners' meeting, Penn Medicine, which has business before the Board of Commissioners, donated $250,000 to the Township, which did not seem to follow proper procedures. You can watch the meeting here .
 
Good governance requires transparency and discussion before accepting donations from outside entities with interests before the Township.

Opinion | Eric Holder Takes Virginia

Mr. Holder’s plan to take over nearly a dozen more states next year is far from a fait accompli. Virginia was already trending blue, and he will face a harder task in other target states such as FL, GA and TX. But the threat to the GOP is real.
