Chairman's Message

Dear Friends of the Radnor Community:

On Tuesday, November 3rd, I am voting for Donald J. Trump and Michael R. Pence for President and Vice President of the United States, and I urge you to do the same. They have delivered on their promises to the American people and will continue to do so in a second term. The promises kept include:

  • Tax and regulatory reform that revived the American economy and lifted 4.2 million Americans out of poverty, restored American manufacturing, produced record employment and generated record wage growth in the lowest two income brackets.

  • America First military and foreign policy. Rebuilding our military, defeating ISIS (remember them), strengthening NATO and making the world a safer place; independence from Mideast oil, creating more allies and more peace alliances in the region; and extracting America from subordinating our national interests to the Iranian “deal” and the Paris Climate Accords (we reduced carbon emissions more than any nation in the world after leaving!).

  • Rebalancing the power of our three branches of government by appointing originalist judges and justices to the Federal courts – forcing congress to make laws rather than relinquish their jobs in favor of activist judges. I’d vote Trump on the Amy Barrett nomination alone!

  • A COVID response that included: fast tracking therapeutics; Operation Warp Speed to develop vaccines in one-third the normal time; the CARES act to fund businesses and local governments through the crisis; and the foresight to close our borders to more infections from Europe and Asia prior to the experts recognizing the need to do so.

  • The list of policy achievements is long: Criminal justice reform; immigration; trade; replacing NAFTA with USMCA; Mideast peace deals; etc.

It is obvious to everyone that Joe Biden is a shell of his former self, who has neither the energy, the will nor the ability to stand up to the leftists who now control the Democrat party.

Yup, I’ll put up with a few “un-Presidential” tweets if Trump-Pence can deliver half as much in a second term as they did in the first. Policy over personality.
State and local races will affect your quality of life in Pennsylvania and Delaware County, and the difference between the Republican candidates and their Democrat opponents is vast.

For example, Republican Bob Smythe is a classroom teacher and first responder who knows how to safely open our schools and businesses. His opponent is a progressive partisan who sided with the Wolf administration at every turn and on every progressive policy. 

Our Attorney General candidate, Republican Heather Heidelbaugh, is one of the most respected litigators in the state, with a compelling personal story of breaking barriers and personal triumph. Heather will restore the state Attorney General’s office to its mission of protecting and defending Pennsylvania’s citizens. Her Soros-backed opponent has politicized the office and used our tax dollars to sue the Little Sisters of the Poor. C’mon, man!

Our excellent local Republican candidates each deserves your consideration and your vote: Dasha Pruett, a survivor of Soviet Socialism for US Congress in the 5th PA District; educator and business leader Ellen Fisher for 17th PA Senate; firefighter and classroom teacher Bob Smythe for the 165th PA House District; and attorney Christine Boyle for the 166th PA House District. Each of these hard-working candidates has a compelling personal story of overcoming hardship and succeeding in serving your community. Learn more about each of their campaigns and life stories at the links below.


The arbitrary lockdowns and business closures by the Wolf administration bring focus to the importance of our state “row” offices. Be sure to cast your vote for: Heather Heidelbaugh for Attorney General; Tim DeFoor for Auditor General; and Stacy Garrity for Treasurer.

Learn more about them at

Whether voting by mail or in-person at your polling place, you should be aware that there is no longer “straight ticket” voting by party in Pennsylvania. You must choose each individual candidate for each office on your ballot. Your quality of life depends on it.

On November 3rd, regardless of party affiliation, you will be proud to have voted for these outstanding and competent candidates for state and federal public office. Please email if you need assistance or have any questions.

Voting Information and Sample Ballots
Things to remember when voting in the 2020 General Election: As we are all aware, voting rules have change significantly in Pennsylvania, and we list some of them below. Delaware County has an excellent website ( with all of the rules and voting options available. I think most if not all questions can be answered there.

Key Points to Remember:

  1. Be patient – our volunteer staff of Radnor residents who run the polling places have a lot of uncertainty to manage on election day, as well as learning the new machines and operating within CDC COVID protocols. Thank them all, as I do, for serving our community.
  2. If you did not request nor receive a mail-in or absentee ballot, you will vote at your precinct polling place as always – some locations have changed, as noted below.
  3. If you received a mail-in or absentee ballot and have not returned it, you can mail it or deposit it in one of the county “drop boxes” before 8 PM on November 3rd. There is a county drop box at the Radnor Township Building, and others can be found here.
  4. If you requested a mail-in ballot but did not receive a mail-in ballot, you can vote “provisionally” at your polling location.
  5. If you received your mail-in or absentee ballot, but intend to vote in person, you can do so, but must bring your ballot and the envelopes with you to the polling place, and the Judge of Elections can “spoil” your mail-in ballot and issue you a regular ballot.
  6. Fun Facts:
  • 10,500 Radnor voters have requested mail-in/absentee ballots, which is approximately 55% of all registered voters.
  • Countywide, 156,000 mail-in ballots have been issued: 64% of mail-in requests were by Democrats; 24% by Republicans; and 12% by Independents.
Polling Locations: Because of the ongoing pandemic, certain polling locations in Radnor have been changed. Here are the polling locations for the general election.

  • Radnor Ward 1, Precinct 1: Wayne Presbyterian Church
  • Radnor Ward 1, Precinct 2: Wayne Presbyterian Church
  • Radnor Ward 2, Precinct 1: Radnor High School
  • Radnor Ward 2, Precinct 2: Radnor Elementary School
  • Radnor Ward 2, Precinct 3: Wayne Presbyterian Church (NEW LOCATION)
  • Radnor Ward 3, Precinct 1: Radnor Activity Center at Sulpizio Gym (NEW LOCATION)
  • Radnor Ward 3, Precinct 2: St. Mary's Episcopal Church
  • Radnor Ward 4, Precinct 1: Ithan Elementary School
  • Radnor Ward 4, Precinct 2: Ithan Elementary School (NEW LOCATION)
  • Radnor Ward 5, Precinct 1: Sacred Heart Academy (NEW LOCATION)
  • Radnor Ward 5, Precinct 2: St. Aloysius Academy
  • Radnor Ward 6, Precinct 1: Radnor Memorial Library
  • Radnor Ward 6, Precinct 2: Radnor Township Building
  • Radnor Ward 7, Precinct 1: Rosemont Plaza
  • Radnor Ward 7, Precinct 2: Radnor Methodist Church
Sample Ballots: Sample Republican ballots will be available from Republican party representatives at your polling location, but you may also download your sample ballot below. If you don't know what ward and precinct you live in, or you need to know where your polling place is, find out here.
President Trump Begins Closing Argument at PA Campaign Stops
In one of his four campaign stops in Pennsylvania over the weekend, President Trump said Joe Biden had "twisted his knife into the backs" of Pennsylvania when it came to manufacturing in the Keystone State, and he announced he had signed an executive order to protect fracking.
Trump tells PA it can 'save the American Dream'

He presented the election as a choice between being ruled by a “corrupt political class” or government by the people.

On the Lighter Side: Joe Biden walks into a bank
Biden walks into a bank to cash a check.
As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning, Ma'am, could you please cash this check for me?"
Cashier: "It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?"
Biden: "Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am Joe Biden, the former Vice President of the United States of America!!!!"
Cashier: "Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the banking legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID.
Biden: "Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am."
Cashier: "I am sorry, Mr. Biden, but these are the bank rules and I must follow them."
Biden: "My goodness. I am urging you, please, to cash this check."
Cashier: "Look Mr. Biden, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check.
Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racket and made a fabulous shot; the tennis ball landed in my coffee cup. With that shot we cashed his check.
So, Mr. Biden, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you?"
Biden stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, "Honestly, my mind is a total blank, I have absolutely no idea what to do, I don't have a clue."
Cashier: "Will that be large or small bills, Mr. Biden."
