West Whiteland Democrats

CHANGE TO MONTHLY MEETING SCHEDULE

Based on input from the participants in our monthly meeting, the meeting time has changed from the 3rd Wednesday of every month to the 3rd Thursday.  Details are shown below under WHO WE ARE.  Contact us if you have any questions or want to attend.

PETITION SIGNING OUTDOOR EVENT

WW Dems will be participating in an outdoor Petition Signing Event to help candidates to get their names onto primary ballots. Each candidate is responsible for getting a certain number of signatures of registered voters to qualify. We usually go door to door in addition to having a gathering, but with COVID, the importance of this event is greater. The whole process should take you 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of people who show up.

We will be meeting at Boot Road Park (110 Boot Rd) from 1-4 on Saturday, February 27. If there is bad weather, the event will be moved to Sunday, February 28. Here's a link for directions:

We will have single use pens, but bringing your own will be helpful. Contact us if you have any questions.

CANDIDATES RUNNING IN NEXT PRIMARY

We have set up a Candidates page with information about candidates running in the upcoming primary election.  After our local convention, we will focus on endorsed candidates.  For now, we will provide information about the evolving field of contenders.


NEED CANDIDATES FOR OPEN OFFICES!

As we have seen in the recent election, having Democrats in positions locally is key to protecting our ability to protect the gains we've made and to promote the Democratic agenda.  Candidates are needed in some key elections coming up in 2021!  We have provided information about duties, term of office, qualifications for interested parties for the following:

  • West Chester Area School District - School Board - 4 positions open
  • Judge of Elections - All Precincts in Zone 14
  • Inspector of Elections - All Precincts in Zone 14
  • Committee Person - Precincts 1 and 7
  • Tax Collector

As another resource, the PADems have established an arrangement with an organization called Contest Every Race. This organization provides assistance in identifying candidates for Township Supervisor, Borough Council, Mayor, School Board, Auditor and Tax Collector races.  This service was used by about 30 Pennsylvania counties in 2019. They were able to identify 250 candidates for various races, 155 of whom won in November.

A description of how the process works can be found at www.contesteveryrace.com

There also are unelected volunteer openings on the History Advisory Board and Friends of the Park.  Visit https://www.westwhiteland.org/DocumentCenter/View/228/Volunteer-Committee-Application-PDF?bidId=

Contact us if you have any questions about the open positions!



WHO WE ARE

We are the West Whiteland Democratic Committee.  Our mission is to elect qualified Democrats to local, state, and federal offices and to enable our neighbors to realize their full potential through good government. As members of the Chester County Democratic Committee (CCDC) and the Pennsylvania Democratic Party (PA Dems), we seek to develop, advocate and elect qualified candidates that mirror our community’s democratic values of freedom, opportunity, transparency, and equality. We will vigorously campaign and influence changes to enhance everyone’s quality of life in our neighborhoods, schools, parks, courts and beyond.

We meet every third THURSDAY of the month at 7PM.  We currently meet via Zoom link.  Once we start to meet in person again, we will meet at the West Whiteland Township Building (101 Commerce Drive, Exton, PA 19341).  Start to get involved by contacting us today!
