LCDC Holiday Open House

 

I.                    Primary Election 2016

To old hands, it’s obvious, but to people new to politics, here’s how it works: To get on the ballot a candidate for office has to petition the Election Office. This petition has to have legitimate signatures (voters from their party, in the appropriate precinct, that have only signed the right amount of petitions for a particular position--usually one, and...well, there are a number of other requirements). Any of these signatures can be questioned and will be in a close race. A petition may need hundreds of good signatures to get on the ballot. Although it’s unlikely, even a major national candidate that’s on TV all the time will not get on the ballot of some states if he or she does not have enough good signatures to qualify.

 

The way these candidates get on the ballot, therefore, requires all of us who care about this campaign to get signatures for the people we want to get on the ballot and win. Not getting on the ballot makes it almost impossible to win. So, if you support any of these candidates (and we hope you support somebody!), please help them get on the ballot by getting signatures on the petitions of your candidates.

 

You’ll have a chance to learn more about the process, sign petitions and get petitions to take around if you come to the Heisey Diner this Wednesday, February 3 at 7 PM. (see above for details).

 

Here’s what we (the editors) know so far about this election. First, the positions we’ll be voting for:

 

A.    On April 26th, we will NOMINATE:

 

National positions:

President

US Senator

2 Congresspersons (6th and 15th district)

 

State positions:

Attorney General

Auditor General

State Treasurer

3 General Assembly Representatives (101st, 102nd, and 104th)

 

There’s also a Democratic Convention to nominate candidates for President and Vice-President and to vote on the party platform. This year, the Convention is in Philadelphia. To make that happen, we have to elect delegates from each Congressional district to go to this Convention. They are our representatives. So...

 

We will ELECT:

Party Offices - Democratic:

7 Delegates (3 male, 4 female) to the Democratic Convention from the 6th District

6 Delegates (3 male, 3 female) to the Democratic Convention from the 15th District

1 Alternate Delegate (female) to the Democratic Convention from the 6th District

1 Alternate Delegate (male) to the Democratic Convention from the 15th District

 

(FYI--Republicans will elect 12 delegates and 3 alternates from the two districts districts and all of their Lebanon County Republican Committee members)

 

B.    Democrats we know are running for these positions:

Because of the nature of politics, some people may be running for the Party’s nomination for some of these offices and have not publicized it openly (or at least not to US!). Consequently, this is a tentative list. And none of them will get on the ballot without thoroughly vetted petitions (see above).

 

With that caveat, here’s what we know about who’s running. We asked many of them if they would tell us a little something about themselves. You’ll see what we received at press time below.

 

    1.    US President

        a.    Hillary Clinton www.hillaryclinton.com

        

b.    Martin O’Malley https://martinomalley.com/

        

c.     Bernie Sanders www.berniesanders.com

 

2.    US Senate:

a.    Joe Sestak http://joesestak.com/

    Born and raised in Delaware County, former 3-star Admiral Joe Sestak served in the Navy for 31 years. He served as a Congressman for Pennsylvania’s 7th District from 2007-2011. As an Admiral, he led a series of operational commands at sea, including Commander of an aircraft carrier battle group of 30 U.S. and allied ships with over 15,000 sailors and 100 aircraft that conducted operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. After 9/11, Joe was the first Director of “Deep Blue,” the Navy’s anti-terrorism unit. He also served as President Clinton’s Director for Defense Policy at the National Security Council in the White House. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University.”

 

b.    Katie McGinty http://katiemcginty.com/

 

3.    US Congress     

  1. 6th District

1.    Joe Denham (can’t find a web presence yet)

 

2.    Lindy Li facebook.com/lindyforcongress/

 

3.    Michael D. Parrish parrishforcongress.com/

b.    15th District

1.    Rick Daugherty padems.com/team/rick-daugherty-cd-15

“Rick Daugherty is executive director of Lehigh Valley Active Life, a vibrant senior center.  He has a degree in social work. He is former chairman of the Lehigh County Democratic Committee.  He was district administrator for Congressman Paul McHale (retired).  He ran for Congress in 2012, defeated a primary opponent who greatly outspent him, and was the highest vote getter for a Democrat in over a decade in the newly drawn Republican district.

“Rick supports fair trade that protects workers, the environment, and human rights. He supports senior programs, student debt relief, and improved oversight of military spending.”

 

2.    Archie Follweiler, Jr ourcampaigns.com/CandidateDetail.html?CandidateID=114698

 

3.    Laura Quick (From Lebanon County!!)

Laura Quick – “Empowering the American Electorate”    

“Laura Quick was born in the old Hershey Hospital in 1966 where her paternal grandmother Olive was a nurse.  Olive had moved down from Ashland, PA to be close to her boys who attended the Milton Hershey School after the death of their father from ALS. Laura’s mother, Yvonne grew up in the Campbelltown area and was a graduate of Hershey High School.  Laura spent her entire childhood and teen years in the Palmyra/Campbelltown  area where during her high school years was very active in track and field, theater productions and various clubs.  By her junior year, she had already been accepted into Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP).  While at IUP she participated in a study abroad program in England, studying at Wroxton College and Mansfield College, Oxford University.  Her senior year she became president of the Equestrian Team and finished her studies with an internship in Washington, DC with the United States Information Agency (USIA).

 

“After graduating from IUP in 1988, Laura worked in the international exchange field for many years.  She has also been a teacher, a waitress and a bartender – often times teaching during the day and waitressing in the evening.  In 1999, she was blessed with her son, Merrick and in 2000, started working at the United Parcel Service.  From 2000-2004 Laura worked part-time on the Night Sort at UPS and would sometimes substitute teach or waitress/bartend during the day and on weekends.  In 2004, she qualified as a package car driver and continues to be a delivery driver today.  In 2009, at the age of 43, Laura started learning to play guitar.  And as if working as a package car driver isn’t enough, in 2014 she started a part-time home-based business and in 2015 became vice-president of an anti-bullying charity.

“Out in the community every day while listening to NPR, Laura has become compelled to put her thoughts and ideas into action.  Having decided to heed the call to public service, she brings into the political arena her work ethic and passion for learning.  If elected Laura will put the “represent” back in the word Representative by listening to her constituents and fighting for the needs of the 15th.  She will reach across the aisle to find solutions.  Her top issues to address are:

“#1 Platform:  Getting “dark money” and special interests out of politics – overall campaign finance reform

 

“Congress will continue to be in gridlock and listen to donors over constituents until comprehensive campaign finance reform is passed.  Some cynics will say that it is impossible to get big money out of politics, but those people are unaware of the groundswell of public and former congressional member support.  Until we put campaign finance reform as the #1 issue to address, we will keep spinning our political wheels.

 

“#2 Platform:  National education reform

 

“#3 Platform: Eliminate wasteful government spending.

 

“#4 Platform: Increase wages for the “90%” and establish paid sick/family leave for everyone.”

        b.    102nd district

        c.     104th District

            Jody Rebarchak

Jody Rebarchak wants state government to work again for all Pennsylvanians. As a Susquehanna Township Commissioner for six years -- including service as vice president and budget chair – she built a strong record of fiscal accountability and responsive service to residents.  Jody is a dedicated community volunteer and public servant, and she knows how to engage stakeholders to fight blight, revitalize neighborhoods and improve schools. Married and the mother of three, she knows that there’s nothing more important than a first-rate quality of life–beginning with effective and fully-funded schools, and making sure that Commonwealth fulfills its mandate of working hard for Pennsylvania families.”

IV.       CONTACTS

For the overall best source of government and media contacts, see this link:

http://www.whatisworking.com/contact-congress-address-phone-twitter-html/

Most representatives do not expect people to be paying attention.  That’s why the more people call and express their opinions, the more likely we will be listened to. Even if you know they will never vote your way on an issue, they do keep records of how many constituents disagree with them and it might help if they hear push back from their colleagues.
