Letter to the Editor: Chester’s Democrat are united, despite split with Linder

Tue, 03/03/2015 - 2:07pm -- jmdavidson

To the Times:

As the chairwoman of the Chester City Democratic Committee, I am writing in response to the recent allegations of division amongst our party, allegations that are false and without merit. Although Mayor John Linder has opted to go in a different direction, his choice has no bearing on our party’s structure or strength. Currently, we have over 250 vested members who are committed to carrying out our mission. Our party is stronger than it has ever been and we stand united and ready to lead and govern.

THORNDALE, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf will kick off a statewide “Schools that Teach Tour” and outline a forthcoming proposal to the Legislature to increase taxes on Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry to help boost aid to public schools.


Wolf, a Democrat, will appear Wednesday at Caln Elementary School in Thorndale, outside Coatesville in Chester County.


Wolf pledged during his campaign for governor to impose a 5 percent severance to help wipe out cuts in public school aid under his predecessor, Republican Tom Corbett.
