Dems the numbers: County Democrats surpass Republicans in voter registration

It’s a new day in Delaware County politics. The county is finally “blue.”

 

Once a longtime Republican stronghold, the Delaware County Democratic Party now has an edge of 319 voters over the local Republican Party. 

 

As of Sept. 10, the county had 385,216 total registered voters, which included inactive and active voters. Of that amount, there are 170,035 Democrats and 169,716 Republicans which left 45,465 registered with other parties or without affiliation.

 

Delco Dems take tour of businesses

UPPER DARBY — The Democratic candidates for Delaware County Council kicked off a listening tour of small businesses Wednesday in Upper Darby.

The Democratic candidates, Bill Clinton and Patricia Worrell, began their event at The Preschool Academy located in the 100 block of Hampden Road. They toured the school and met with school founder Verna Aggie, who is also president of the Long Lane Business Association. The school used to be located on Long Lane and is now located in the building that formerly housed St. Alice Catholic School.

No picnic in the park?

Here we go again--the Republicans will not let us have a picnic in a public park. 

In July we told you about the Upper Darby police officers who told our candidate for County Controller that he was not allowed to campaign at a public Fourth of July event. Later that month we told you about the Borough of Sharon Hill denying the Sharon Hill Democratic Committee a permit for a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I have a Dream speech".
