“The Delaware County Democratic Committee endorsed candidates for countywide offices this year, including three women vying for open spots on county council.
Dr. Monica Taylor of Upper Darby joins Havertown native Christine Reuther and Elaine Paul Schaefer of Radnor as the endorsed county council candidates, while state Deputy Treasurer of Consumer Programs and Public Engagement Jack Stollsteimer has been picked to try to unseat Republican Katayoun Copeland as District Attorney.
Rounding out the endorsed candidate list are four Democrats seeking open seats on the Delaware County Common Pleas Court: Former Magisterial District Judge Stephanie Klein, former Swarthmore Mayor Rick Lowe, Kelly Eckel, a trial attorney who narrowly lost a bid for the bench last year to former District Attorney Jack Whelan, and Nusrat Rashid, who has maintained her own practice in Chester since 2010.
“I think it’s a strong, balanced slate of people who have extensive experience in local government and who have shown their dedication and integrity over the years,” said Democratic Party Chair Colleen Guiney. “I think they work well together and I think they will work well if elected.”
