Tredyffrin Democratic candidates prevailed in two of the local races in yesterday’s election. Current School Board President Karen Cruickshank won handily and received more votes than any other candidate in Region I. She will continue to protect our schools in a challenging budget environment and work to provide an excellent educational experience for every student.
Analisa Sondergaard, Democratic candidate for Magisterial District Judge, defeated 18-year incumbent Jeremy Blackburn by 124 votes. She brings nearly 17 years of trial experience both as a prosecutor and civil litigator to the bench and will be an excellent justice for our community.
Thanks to all of our candidates for their hard work and dedication – they are all outstanding and will continue to serve the community and work to make our township an even better place to live.
