From Kathleen Keohane’s Statement Concerning the Primary Election
A sincere Thank You to all the volunteers and voters who helped make this year’s Primary a successful election day. And an historic one too. For the first time ever, more Tredyffrin Democrats came out to vote than their Republican counterparts in every single one of our seventeen precincts. A total of 628 more Democrats, to be exact.
There is no disputing the fact that Tredyffrin is changing. The number of registered Democrats has increased by almost 10% in the last two years. At this point, the two major parties are separated by only 210 voters, while the number of Independents has remained stable at about 18%. We feel confident that our well-qualified candidates can win this year if voters have a chance to meet them and consider their credentials and positions on the issues that matter most: maintaining our quality of life by providing excellent services, the careful management of growth, and responsible use of our tax dollars.
Thank you for your interest and support of our candidates.
