Dems Win Delco Council Seats

Dems Win Delco Council Seats — Tonight was not the GOP’s night.  Democrats won two seats on Delaware County Council, along with all of the line offices.

To our recollection no Democrat has served on the council since it went to a five-person board four decades ago.

As of 11:45 p.m., Republicans Dave White and John J.  Perfetti had 58,712 and 58,454  votes respectively as per the county website with Dems Brian Zidek and Kevin Madden  at 60,657 and 61,695.

Libertarian Edward Clifford had 2,040 votes and arguably played the spoiler for at least one seat albeit arguably not as Dems did better in the races without  a Libertarian candidate.

Jerry Sanders was beating Mary McFall Hopper for sheriff 61,846 to 58,435 with Libertarian Mathew Wallace getting 2,818 votes.

Joanne Phillips was beating Robert W. Kane for County Controller 64,357 to 58,938 and Mary Walk was beating Beth Naughton-Beck for  Register of Wills 62,979 to 57,504. No Libertarian help was needed.

One GOP bright spot was Jack Whelan apparent victory in the Common Pleas Court race. He has beaten Kelly Eckel 63,175 to 61,415 according to the unofficial numbers.

There are GOP bright spots at the state level too.

Sallie Mundy appears to have won election to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ahead of Dwayne D. Woodruff 1,039,470 to 946,363 as of 11:54 p.m.

Ms. Mundy ran as an unapologetic conservative proudly displaying endorsements from the NRA and Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation on her web page.

Also, Christine Fizzano Cannon appears to be the top vote-getter in the Commonwealth Court race as of this writing with  893,973 votes. If the numbers hold she will join Democrat Ellen H. Ceisler on the bench, who appears to have the second highest total at 882,911.

In the race for Superior Court, the four top vote-getters appear to be Democrats Maria McLaughlin, 987,117; Deborah Anne Kunselman, 952,345; Carolyn H. Nichols, 893,489; and Republican Mary P. Murray, 841,035.

The referendum allowing  school districts to end replace taxes on homes passed 924,989  to 782,922 according to unofficial figures.

All judges were retained.

Also Republican Margie Rovinski easily won election to the Springfield School Board beating Caitriona Mulholland 426 to 255.

Joseph’s People Central Delco (JPCD) will host a free session, Nov. 21, on Psychological Motivation through the Job Search. The session will be held from 7-8:30 p.m., in the Parish Hall of St. Laurence Church. The church is located at 8245 West Chester Pike, Upper Darby, and the entrance to Parish Hall is from the rear church driveway off of St. Laurence Road. All are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation.

Featured speaker is Dr. Brandi Baldwin-Rana, founder of Millennial Ventures, which provides professionals with tools for leadership and career freedom. A former Psychology and Business professor at Temple University, Lancaster Bible College and Johns Hopkins, she will teach those in transition what they have been doing wrong and how to make it right.

Job seekers will experience an interactive workshop that will offer an opportunity to renew their faith, release doubt and get motivated by 2018. Come out and learn how to improve networking skills and leave with a clear plan to help navigate searching for employment during the holidays.

Dr. Brandi has been highlighted in the Philadelphia Business Journal’s “People on the Move” campaign, and was appointed to Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s Millennial Advisory Commission. She was recently named as one of Philadelphia’s Most Influential African American’s by the Philadelphia Tribune.

JPCD is a joint program of Media Presbyterian Church and St. Laurence Church in Upper Darby that provides networking opportunities, guidance and emotional support to job seekers and career changers.
