Can Frank Agovino Turn Swarthmore Red?

Can Frank Agovino Turn Swarthmore Red? — Frank Agovino has been elected at the new Delco GOP chairman replacing the retired Tom McGarrigle and promising a host of changes.
“I want to get the party on better footing, and that means having a 49-municipality strategy that actively invites more people into the process from across the county,” he said.
He also intends to “establish a committee on mail in voting” and wants to “improve our performance amongst voters who now prefer to vote early and remotely”.
“We need to do a better job of serving as a watchdog and holding the current l(democratic) leadership accountable,” he said. It is also our duty to effectively articulate an alternative vision.”
This was an election where only one county Republican candidate State Rep Craig Williams (D-160) won. Incumbent Chris Quinn (168th) was an incumbent who was upset.
Agovino was the GOP candidate for the 26th District senate seat in November losing to incumbent Timothy Kearney
Agovino’s New Avenue Foundation started the Media Bean Company which is still around, albeit in Newtown Square, still making great breakfasts. He has been involved with a number of boards, including the Delaware County Intermediate Unit, the Manufacturers Alliance of Delaware and Chester County, and the YMCA of Eastern Delaware County, etc.
He received a BS in Marketing from St. Joe’s and an MS in Organizational Leadership from Cabrini. He lives in Springfield with his wife and daughter,.
One borough in Delco where Republicans have not been on the ballot recently, is Swarthmore. Maybe Frank Agovino can revitalize the Swarthmore GOP which, sadly does not have an electronic presence.
This is an article I wrote a while ago. Nothing has changed.

Hopefully, Frank Agovino will provide some needed changes.
One thought on “Can Frank Agovino Turn Swarthmore Red?”
If the GOP wants to win in Delco the Old Guard must be dispatched. Period. Many of the current committee people are self important fossils desperately clinging to perceived power.
Chester has some 40 delegates but only about 3 or 4 seats are filled. Who gets those other votes.
It almost seems like Republicans don’t want to win.
