As we gear up for the general election campaign season, here are three opportunities for us to engage with you (other candidates will have other offerings, dates TBD). More information is below for two of them:

1.   Fundraiser for our two supervisor candidates, Colleen Eckman (incumbent) and Peter MacFarland – Thursday, September 10, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Homewood Suites on Shannondell Blvd. Cost is $35 per person, $50/couple. Or, we’re always looking for sponsors!

2.  Lower Providence Republican Committee fundraiser, featuring a number of local and county Republican candidates, Saturday Sept. 19 at Chadwick’s from 8:30 to 10:30 am – Cost is $30 per person, $50 per couple (and our monthly meetings are usually the first Wednesday of each month, at Shannondell).

3.  As usual, we will be manning our Republican Committee table at the Lower Providence Township Fall Fest, Saturday October 3, from 11 am to 4 pm. This popular event has something for everyone. Stop by our table, meet our candidates, and see what free goodies and info about our candidates we have for you,  and “vote” in our straw poll for your favorite candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Look for the big LPRC banner and follow us on Facebook – Lower Providence Republican Committee 2-3.

 Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Voting district residents Pellicano and Barone did well while Shackelford and Rees did not. Rees, a teacher in the Spring-Ford School District and the lone registered Republican of the challengers, was soundly rejected by party voters.

Thank you all who took the time to come out to vote and especially those who thanked us for the mailer we sent out and how you appreciated being educated about the county commissioner candidates. It was a great day at our new polling location!
