In November 2018, we elected Melissa Shusterman to represent us in Harrisburg. And she is working very hard on our behalf. But we should recognize that she and the other Democrats in the PA House are fighting an uphill battle. The Republicans control the PA House… they decide what issues get hearings and what bills get votes. When a majority of legislators from both parties signed on to a bill to establish an independent citizen’s redistricting commission, it still didn’t get an honest hearing … blocked by the Republican leadership.
It is time to change the playing field… we need to flip nine Republican seats in the PA House to take control of the PA House. And we can do it… we flipped ten Republican seats in 2018 (including Melissa’s). But we need to get involved and step up our game. How do we do it? We can start by getting involved in PA House races in this area that will flip seats. PA Dems and their working team, Back to Blue, have started the ball rolling
All Tredyffrin Democrats are invited to join a virtual house party on Saturday June 27th at 5PM EST to learn about the work that Back to Blue is doing to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in Pennsylvania. If you have wanted to get involved, but aren’t sure where to start, this virtual house party is for you. You will meet your friendly field organizers and some of the other people volunteering in the area. Upon signing up, you will receive a link to join the call.
Democrats across the commonwealth are fighting for keystone issues like access to healthcare, better jobs, and protecting our environment, and we need your help to ensure we can turn Pennsylvania Back to Blue in November. Please join us to learn more about phone banking and other volunteer opportunities by joining a virtual volunteer meetup this Saturday from 5-6. Here is the signup link:
