Letter from Kevin Boughter, Chairman

Fellow Democrats,

Today I am proud to report we were able to send 5 out of 8 State-wide Judicial candidates to office. In the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth, the oldest court in this country, Debra Todd is in line to become the first female Chief Justice in the history of the Court. Maria McLaughlin, Carolyn Nichols and Deborah Kunselman are the Superior Court winners and Ellen Ceisler brought home the victory for the Commonwealth Court.

In Berks, we are sending Dennis Hess back to the office of Coroner. Carissa Johnson, Tonya Butler and Eric Taylor won their MDJ races. Jeffrey Waltman Sr, Lucine Sihelnik, Stratton Marmarou, Donna Reed and

John Slifko to Reading City Council. Patti Wright, Eddie Moran, Ann Sheehan and Robin Constenbader-Jacobson to Reading School Board. Also a sweeping victory in West Reading for the Mayoral and Council seats.

Congratulations to all who were victorious and just as importantly thank you to those who fell short. Your sacrifice to run for public service did not go unnoticed.

Lastly, thank you to everyone for their continued support of our candidates. You continue to do the behind the scenes work of phone banking and door knocking that prove to be invaluable. We could not do it without you.


Get The Word Out: Healthcare and CHIP

Healthcare Enrollment period is Nov. 1 through Dec. 15, 2017. We need to get the word out. Print out the attached flyers for the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN). PHAN is a navigator that helps individuals to make decisions on health care coverage.

Please download the linked flyer which has two sheets: one in English and one in Spanish. Then print it out, cut the six stubs, then post them at your doctor's office, church, school, laundromat, etc...

Many parents do not realize that CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program) has not been funded for 2018. We need to make sure that they call their House Representative to let them know how crucial this funding is.

Please download the linked flyer which has two sheets: one in English and one in Spanish. Then print it out, divide the take-away stubs, then post them at your doctor's office, church, school, laundromat, etc...
