    From your opinion piece
    VoteBuilder, the voter database used by the party, has a lot of cell phone numbers — meaning it would be possible to send text reminders to most local Democrats (a couple of campaigns have hit me up for money that way already), reminding them how important it is to vote and offering to answer any questions. Ideally, a follow up at the mail/drop off deadline with a reminder of voting options, would help even more.

    In both the primary and general election the Chester County Democratic Committee had active voter outreach using printed material, phone banks, email, canvassing and yes texting. The CCDC office number was included in our materials and many requests for info were answered. Sample ballots, dropbox locations, deadlines, candidate info, mail ballot applications, and other helpful info was sent via multiple media. Our mission was to inform and motivate citizens to cast an informed ballot in person or by mail.

    To the Editor:
    It is about time we recognized the true heroes of the Republican Party. They are not the dopey louts who rampaged through our nation’s capital and the moral cowards who still cover for them. They are not the ranting demagogues exploiting the emotions of the resentful. They were the unsung people not seeking attention, but doing their jobs: from poll workers to police officers. They were Republican state legislators and governors who did not bend to pressure to overturn the elections in their state. They were Republican judges who did not allow mere allegations unsupported by credible evidence to deny votes that happened. They were a Vice President who stayed loyal to the Constitution and the rule of law above any man. They were Republican congressional representatives and senators who did not fear to hold their own president accountable and dared to stand on their conscience instead of follow the majority of their party. They did not win. But they showed more bravery than the majority in their party who did.
    It is those Republicans who could save the soul of the party from being lost to a band of fascists. My father was a lifelong Republican who served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After the sacrifices that generation made to defeat fascism, I’m glad he was not alive to see his party dishonored by America’s Mussolini.

    In response to the CASD article Mike Mcgann wrote, I do want to say, my daughter is also at CASD and there are more fights than Taschner is willing to admit to. My daughter has witnessed them. There are children who go to guidance for some of their classes because they have been threatened and rather than dealing with the person making the threats, they punish the good student by not letting them go to class for their own safety. I realize I may not have all of my facts verified, and that teens tend to talk big, but I do know that this particular fact is true. I know there are fights in all the districts, but I feel that these children are not being handled properly. Yes, it is good to try and keep them in school, up to a point. When the child is disrupting another child’s learning to the point that they can not be in a classroom together, the problem child needs to go. I will not give names, but I wanted you to know that there are other facts that the school district does not share. One of my daughters friends was telling me about a fight in her classroom. The teacher ended up on the floor because unless there is a second teacher there, they are not supposed to physically separate the persons fighting. STUDENTS broke that fight up. And the teacher was asked if it was a “fight” or a “fight-fight”. Now tell me what the heck the difference is. They students were going at each other to the point that the teacher got knocked down. That is a FIGHT! I am so tired of hearing about all this and listening to my daughter tell me she is not comfortable with the tension at the school. She is getting a great education there, but at what expense?
