Welcome Easttown Voters!
We're here to help you vote
and elect Democrats to local,
state and federal offices.
The Republican embrace of rightwing issues such as banning abortion, de-funding public education with school vouchers, opposing sensible gun reforms, refusing to take effective action on climate change, making it harder to vote, and continuing to push 2020 election conspiracy theories, helps draw a clear contrast between Democrats and Republicans in this election. The choices couldn’t be clearer, better or easier. Spread the word all summer and encourage all your Pennsylvania relatives, friends and neighbors to be sure to vote for these outstanding Democratic candidates.
This Is A Big Race With National Implications! The PA Senate race will have a huge impact on the country’s future as it may decide whether Democrats retain control of the Senate. John Fetterman, will be running against Mehmet Oz, a 62 year old TV personality who has only lived in Pennsylvania for a short time and is strongly supported by Donald Trump. He supported overturning Roe v Wade, and despite being a doctor has received much criticism for his promotion of pseudoscience, homeopathy, and alternative medicine. Just what our country needs - another TV reality star who knows little about Pennsylvanians and will say anything to be elected. Learn more about John Fetterman!
Chrissy Houlahan, an Easttown resident and incumbent, will be running against Guy Ciarrocchi who has spent his career lobbying against women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, contraception, and public schools, to name a few. On the issue of reproductive freedom, Ciarrocchi claimed, "It is time for Roe to be replaced." He was against assistance for small businesses during the height of the pandemic; opposed increasing the minimum wage; voted to raise local taxes by over 500%; and even opposed the bipartisan infrastructure bill, which is creating thousands of jobs for Pennsylvanians and fixing our supply chains. It's clear he doesn't care about the well-being of Pennsylvanians. Learn more about Chrissy Houlahan!
Without a Democratic governor, PA could end up looking a lot like Texas or Florida where Republican governors and legislatures are attacking women's rights, immigrants, minorities, voting access, and school boards. Josh Shapiro is running against Doug Maistraino, a far right election denier and extreme Trump cult follower. Mastriano says he will ban abortion with absolutely no exceptions, undermine vote by mail, has promised to appoint a Secretary of State who will decertify voting machines and de-register voters at his whim. He led the spending of taxpayers dollars on a ridiculous sham audit in an embarrassing attempt to invalidate the 2020 election Pennsylvania results. Incredibly, he is a proud attendee of the January 6th insurrection and actually paid thousands of dollars to bus people to the Capitol insurrection. Learn more about Josh Shapiro!
