2019 will be a difficult year for Radnor Democrats. Only one Republican seat is in contest in 2019, compared to three Democratic seats. The result is that Republicans have three opportunities to win a seat, while the Democrats have just one.
Most of the work we do as a Township is nonpartisan. My Republican colleagues are not ideologically opposed to well-paved roads, and they don't cheer when our homes flood. Nevertheless, I do believe that maintaining a Democratic majority in Radnor matters, and is important.
Ten years ago, Radnor Township elected a Democratic majority for the first time in a century. The change came about after the exposure of financial irregularities that resulted in the termination of the Township's manager, some of which are still haunting the Township today. The Radnor Democrats have committed themselves to transparency and financial responsibility since then, and the Township's success shows that it's been working.
