Hi all,

I just moved to Delaware county from DC a couple months ago. I've been a libertarian for a while, but obviously living in DC there's no possibility of voting for anyone federal (except president), and local politics is so democrat-dominated that even republicans have given up trying. Looking at this website, I dont see any active Delaware county LP organizations. Is there anybody out there in my county? I'm hoping to stay here for a while.

Thanks,
Andrey

Someone here should be able to find you a few contacts.  Delaware county is an important district, and it would be great to have an active group there.  All it takes is a few people who care to make a difference.

Try contacting our Eastern Vice-Chair, Lou J.

In fact there is an organization in Delaware County, as well as one in Philly.

Moving from the sewer to the swamp must feel rewarding.  Welcome.  Good LP representation in the NE.  There is a LP Philly group too that puts out a newsletter.

I don't believe they do. Dave Jahn (our LPPA Webmaster) is a good person to talk to in the county, but I know he has been extremely busy the past couple weeks. You can reach him at webmaster@lppa.org.

Last I looked, the city of Chester (which is in Delaware County, not Chester County) was run almost entirely by Republicans, despite it's being poor and crime-ridden. Their big problem is being on the wrong side of the state line, because there is no sales tax on the other side of the line. See:

http://www.savingcommunities.org/issues/taxes/sales/destroyscommerce.html

I recommend getting involved as an issue advocate, reasoning directly with those in office, and building your reputation before you talk about running for office. When you do run, you will have a earned a reputation and a following, if you did a good job as a concerned citizen.

Hi Audrey,

Welcome to Pennsylvania, land of Republican Dirty Tricks and more.  I'm the Secretary for the Sstate Party and with regard to Delaware County, I think in the nearly two years I have held the post I have received only one or two reports from the Delaware group if that much.  I keep hearing that it is a large group but I haven't seen any indication that this is true.  I'll search my records and find a few names for you to contact.  Please just send your e-mail address to me at secretary@lppa.org and I'll get back to you with some names.
