Vote in the Primary - May 19, Your vote matters in races across Adams County!   

Post Primary Observations from the Chair of the Adams County Democratic Committee
By Roger Lund
Dear Democratic Friends, Whenever there is a primary election, it often feels like a feud within a family. In truth, it is an opportunity to forge new directions and/or reinforce the course we were on. Unfortunately, some folks lose, as they do in every election, but that does not diminish what they brought to the table. We thank all seeking the Democratic nomination.

So here we are, with that praise in mind, ready to move on. It is time, as Democrats, to accept that the voters have spoken and we now have a slate to get behind for November.

This effort begins with statewide races for all important judicial races. We have a chance to win 3 Supreme Court seats and we are poised to do so with Three outstanding candidates: Judges David Wecht, Christine Donahue and Kevin Dougherty. For Superior Court we went with Judge Alice Debow and for Commonwealth Court we went with Michael Wojcik. All these candidates are outstanding and if we want fair treatment on issues from redistricting to workers comp to voter rights, we need to elect these judges. On the county level Matt Teeter will go on in the fall as the only Democrat on the ticket. We will continue to work hard for Matt to get him over the line in November.

A current and a former County Commissioner will take us into the fall hoping to reprise the situation when we had two Democratic County commissioners in the Court House. Both Marty Karsteter Qually and Harry Stokes will continue to work for our support for the rest of the year and we must join that effort.

All contentious School Board Elections have been determined in Fairfield and Gettysburg, so this is not something we will need to deal with as the summer proceeds.

There are, of course, many local races to win in the fall as well. Because of all the write in votes, we don't know exactly how those have shaken out yet.

So, let's shake off any lingering doubt as to if the Democratic voters made any mistakes and let's move forward to elect as many Democrats as possible in November.
