The 2011 election results are in, and the news for area Republicans is great at the County level, but not so great here in town.
GOP candidate Chris Bauers won a Council seat in the North Ward, which is excellent news. He will be a very hard-working and smart addition to Borough Hall.
Marc Reber, though, was not retained on Council in the Middle Ward, nor was Ken Buckwalter in the West Ward. Both were excellent Councilmen, though, so we thank them for their service and hope the people of Phoenixville continue to have the opportunity to enjoy that service in other ways. There is a seat on the Planning Commission opening up…
Finally, newcomer Brady Appleman was unable to unseat incumbent Mike Speck in the East Ward.
The results in the judicial elections and the Chester County row office elections were better news for the GOP. It was a clean sweep– aside from one judicial election– for the Republicans. Of particular note for those of us in Phoenixville, we can welcome hometown candidate Rick Loughery as our new Recorder of Deeds.
Those results can be found here.
Thanks again to all our supporters, and, as always, if you are interested in serving yourself, please reach out to one of us.

There are a number of interesting elections this cycle, but they aren’t the ones that tend to get all the coverage. Paradoxically, though, it is elections like these where your vote is more important than ever.
People like your Borough Council representative, County Commissioner, or local Judge can make decisions that can affect your life very directly. Yet these are also the elections with the lowest turnout. So come out and support your GOP candidates on November 8, between 7 am and 8 pm, and your voice will be heard loud and clear!

Marc Reber, a Republican who came within seven votes of unseating incumbent councilman Henry Wagner this past November, was recently appointed to that very Council seat. Mr. Wagner is moving, and needed to resign. You can find Marc’s contact information using the button above for “Local GOP Elected Officials.” Feel free to contact him, or anyone else on that page, any time.
In other post-primary news, the GOP slate for this coming November was determined during the recent primary. Your candidates are:
Tom Corbett: Governor
Jim Cawley: Lt. Governor
Pat Toomey: U.S. Senate
Jim Gerlach: PA 6, U. S. Congress
Patrick Meehan: PA 7, U.S. Congress
Warren Kampf: PA 157, State House

The 2010 GOP primary is fast approaching, and you’ll want to stay updated on who is on the ballot, and who the Republican Party has endorsed or recommended.
Of the most local interest is the competitive primary for our State House seat. In this race you have Phoenixville’s own Ken Buckwalter running against Warren Kampf. Both are recommended by the party organization, but most of the Phoenixville committee is supporting Ken. He is a mainstream conservative small businessman, and has defended the Constitution successfully before the State Supreme Court. Warren is a lawyer and township supervisor from Tredyffrin who by most accounts is also a capable public servant.
Both would be an improvement over current Representative Paul Drucker. But Ken has shown he can win elections in heavily Democratic Phoenixville. He also enjoys Carole Rubley’s endorsement. She is the well-respected Republican who held the seat before Drucker won it upon her retirement. Many of us think Ken’s conservatism, electability, and endorsement from Rep. Rubley mean he has the best chance of winning in the fall.
You can learn more about the rest of the endorsed slate of candidates here. There will be primaries for many offices, including Governor, Senate, and Congress. The endorsed candidates for our area for those offices are Tom Corbett, Pat Toomey, and Jim Gerlach, respectively.
Be sure to get out on May 18, and let your voice be heard!
