Raise the Flag!

Jim Salvas (West Chester Democratic Committee Chair & Property Management Chair) asked Chrissy Houlahan to have this flag flown over the US Capital as soon as she was elected the first Democrat and woman to win the 6th Congressional Seat in the US Congress! Our flag is thus the first flown at Chrissy’s request. 

Pictured is Dick Bingham (CCDC Chair) and Marsha Peltz (CCDC Vice Chair) raising our flag over Chester County Democratic Headquarters at 37 S. High Street in the Borough of West Chester.

Jim donated the flag; CCDC paid for the flagpole and the solar light above it.

Other constituents can request a flag be flown for them by applying here:

Here’s a comprehensive agenda for Congress!

Calling on Costello (R-PA 6), 21 W. Market Street, West Chester PA
Friday, Jan. 22, 11:30am to 1pm

THIS WEEK’S FOCUS: WE THE PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER; DO YOUR JOBS!

Good governance has 8 major characteristics. It is participatory, consensus oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive, and follows the rule of law. Good governance is responsive to the present and future needs of our country, exercises prudence in policy-setting and decision-making, and that the best interests of all citizens are taken into account. We expect our representatives to follow these simple rules.

1. Rule of Law
This does not include bribing mistresses, using the government as an ATM machine or making false allegations against opponents.

2. Transparency
Transparency means that information should be provided in easily understandable forms and media; it does not mean remaining silent and complicit when your party’s leader approves of the KKK.

3. Responsiveness
Good governance requires that our elected officials serve the best interests of their constituents and LISTEN to them.

4. Consensus Oriented
Good governance requires consultation with experts and constituents, NOT blocking them on Social Media.

5. Equity and Inclusiveness
Government that works for all people, not just certain races.

6. Effectiveness and Efficiency
Good governance means that the representatives don’t shut down the government because they are anti immigrant.

7. Accountability
Accountability is a key tenet of good governance. Our elected representatives will be held to account for their actions.

8. Participation
Participation needs to be informed and organized, including freedom of expression and assiduous concern for the best interests of society in general.

If you cannot attend but would like to submit a letter, email it to us at contact@ccag-d6.com and we will deliver it for you.

Host: Concerned Constituent Action Group
Location: 21 W. Market Street, West Chester

Sit-in Dec. 7 at Rep. Costello’s office

A few of the 15 protesters this morning sitting in Rep. Costello’s (R-PA 06) West Chester office demanding that he vote against the GOP tax bill that gives tax cuts to the wealthy while hurting students, the sick, and the elderly. They have pledged not to leave until Costello commits to a No vote. For more on the GOP tax scheme, see Molly Sheehan, “Open Letter to Rep. Pat Meehan on the GOP Tax Plan.”
