What were those 46.6% registered Chester County voters thinking? Was it the issues? The party? Or even more so, was it the money? More than likely a combination of factors, of which the overall impact in the distant future is not clearly understood. For our own education, we can all develop a deeper understanding by researching a number of non-partisan online, organizational and informational sources.
The listed sources, while just a few, will present to you the statewide and local itemized financial campaign contributions, bill tracking, emerging topics and comparison of states by issues.

“Good policy depends on good information”
Was your voting issue “ education”, “equal pay”, “health-care”, “taxes”, “pipelines”, “environmental protection”, “the economy” ? One thing is certain: the challenge lies ahead for all of our elected officials. As constituents, we need to communicate with our legislators and understand that their work has never been more difficult or more challenging. We as League members must rise to that challenge as well.
THANK YOU FOR VOTING! AND THANK YOU FOR SERVING THE VOTERS!
