It’s Official . . . Announcing Candidates for Tredyffrin Township Board of Supervisors & Tredyffrin-Easttown School Board!

Tuesday, March 8th was the deadline to file petitions for Pennsylvania’s May 17, 2011 primary election.

Special thanks goes to Mike Broadhurst, chair of the Tredyffrin Township Republican Committee and Dariel Jamieson, chair of the Tredyffrin Township Democratic Committee for providing the names of candidates for the Board of Supervisors and the Tredyffrin Easttown School Board.  Mike and Dariel have agreed to supply the bios and/or resumes of each of the supervisor and school director candidates which I will provide in a future post on Community Matters.

Note on School Director candidates:  To become a school board candidate, you must file a petition signed by at least 10 qualified voters of the school district for the political party with which the petition will be filed. It is my understanding that all school board candidates are cross-filing. To cross-file in a primary election (that is, to run on both political parties), a registered Democrat or Republican must circulate a proper petition for the other party. The petition must contain signatures as previously mentioned. If elected on both party ballots in the May primary, a candidate will appear on both party ballots in the general election in November.

The candidates for the May 17, 2011 primary election are as follows:

  1. Pattye,

    Check your facts for Region 3. Last night Pete told us a democrat, Craig Lewis has filed.

    Thanks Kevin. Before posting the list, I sent an email to the Easttown Democrats re school board candidate. To date, there has been no response from them and there was no contact telephone number listed on their website. I will be glad to add ‘Craig Lewis’ if it can be confirmed — if someone from the Easttown Dems (or Mr. Lewis) is reading this, please confirm.

  2. Pattye —

    Are the Democrats putting up anyone in the special election? If so, who is it — or do they still have time to decide?

    I asked that question of the TTDEMs as I assumed that the cut-off date for the special election was the same as for the regular election – March 8. However, I was told the deadline for candidates to file for the special election is March 21 and as of today I have not been notified if they submitted a name. It would make sense that they should have one of the at-large supervisor candidates (Ernie Falcone or Molly Duffy) on the ballot for the special election vs leaving it blank. But I do not have a definitive answer.

  3. Today, I received official notification from the TTDEMs that Molly Duffy will oppose Mike Heaberg in the special election to fill the vacated supervisor position. Mike Heaberg was appointed last month by the BOS to serve as supervisor until the special election.
