MEDIA, PA — Today, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon announced her endorsement of the Delaware County Democratic Slate of candidates for County Council, District Attorney, and Court of Common Pleas.
“Over the past few years, we’ve seen the rebirth of civic resolve across the country and right here in Delaware County as people have stepped off the sidelines to participate in our democratic process and even run themselves,” Scanlon said. “Our community has been under one-party control for far too long and voters have the opportunity to change that on November 5th. I am proud to endorse Christine Reuther, Elaine Schaefer, and Monica Taylor for County Council, Jack Stollsteimer for District Attorney, and Kelly Eckel, Nusrat Rashid, Stephanie Klein, and Rick Lowe for the Court of Common Pleas. I am eager to work alongside them as we continue fighting for families across Delaware County, together.”
“Our slate of candidates for County Council, District Attorney, and the Court of Common Pleas have served their communities with distinction,” Colleen Guiney, Chairwoman of the Delaware County Democrats, said. “They are dedicated public servants who will lead our community forward while bringing transparency and inclusion to our county government. I am grateful to Congresswoman Scanlon for her leadership and support of our tremendous slate of candidates.”
"As a former Delco and federal prosecutor, I have spent my public career fighting to protect our communities and to improve the lives of all our citizens,” Stollsteimer said. “As District Attorney, I will work to insure our criminal justice system is fair and just to everyone in the diverse community we call Delco. I am deeply honored to have the support of Congresswoman Scanlon who proves an example every day of what public service is all about: bettering the lives of her neighbors and ensuring everyone respects the rule of law."
Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon represents Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District which includes Delaware County, Southwest Philadelphia, and a portion of Montgomery County.
