March/April 2022

This is no April Fool’s joke! WE SURVIVED A 10-DAY PETITIONING PERIOD! With your help, ALL candidates interested in running will be on the ballot for the May 17th Primary Election. We pulled off an incredible 11th-hour victory getting 536 signatures in a few days for Jim Massey to get on the ballot in the 34th PA Senate District. When we all row in the same direction, we can overcome the odds and WIN! Winning feels so good and we must carry this momentum into the May 17th Primary and then into the November General Election.

Here is the list of candidates running for Cumberland County PA House, PA Senate, and PA Dems State Committee:

  • PA Senate 34th District – James Massey, Jr.
  • PA House 87th District – Kristal Markle
  • PA House 88th District – Sara Agerton
  • PA House 103rd District – Patty Kim, Heather MacDonald, Linda Thompson
  • PA House 199th District – Alan Howe
  • PA Dems State Committee Man (vote for 2)
    • JL Bruner
    • Donald Dissinger
    • Thomas Fink
    • Sean Quinlan
  • PA Dems State Committee Woman (vote for 2)
    • Jacqueline Smith-Bennett
    • Sandra Wolfe

Looking forward to all the good things spring offers…baseball, blooming gardens, warm breezes and evenings outside…

Speaking of good things…

Have you seen our slate of Democratic candidates for this year’s primary?  Polished, qualified, dynamic winners-on the ballot because of dedicated Democrats working through a shortened, uncertain petition season, snow, sleet, freezing rain and COVID to get our candidates on the ballot! I’m looking forward to helping them win!  #DemocratsDeliver

I had a  Zoom meeting with the PA Dems. Jason Henry, Nancy Mills, Shavonnia Corbin-Johnson and Senator Shariff Street led a conversation with members of the Democratic Caucus of County Commissioners.  The PA Dems are committed to assisting with grass roots infrastructure for this year’s election and are committed to our down-ballot candidates!

At the Courthouse….
On March 16, in a 2-1 split vote, Commissioner DiFilippo and I voted in favor of joining Adams and Franklin counties in a Regional Broadband Study (RBS). There are significant broadband purposed dollars coming to PA. Our RBS will be critical in identifying areas of concern so Cumberland County’s funds are used in an efficient, cooperative manner to provide affordable, reliable broadband access to Cumberland County.

Cumberland County, Camp Hill, Wormleysburg, Lemoyne, New Cumberland, Lower Allen, East Pennsboro and West Hanover joined together in litigation to stop the tolling of the I-83 bridge. The filing was done in Commonwealth Court on March 21st 109 MD 2022.  A hearing is scheduled for April 25th, 10:00 AM at the Pennsylvania Judicial Center.

As always, please let me know if I can help in any way.

Thanks for the opportunity to serve you!

-Jean Foschi, Cumberland County Democratic Commissioner
