Though the weather has been relentlessly cold, Primary campagin season is heating up! On May 19th, Chester County voters will elect individuals to local, countywide, and state level positions.
Members of the Republican Committee of Chester County met Thursday to endorse candidates for County Commissioner, District Attorney, Sheriff, Recorder of Deeds, Register of Wills, Prothonotary, Court of Common Please, and Magisterial District Judge. With 354 committee members present in person or by proxy, the Republican Committee voted to endorse:

Tom Hogan for District Attorney
Carolyn "Bunny" Welsh for Sheriff
Rick Loughery for Recorder of Deeds
Terri Clark for Register of Wills
Matt Holliday for Prothonotary

"We are very pleased to endorse such an outstanding slate of highly qualified candidates," said Val DiGiorgio, Chairman of the Chester County Republican Committee. "With one of the most financially responsible and well-run counties in the nation, good schools, excellent quality of life and beautiful open spaces and vistas, Chester County is a national role model and is consistently ranked among the top counties in the nation. Republican leadership at the county and local levels has a lot to do with that, so we are happy to run on that record and expect a great year for our team."
Chairman of the Board of Commissioners Terence Farrell echoed Chairman DiGiorgio's sentiments stating, "Because of our county's AAA bond rating and the leadersip of our row officers, Chester County continues to garner national recognition as being a great place to live, work, and raise a family, and retire."
"I am thrilled to have the party's support and look forward to continuing to work with Terence Farrell on bringing good paying, quality jobs to Chester County and to make sure our courthouse continues to be one of the best run in the nation," said County Commissioner Michelle Kichline
