Saturday’s “Labor Day Celebration” and Candidate Fundraiser!


On Saturday, September 3, 2016, Democrat Joanne Jackson, who has been stopping by UPDC meetings and Upper Perk events on a regular basis since announcing her candidacy for PA State Representative, is planning what sounds like a fun and festive “Labor Day Celebration” in Emmaus at the beautiful and historic Farmhouse at Buena Vista, 3501 Main Road, Emmaus, Pa.

Live music will be provided by the James Supra Blues Band and the food is courtesy of Bad Bones BBQ. The event is scheduled for Saturday, September 3rd between the hours of 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets are $50. RSVP Kelly Bauer 610-217-3751 or email

Remember, local and state elections matter, and make as much, if not more, of an impact on our day to day lives!

Sign up up to see President Obama in Philadelphia in September!

Tim Kaine event in Bethlehem on Wednesday

Doors open at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 31, 2016, for a 1:30 – 2:30 p.m event at Hanover Township Community Center, 3660 Jacksonville Rd Bethlehem, Pennsylvania 18017 featuring Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine. Sign up for your free ticket online. (If you forget to sign up, my guess is you can still show up at the door and get in, depending on how early you get in line.)

The Clinton Campaign just opened an office in Bethlehem at 606 E Broad Street; one more locations where supporters can volunteer (phone banking, voter registration, canvassing).  A lot is happening at the Lansdale office, as well, and I read that there will be voter registration booths at the Allentown Fair this year.

Lansdale Open House – Hillary Clinton Campaign Office!

I just received a call letting me know about the Open House tomorrow, Tuesday, August 23, 2016, of the Lansdale Campaign Office for Hillary Clinton (and for the combined PA Democratic Candidates campaigns). All democrats, and supporters, are invited and welcome to attend the event, beginning at 6 p.m. at 14 East 6th Street, Lansdale, PA.

The office is on a street with townhouses, so look for the signs and the driveway leading to the office.

Hillary Clinton Rally in Philly on Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Tonight, Donald Trump claimed that the only way he’d lose Pennsylvania in November “is if certain sections of the state, they cheat” – FACT CHECK, Hillary Clinton is currently polling 10 points ahead of Trump in Pennsylvania.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign just announced that she will visit Philadelphia on Tuesday, August 16th for the kickoff of Democratic Party voter-registration efforts in the city. The event will begin at 1:15 p.m. at West Philadelphia High School, 4901 Chestnut Street. Doors will open to the public at 11:15 a.m.

Hillary Clinton Campaign Office in Allentown!

What will most likely be the nearest Democratic Campaign office to the Upper Perkiomen Valley opened on the 500 block of Hamilton Street in Allentown, PA last week. Paid staffers and volunteers will be working out of this office to elect Hillary Clinton, along with working for Democrats running for state and federal offices. Phone banks and voter canvass operations, among other activities, will be organized and held at this location, so anyone interested in volunteering to get Democrats elected this November are encouraged to stop by and see how and when they can volunteer.

The Pennsylvania Democrat Committee and the Democratic National Committee are coordinating their efforts, and their campaign offices. Another office was recently opened in Norristown, at 9 South Forest Avenue. And paid Democratic organizer Carolyn Lee is working out of Harleysville to coordinate volunteer efforts in our immediate area.

Because Harrisburg Matters, Too!

Because what happens in Harrisburg is often as important as what happens in Washington, D.C., among elected officials, we need your help to elect Democrats to the PA State House. Joanne Jackson is running for State Representative in the 131st District (this district includes Upper Hanover, East Greenville, Pennsburg, and Red Hill). Rachel Hendricks is running for State Representative in the 147th District (this district includes Marlborough Township and Green Lane).

Rachel Hendricks’ campaign is knocking on doors and canvassing in Lower Salford this weekend. The following information was sent out by the campaign. If you are able and interested in volunteering, this weekend, August 6th and 7th, you can show up at the parking lot at Hennings Market, 290 Main Street, Harleysville and/or email Rachel –

We will be meeting in the Henning’s parking lot (Harleysville, in the back towards the bank) at 10 am on Saturday and canvassing until around 3.
We will be meeting in the same place on Sunday at 11 am.
If you want to volunteer, but can’t meet at those times, I can send a volunteer to meet you when you are available. I can also email you PDF lists that you can walk on your own (I will need the completed lists back ASAP for entry though) Even an hour of knocking would be a big help to the campaign!
You can save yourself some cooking and support Joanne Jackson by going out to dinner on Wednesday, August 17th, 2017 at Louie’s Restaurant in Allentown.
