Trump Incites Violence to Try to Thwart Election Certification.
Congress Perseveres and Certifies Biden/Kamala Win!!


Dems Turned Berks County
from Deep Red to Pink.



Thank you to all our volunteers! Thanks for all the phone calls you made, for all the post cards mailed, for all the flyers dropped off, for all the doors knocked, for all the neighbors you talked to, for all the rallies you particiapated in and all the moneys donated!!! Thanks again and again.

Although at times it seems like a fruitless task, we have helped to create change. The map above now shows Berks County a bright gleaming spot of pink. In 2016 Berks County was lost in a sea of dark red counties that strongly supported Trump (10+ points). This year the Trump support was reduced by 5 points. That is an achievement to be pround of and to build on. We are in the pink.

However, we cannot rest. While Biden's win is a great victory, the hard part is now before us. The Republican party will do everything in its power to sabotage Biden and our democracy. We must not let them steal it away from us.

You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no results. - Mohandas Gandhi

PA Republicans Seek Amendment
To Limit Governor's Emergency Auth.

There will be a Primary Election on May 18 and on the Primary ballot there will be three amendments to our PA Constitution.

One amendment, prohibiting discrimination based on race or ethnicity is good, vote YES, but the other two are REALLY REALLY bad, vote NO.

These two bad amendments would limit the Governors power to declare a State Of Emergency ( SOE) to 21 days. After 21 days the SOE would go before the state legislature for a decision to continue. A good analogy to this situation would be if your house was on fire and the fire chief could only use 100 Gallons of water before he would have to contact the fire department for permission to use more water.

This power grab is so important to the Republican legislature that they managed to get two amendments on the ballot in case one doesn’t pass. For more information: click here.

If you can help to make calls to Democrats and spread the word about these amendments contact Linda Wood at lindabwood@gmail.com and put volunteer in the subject line.

Help Stop Maxatawny Warehouses

Imagine driving west into Kutztown on SR Route 222 and when you get to where the Arby’s and Valentino’s are located off to your right you see two giant truck warehouses nearly 50-feet high. You’ll have plenty of time to look: the proposed out-of-town Duke Realty warehouses will add nearly 2,000 daily truck trips and more than 5,000 daily car/small truck trips to an already congested traffic area, destroy wetlands, create unsafe air pollution and use 56,000 gallons of water per day from proposed wells.

The Maxatawny Community Coalition needs your support to stop or alter this development into something that won’t destroy our community and invite more warehouses in the future. For a summary of our concerns click here. Or contact us at MaxatawnyCommunityCoalition@gmail.com.
