Beth Stefanide-Miscichowski for Delaware County District Attorney
Beth Stefanide-Miscichowski has strong Delco roots, and now she is running to serve as District Attorney in the county she was born and raised. Beth was born at Sacred Heart Hospital in the City of Chester where her father was the owner and operator of Chester Woodworking from his childhood home on Potter Street. They moved to Eighth Street in Eddystone in the duplexes her father built and then moved to Concord Township in 1968. Beth attended St. Thomas the Apostle, Bishop Shanahan High School, Villanova University, and the Widener University School of Law.
“While at Villanova, I was taught by the Delaware County District Attorney who would go on to prosecute John DuPont. It was then I found my passion for public service. While attending Widener I began to work in the Delaware County Courthouse for the Honorable Joseph F. Battle, P.J. and The Honorable A. Leo Sereni, P.J where I assisted in all trial matters, legal research, and opinion drafting. I eventually went on to intern in the DA’s office in 1995. As a legal intern, I handled Magisterial District Court dockets all over the county. I went on to work full time in the Pre-Trial Division responsible for all of the Chester City District Courts. I went on to prosecute all misdemeanor and felony matters to include many homicide cases. Eventually, I was elevated to Trial Team Leader of our Juvenile Division and supervised several young DAs. Since I left the District Attorney’s office, I continued to work with vulnerable populations full time doing criminal defense, elder law, estate planning and all manner of Orphans’ Court litigation. When I started a family, I opened my own law practice and also worked for the Delaware County Public Defender’s Office. Today, I have a successful elder law and estate planning practice, and I live in Thornbury Township with my husband and three wonderful children.
Throughout my almost thirty year career, I have been serving this county and protecting our most vulnerable citizens. Whether it be during my many years working in the Delaware County District Attorney’s office or now with my own Elder Law and Estate Planning Practice, public service has always been of the utmost importance to me. I have been on the front lines of public safety and seen exploitation first-hand. Being a voice for victims and having the opportunity to champion their rights and rectify wrongs in my career has made me an experienced, fair, and honest attorney – it is why I am proud to be running for Delaware County District Attorney." ...

Joy Schwartz for Delaware County Council
“I am greatly honored to be a part of the excellent, Republican team running for Delaware County Council. I have lived in Delaware County for over 30 years – currently in Drexel Hill. My husband Larry and I have raised three children here, all of whom graduated from Delaware County Christian School. As a first generation immigrant whose parents and grandparents endured grave hardships under single-party, authoritarian governments in Spain and the former Soviet Union, I have an enormous appreciation for the privilege of being a citizen of this American nation, and I grieve for this nation’s departure from the principles of liberty enshrined in the Constitution.
For over 20 years I taught American History and Civics in the William Penn School District and coached the award-winning Penn Wood High School Mock Trial team. It was a privilege to work with a culturally diverse population of students, many of whom were immigrants like myself. I shared with them my love of America’s noble heritage, a gratitude for this land of opportunity, and in the words of Benjamin Franklin, the importance of keeping our Republic. As a public school teacher, I took an early stand against Critical Theory and left wing, ideologically driven curricula that I believe are detrimental to children, education, and families.
Beginning in February of 2022, I embarked on a crash course in all things Delco by attending nearly every Delaware County Council and Board of Elections meeting. I listened, read the agendas, studied the codes, interacted with county officials, and observed and scrutinized the procedures used in elections and elsewhere. What I learned from my crash course is that the five Democrats currently serving on the Delaware County Council enjoy unfettered control as a single party, authoritarian entity. Having come from a family that experienced the evils of authoritarian government firsthand, the county Democrats’ power grab and disdain for the principles of liberty alarm me.
Whether it be the irresponsibly bloated budget, the misguided health department, the declining quality of our public services, or their agenda-driven alterations of the administrative code, the Democrats on the Delaware County Council are leading this county to ruin. If elected, I promise to lead the charge to stop their radical, progressive steamroller, which if left unchecked, will destroy our county, our state, and our nation." ... See MoreSee Less
Mayor Bill Dennon for Delaware County Council
A lifelong resident of Delaware County, Bill Dennon grew up in Folsom, attended St. James High School in Chester, and currently resides in Upland where he is entering his fifth year of service as Borough Mayor. Throughout his time as mayor, he has shown empathy and compassion to all residents, a willingness to help anyone in need, and an openness that provides comfort to his constituents. Having raised four children here, Bill is intimately involved in his community. He attends his daughter's Widener University softball games, serves as a site coordinator for CRC watershed, and coordinates wreath laying ceremonies for Wreaths Across America Day to remember our fallen US Veterans. Bill also graduated as a plumbing apprentice and works as a local maintenance mechanic.
Bill is authentic and genuine in his relentless efforts to ensure that his constituents get answers and solutions to all of their issues. He also prides himself on his ability to work hand in hand with everyone in numerous volunteer and charity organizations. Bill Dennon truly is the blue collar, kind hearted, and caring Delco native we need on Delaware County Council.
“Living in Delco my whole life, I have seen the best days of this county. As Mayor, I know firsthand the damage that Democrat leadership is causing to us and our families. Whether it be financial mismanagement or the health department in shambles, their leadership has failed time and time again. It is time for change, and Delaware County cannot afford anymore one party, Democrat rule. We need to restore accountability, fiscal responsibility, and good government to Delco.” ...

After the 2020 election cycle, all future elections are critically important for Pennsylvanians. Clearly Delaware County is a battleground. Democrats has proven that when given a majority, they will take advantage of unchecked power to expand their influence, increase spending and raise taxes to unprecedented levels.
We are calling on every resident in Haverford Township to vote to restore common sense representation in our community. We need to elect candidates who are ready to advocate for the needs and interests of the hard working families and business owners of our community.
