Join us at our next MCD meeting Thursday August 15, 7 – 9 pm at our office at 18 S. 9th Street in Stroudsburg. For other meetings and events see our Events Calendar page.

Joseph (Spike) Rogan had to withdraw from the Sheriff’s race per the terms of his new employment with the Pennsylvania State Police. We wish Spike great success in his new career.

As per our by-laws a meeting of the Monroe County Executive Committee was convened on July 9th. Six superbly qualified candidates were interviewed by the Committee.

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Kurt Cummings, Chief of Public Safety at A Pocono Country Place and Treasurer of the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Commission was selected to be our candidate for Sheriff. Mr. Cummings will address the Monroe County Democratic Committee at our headquarters Thursday July 18th at 7:00 pm. to accept our Party’s nomination. I look forward to seeing everyone Thursday night as we welcome our new Sheriff.

This appointment completes our Democratic Line-Up for “Victory 2019”

Note there are quite a few positions with no Democratic candidate and quite a few with no one on ballot. You can ask friends, family and everyone else to write you in for one of these positions if you live in the district. Most are for Auditor or Constable.  We can not win in November without you so talk to your neighbors about who you are voting for.
