Issues & Platform

For the first time, the Evesham Democratic Party adopted a Platform focused on local issues and politics. Thank you to the leaders and members of the Platform Committee, who dedicated their personal time and energy into putting the Platform together. It was adopted by the Evesham Township Democratic Committee on June 1st, 2018.

The 2018 Platform is based on three guiding principles:

  • Fiscal Responsibility – use taxpayer dollars wisely and efficiently.
  • Values – focus on transparency and collaboration to create better solutions; treat all residents with respect and fairness.
  • Safety – protect our community, residents, and children.

There’s a lot going on in Evesham. An outline of local issues includes:

  • Increasing accountability and transparency in our Township government and Council
  • Monitoring the activities and finances of the Township, Municipal Utilities Authority, and other municipal entities
  • Keeping track of Board of Education and school district issues
  • Redevelopment and infrastructure
  • Economic development, vacant housing, and smart growth

Any many more.
