Our Upper Providence Candidates
Chuck Ferraro - 2nd District Township Council
A 16-year resident of the 2nd District in Upper Providence, Chuck Ferraro is running for office to get UPT back on the right track. Chuck, a 32 year employee of the Postal Service, whose daily route encompassed much of the 2nd District, is a member of the Nativity BVM Parish and a former volunteer CYO and swim coach in Collingdale and Aldan.
He and his wife Donna, who is a volunteer at the Rose Tree Fire Company, have been married for almost 50 years and are community pillars. Chuck and Donna are grandparents to 4 grandchildren that love visiting Upper Providence Township.
Chuck is running on a platform of fiscal responsibility, something we all see as critically important as the current Council continues to raise our taxes and fees with nothing to show for it. Chuck promises that he will put forth every effort to use your hard earned tax dollars wisely and efficiently, to be 100% transparent, and to keep Upper Providence a great place to live and raise your family.

Dave Daniel - District Magistrate Judge
Dave Daniel, a multi-decade resident of Upper Providence Township, served for over 20 years as an Assistant Public Defender and Judicial law clerk, handling criminal and civil matters in almost every District Court in Delaware County. Currently, Dave operates a small general practice law office serving the needs of our residents and local businesses.
Dave was also appointed to and served multiple terms on the Board of Directors of the Delaware County Bar Association, coordinate a countywide Law Day Program where Judges, District Attorneys and Defense Attorneys discuss and analyze a fictional fact pattern at area high schools and served multiple terms as Editor of Delaware County Legal Journal providing synopses of recent local court opinions to update attorneys on current developments in the law.
Outside of his outstanding legal career, Dave has an extensive record as a volunteer in Upper Providence Township. Dave is the current Vice-Chair of the Upper Providence Township Sewer Authority and served 12 years on the Upper Providence Township Zoning Hearing Board, the last 6 as Chair. He also participated and attended every meeting of the Third Street Bridge Community Advisory Commission.
In Dave's own words: "I believe my experience makes me the most qualified candidate for the position. I’ve dedicated my entire career to serving locally by serving on Township Boards and as an attorney here in Media serving local residents and small businesses while taking time to serve the disadvantaged and give back to the community. My experience and background will allow me, as your District Justice, to make the tough decisions needed to protect our community while ensuring all who come before me are treated fairly and with respect."
The Upper Providence Township Republican Party proudly endorses Dave Daniel for the position of District Judge for Upper Providence District Court 32-2-46.

About endorsed candidates
The Upper Providence Republican Party will endorse candidates for local office, particularly Upper Providence Council, during the Local and Judicial election cycles. You can find those candidates above in those election years (odd years).
Sometimes we may endorse candidates for other local elections (County-wide) or some statewide elections. If so, those candidates will also be above along with our rationale.
More regularly, the UPT GOP will send out an email before elections with a list of candidates on the ballot, what their platform is and other important notes (without a formal endorsement). If you're interested in receiving that email with a detailed list of candidates in primary and general elections, please sign up for our mailing list.
