Welcome to the Greenwich Democratic Committee

The Greenwich Democratic Committee serves as a political resource and meeting ground for Democrats interested in local and national politics. Our purpose is to

Inspire participation

Recruit and support Democratic candidates

Evaluate and support issues

Promote a high voter turnout for Democratic candidates

Act as a conscience in our community

Participate in creating the best possible government for the Town and Village of Greenwich

Our primary goal is to find and support the next generation of candidates for local office. To support this mission the committee serves as a fund-raising organization and provides campaign management and leadership training.

We are dedicated to increasing awareness and participation in the local political process. We seek to be your partner in creating responsive, open, transparent and democratic local government.

Our monthly meetings are held on the last Monday of each month, and we welcome visitors and new members. Please call Sharon Kruger at 518-692-7713 for information about the time and place of the next meeting.
