The Greenwich Democratic Town Committee invites all registered Democrats to consider running for membership on the Greenwich Democratic Town Committee (GDTC) or attending their district caucus on Wednesday, January 5 to help select the members.
All registered Democrats are welcome to attend, to nominate, to vote, and most importantly, to stand for election to the Committee.
The GDTC is the official body of the Democratic Party in the Town. Among other things, it endorses candidates to be the Democratic nominees in municipal elections and in state assembly elections for districts that lie entirely within the Town.
It also participates in the endorsement of candidates for elections that involve both Greenwich and other towns and cities. The GDTC also provides support to Democratic candidates in elections at the federal, state and local level.
In 2022, the GDTC will have 100 members, all to be elected at the January 5 caucuses for a two-year term. Members will be selected from the Town’s voting districts in proportion to the number of registered Democrats in those districts. The number of members to be elected from each district is set forth in the table below, along with the time and caucus location for each district.
Candidates can simply nominate themselves at the caucus, and they can be nominated by someone else if they cannot attend the caucus.
The GDTC expects its members to attend monthly GDTC meetings, work on GDTC committees, participate actively in campaigns, and do other work to support the GDTC and the Democratic Party.
The GDTC urges registered Democrats who are willing to do so to seek endorsement for membership on the GDTC.
Face masks are required at the caucuses. More details can be found at the GDTC website, www.greenwichdemocrats.org
