OUR MISSION

We are the Democratic Town Committee of Waterford, CT. We move Waterford forward by getting Democrats elected in local, state and federal offices. The Waterford Democratic Town Committee is committed to maintaining excellence in our schools, protecting our environment and open spaces, supporting women’s rights, LGTBQIA equality, racial equality and creating cultural and recreational opportunities for all residents.

We support careful town planning, responsible budgets, and appropriately developing Waterford. We accomplish this through elective offices, appointed positions on town committees and boards, volunteerism and activism. We are accountable to the Democratic State Central Committee and all state and federal election laws.
