Our Mission

Welcome to the website of the Westport Democratic Town Committee – www.westportdemocrats.org. We are the official body of the Westport Democratic Party, elected by and representing the enrolled Democrats of the Town of Westport. Members of the Westport DTC are elected every two years from Westport’s nine RTM Districts. The number of registered Democrats in each RTM district determines the number of DTC members in that district. According to Westport DTC by-laws, our purposes are as follows:

  • To select party-endorsed candidates for municipal offices and delegates to state and district conventions of the Democratic Party of Connecticut
  • To support the principles of the Democratic Party
  • To promote the candidacies of the nominees of the Democratic Party for municipal, district, state, and national elective public office
  • To provide for Democratic election campaigns in Westport in support of these nominees
  • To ensure all Westport Democrats the opportunity to participate fully in the electoral process, by affording them information and assistance in the exercise of their voting rights.

We invite you to become actively involved in Westport’s Democratic Party, and we hope you will work together with us to support Democratic principles, elect our Democratic candidates and help us keep Westport a great place to live and work! Our party welcomes your ideas and input. We would like to hear from you.
