South Windsor Democratic Town Committee
The South Windsor Democratic Town Committee (SWDTC) represents the Democratic Party on a local level. Members are elected to two-year terms at a caucus that is held in January. Terms begin in March. The town committee recruits candidates for local office and the state legislature.
The committee is responsible for nominating and endorsing Democratic candidates for the town council, board of education, and other local positions. We also participate in the nominating and endorsement process for the state legislature’s 14th and 11th House Districts, the 3rd State Senate District, and the 1st Congressional District. In addition, the SWDTC elects delegates to the state party’s nominating convention every four years to help choose a gubernatorial candidate, and other executive officers.
During election years, SWDTC members work to help elect Democratic candidates through campaign activities such as door-to-door canvassing and phone banking. We hold a fundraiser in October called the Apple Harvest Festival (cancelled in 2020), and we plan other events throughout the year.
SWDTC meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm. While usually held at the South Windsor Town Hall, meetings are currently held virtually. The meetings are open to all registered Democrats.
