Newtown Democrats in May

Thank you to all that turned out at the Newtown Middle School on a Tuesday night to be involved in local political issues.  We had a great turn-out of over 200 people, mostly voters and some spectators.

Congratulations to LeReine Frampton for her nomination to continue as Newtown’s Democratic Registrar of Voters.

Congratulations to Eva Bermudez-Zimmerman in winning her chance to represent the 106th District in Newtown as our Democratic candidate in November.  Eva’s hard work and knowledge of the legislative process will be a tremendous asset to us all in Hartford.

A special thanks to Kyle Lyddy for all his work on the Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial Commission and for his efforts to make Newtown and CT a better place to live and work.  Kyle ran a very positive campaign for the 106th nomination and we look forward to his continued work as chair of the Memorial Commission and dedication to Newtown.

We will be updating the site over the summer with information on all of the Democratic candidates running for office in this election cycle that would be representing Newtown.

CT 28th Senate District Candidate – Phil Dwyer

Judge of Probate Candidate – Sharon Dornfeld

106th CT Assembly District info

The Newtown DTC is lucky enough to have two very qualified and dedicated Newtowners stepping up to run for the CT State Assembly and represent us in Hartford.

Our next DTC meeting is 5/12, all registered Democrats are welcome as always.  At this meeting, you can hear about the candidates and chat with DTC members about the 106th race.

Then on May 24th, all registered Democrats in the 106th District will have the opportunity to elect one of them to run in November to help Newtown and CT tackle the tough issues ahead.

Congrats to all! Now get to work!

So the election saw some nice additions of Democrats to various town boards.  We now have three seats of the four in District 1 of the LC, an even split on the Board of Finance, added a third seat to the Board of Education and have the majority on the Police Commission.

Budget season is gearing up and the Board of Education has been working to deliver a responsible budget to the Board of Finance.

So it is time to roll up our sleeves and get to work folks.

And we finally updated the website with all of the current elected members….sorry it took a while.
