Hello fellow Democrats and other friends. We are gearing up for some great wins this November and need your help. Our most important elections are right here in Newtown.
We need your support, specifically, cash! We would like to have a HQ office space in town in order to help these great Democrats win their races in November. Check out their info below and if you can help, any donation (within state and federal rules of course) would go a long way!
The 106th district is most of our home and the amazing Rebekah Harriman-Stites has stepped up to ensure Newtown values and issues are fully represented in Hartford.
The 2nd district which covers a section of Newtown needs a dedicated and talented representative who will work hard for all of us. Raghib Allie-Brennan will move us all forward!
Newtown is also part of the 28th Senate District. We are excited to have Michelle McCabe working hard to win this critical seat. Her knowledge of how to make government work for the people is unparalleled. Get to know her!
We also could not be more excited for Jahana Hayes as she makes her run for Congress. Jahana is one of the new wave of national leaders that will put our nation back on the right path.
William Tong, our Attorney General candidate has been a friend to Newtown for a long time. He will lead the firewall to ensure that Newtown values are echoed through Hartford. William has spent a lot of time here in town and is a real friend to all of us!
Mary Glassman will be here in Newtown raising funds for her campaign for US House of Representatives. Come join her in her quest for the House. Check out the flyer for the full details.
Basic info: July 25th, 5:30 – 7:00pm.

Hi friends, we are having trouble with the rebuild of the website. It is coming, please be patient!
Ringing endorsement for Dan and Maureen from the Newtown Bee.
“Change simply for change is not what we advocate. But change rooted in where we have been and where we are going is a positive for this town. While Mr Rodgers and Mr Rosenthal both have experience and natural leadership skills invaluable to the office of first selectman, The Newtown Bee endorses Dan Rosenthal for first selectman, believing he is the person to combine those talents with the above-mentioned qualities. With a fresh but realistic outlook, he can spit shine Newtown to make it glow — and grow — in a manner that suits this New England town. Voting Ms Crick Owen into office beside him will give our town the one-two punch needed to keep the town on track, stable, and firm in what and who we are.” 11/2/17

While we are excited that Rep Esty and Sen Blumenthal are going back to DC to work for us and be our voices, we were disappointed in the other results. Especially Eva’s. Her hard work and dedication to the citizens of Newtown are unparalleled. Her focus on what works for Newtown and her ability to be our voice in Hartford is an opportunity missed. Eva never gives up, never stops fighting for the working families and we are sure that her voice in Newtown will not be silenced.
So, we are still here and going to continue to work for Newtown families, children, teachers and workers. Next year is the local election and with the voters ensuring that the Board of Education will have differing voices on it, voices that can’t be ignored, our work starts anew.
If you were as disappointed as we were, but not sure where to turn, come to one of our meetings, we are looking for new members and people willing to step up and work for a better, nicer Newtown.
