Invite Participation on Town Boards and Commissions
Like many towns in Connecticut, Easton has seen a rapidly increasing number of voters who register as Democrats. So many, that for the first time in many years, “We’re nearly at parity and that’s great news for everyone,” said Nanette DeWester, chair of the Easton Democratic Town Committee. “We’re proud that Easton is now a two-party town that reflects the growth and values of the entire community. It’s so important that more than one political party lead and direct a democracy in order for all the people to be fairly represented.”
The Easton Democratic Town Committee (EDTC) seeks Democrats to run in the upcoming 2021 municipal election for the paid, full-time town jobs of Tax Collector and Town Clerk, and the paid, part-time position of Treasurer. Interested Easton residents may contact DTC Nominations Chair David Katz for more information about experience and qualifications for these positions.
“We welcome all new Democrats to our party, and ask them to consider becoming part of town government as elected town officials or as members of elected or appointed citizen boards or commissions,” said Katz.
Elected positions for important town boards and commissions that will be on the ballot this year include the Board of Finance, the Easton Board of Education and Region 9 Board of Education, the Library Board of Trustees, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Board of Assessment Appeals, and others.
All these positions and boards wield significant decision-making power and influence over policy, budget, or quality-of-life issues in Easton. More information about open positions is available on the town website.
Easton residents interested in seeking endorsement or more information from the Easton Democratic Town Committee for any of these positions may contact David Katz at email@example.com.
Democrats — old and new — are invited to join the Easton Democratic Town Committee in remote meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. Contact Lise Fleuette, EDTC secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and help us build a sustainable future for Easton. We believe in a transparent town government that advocates on behalf of everyone and with respect for the democratic process.
We support public officials who lead with moral character, truth, and compassion. We defend high-quality public education for all students. We uphold policies and decisions that protect our agricultural heritage and open space. We seek long-term prosperity for Easton residents that is rooted in equity and justice. We are focused on solutions and promote inclusive membership.
