Volunteers needed:  The OSDTC is seeking Registered Democrats to serve on the Town Committee, as well as on other Old Saybrook Boards and Commissions.


We are asking our DTC members to actively reach out to registered Democrats and are encouraging citizens of our minority communities to join us.  We recently had a vacancy occur on the Police Commission ,and we will be looking for candidates to fill that position in the 2021 Municipal election.


In view of the recent attention to concerns regarding inclusion of minority populations, starting with “Black Lives Matter”we are encouraging all Democrats to join us  and make our party stronger by focusing on equality, inclusivity, and diversity.


John J. O’Brien, Chairman, Old Saybrook Democratic Town Committee
