Get Involved

The Old Saybrook Democratic Town Committee encourages all Democrats to get involved in our work.  Year round, we work on campaigns, plan events, conduct fundraising and much more.

In addition to meeting monthly, we currently have five standing committees:


The purpose of the Fund Raising Committee is to raise funds both for the regular operations of the Town Committee and for campaign purposes.  They plan a combination of low and high dollar events as well as online fundraising, potential auctions and sponsorships.  


The Registrations Committee is responsible for reaching out to new Democrats in town and growing the attendance at regular DTC meetings.  In addition, they look for ways for the DTC to connect with the more than 2800 Democrats in town – learning what is of concern to them, educating them about the work of the Boards and Commissions, inviting them to participate in DTC activities.

Civic Engagement

This committee determines what town-sponsored events the DTC should participate in and identifies any gaps that might be filled by DTC-sponsored activities.  In addition, they are responsible for building understanding and support for the DTC  and the Democratic Party through active engagement of residents at the events.
