Bringing our community together.
Newington is a community that values the services it provides to achieve a high quality of life. Our Newington Democratic Party believes that inclusivity, diversity, and welcoming individuals from all types of backgrounds and faiths makes our community even stronger.State Representative Gary Turco
Our Areas of Focus:
Families choose to live in Newington for our excellent schools, wonderful town services, and our proximity to work and recreation in the region. Newington is a beautiful town with charming New England character that must be preserved as we continue to thoughtfully grow our tax base and stabilize our mill rate.
Newington Democrats believe strongly in finding creative ways to protect our precious remaining open space. We want to strengthen our lovely town center for shopping and dining, and make our community safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
We believe that it is critical for our town to maintain its infrastructure with regular maintenance in order to avoid inevitably greater costs to taxpayers down the road. This means working collaboratively with state and federal officials to maximize resources and grant programs that can help to address these issues without burdening local taxes.
About the Newington Democratic Town Committee
The Newington Democratic Town Committee (DTC) is the official local organization of the Connecticut Democratic Party.
Our core mission is to get highly qualified Democratic candidates elected to our local, state, and federal government. We recruit, develop, and support strong, fiscally-responsible candidates who share our vision of keeping Newington a vibrant, affordable, desirable place to live, work, and visit. As Democrats, we work to preserve and improve the quality of life in our town, and to advance Democratic values and principles.
Membership in the DTC provides the chance for individuals to have a voice in Newington politics and the opportunity to be nominated for service to the town. If you would like to connect with fellow Democrats who are engaged and committed to making Newington an even better place to live, we invite you to join us!
I’m proud to represent Newington as a part of the 20th District. Newington is a wonderful town for all ages – from the vibrant businesses to the local parks to the special gems such as the town library. It is a great place to raise a family, be involved in the community, and has immediate access to all that central Connecticut has to offer.State Representative Kate Farrar
