Who We Are

We are local Democrats who embrace sustainability at a fiscal, environmental, and quality-of-life level.  To that end, our top priority is recruiting Democrats to run for local office and ensuring strong Democratic voter turnout by informing voters about elections, our candidates and the voting process.  We work closely with Dutchess County Board of Elections and the County Democratic Committee to meet these goals.
We appreciate your interest in our activities and look forward to welcoming you to a future meeting or event.
Monthly Meetings

Meetings are conducted at the Masonic Hall on the Clinton Town Campus on Centre Road.  We will also have a "hybrid" option for those who prefer to join on-line.
