The mission of the Hamden Democratic Town Committee (HDTC) is twofold. We endorse and elect candidates at the local, state and national level who are committed to serving our community with the highest level of professionalism, integrity, inclusivity, accountability, transparency and trust. We support and promote progressive democratic values.
We pledge to hold our elected officials and their appointees accountable for ensuring excellence in government services and in stewardship of government resources for all Hamden residents and businesses.
Our country has a long history of institutional and overt racism, manifested in every aspect of our society.
We, as an organization, thoroughly reject racism and abuses of power, that predominantly target people of color, in any meaningful way possible.
We must be in solidarity as we combat injustices and lend support to those who work towards these ends.
If you are interested in the Hamden Democratic Town Committee endorsement as a candidate for Mayor, Legislative Council, Town Clerk or Board of Education, please complete the questionnaire for that office.
An effective Town government and Board of Education depends on engaged community members and competent, energetic, dedicated leaders willing to serve in public offices.
