Greenwich Democrats In the News

DTC Chairman Joe Angland's statement about Senator Kasser's resignation

Senator Alex Kasser's resignation is a loss for the citizens of Greenwich, the rest of the 36th senatorial district, and the entire state. She served us with distinction in Hartford, applying her intelligence, diligence, and passion for justice and fair treatment for all.  Among her most noteworthy accomplishments was Jennifers’ Law, a landmark bill that extended the reach of domestic violence legislation to include coercive control, which was enacted earlier this month largely as a result of her personal effort.  Greenwich Democrats thank Alex for her service, and we wish her well.

"Greenwich Democrats are outraged after what appear to be photos of a phone banking session at Town Hall were posted online by one of the town’s most vocal Republicans.

The photos show nothing more than a typical phone campaigning session during the 2017 election season, but the Greenwich Democratic Town Committee wants to know where they came from and why they were in the possession of Ed Dadakis, a town resident and a member of the state Republican Party."

"Several freshman state senators from Fairfield County will co-chair legislative committees in 2019 and 2020, aligned with the experience that propelled them into office.

"With Democrat Ned Lamont winning the race for governor, Democrats also captured a stunning victory in legislative races, seizing a solid majority in the state Senate and potentially increasing their majority in the state House by a dozen seats, unofficial election results showed Wednesday.

The results signaled a growing rout for Republicans in Connecticut...Democrats celebrated victories around the state, making inroads into GOP strongholds in the suburbs and, particularly, Fairfield County. One Senate District along the state’s Gold Coast saw its first Democrat elected in nearly 90 years and one House District in Greenwich in more than a century."

"Looking to continue their momentum after uncommonly strong results in last year’s municipal elections, Greenwich Democrats on Thursday formally presented the slate of candidates they hope will break town Republicans’ stranglehold on representation in Hartford. 'These are candidates with very, very strong credentials,' said Democratic Town Committee Chair Tony Turner."

In Greenwich, the hometown of George H.W. Bush and old stomping ground of Donald Trump, the tide is turning for Democrats.

The party’s gains in town will give Greenwich a stronger voice in the state Democratic convention. The town will send 32 delegates to the party’s conclave next May, when endorsements for governor, U.S. Senate and House and five other constitutional offices will be made.

The total appears to be a modern-era record and is part of a larger trend for Greenwich Democrats, who last month took control of the town finance board for the first time in at least a century, if ever, and flipped the tax collector’s office.
