Message From the Chairman

​Welcome! Thank you for visiting the New Canaan Republican Town Committee’s website. Our mission is to recruit and support qualified Republicans to serve in the best interest of all New Canaan residents. The New Canaan Republican Town Committee has been instrumental in identifying candidates who have helped shape our town to what it is today.

​Despite the Democrat-led state government handing us two of the largest tax increases in Connecticut’s history, our Republican leadership in New Canaan has continued to maintain low taxes and provide one of the best school systems in Connecticut while supporting our seniors.

​We have a track record of tremendous success, and we could not have achieved this success without our many volunteers. There are plenty of ways to volunteer and keep New Canaan a great place to raise a family and retire. Please let us know if you have an interest in serving on one of the town’s Boards or Commissions or supporting our Republican candidates who will represent New Canaan in the Connecticut General Assembly.​

​ Patrick Donovan, Chair
