New Canaan Republican Town Committee




Latest New Canaan Republican Town Committee News

Since the 1920's, the Republican Party has been the majority political party in New Canaan. We are proud that the contributions to public service made by New Canaan Republicans throughout our long history as the majority party in town have been so instrumental in making New Canaan the excellent community it is and traditionally has been.

The main responsibilities of the Republican Town Committee ("RTC") are to select the best Republican candidates to run for public office and to provide support and assistance in electing them to office. Our focus is not only on national and state candidates, but on our own local elections.

The Republican Town Committee also provides assistance in recruiting, recommending and supporting Republicans who volunteer their time to the various appointive boards and commissions that help govern our town and make it the excellent community it is and has been. The RTC is also a resource for members of the appointed boards and commissions. Learn More
