Mission and Goals

Mission

The New Canaan Republican Town Committee informs and motivates voters in order to recruit and elect the best candidates for local, state and national positions who will uphold the principles of the Republican Party.

How We Work

The New Canaan RTC consists of 15-20 members who are elected at a caucus of registered New Canaan Republicans in January of even-numbered years. At the March meeting following the January caucus, the RTC elects a chairman, a vice chairman, a treasurer, and a secretary. RTC members serve two-year terms. In even-numbered years, the RTC is primarily involved with obtaining votes for Republican candidates seeking national offices, statewide offices and legislative positions. In odd-numbered years, the focus is on electing Republican candidates for town-wide positions, such as Board of Selectmen, Board of Education, and Town Council. The Republican Town Committee meets the second Monday of every month at 7:30pm.
