Message From the Chairman


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 into what it is today.

Our Republican leadership in New Canaan has continued to maintain low taxes and fight for local control while providing one of the best school systems in Connecticut and supporting our seniors.

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

Jonathan Cheng, Chair
