2017 REPUBLICAN TOWN COMMITTEE PLATFORM
The Republican Town Committee (“RTC”) believes the Town of Darien should be led and governed for the self-directed benefit of all our citizens. We recognize Darien’s uniqueness among the state’s communities, big and small. We are committed to being thoughtful and responsive to the needs of our neighbors while retaining our independence from state and federal encroachments.
To deliver on our town’s social, economic and fiscal responsibilities, we promote government that sets practical spending priorities in a fair and transparent manner.
The RTC supports our law enforcement officers, our firefighters, educators and town employees who provide our community’s infrastructure and emergency services. We value our volunteer organizations and our small businesses that help achieve our goal of delivering small town government in an efficient manner.
We cherish our New England heritage and our rich environmental resources. We also recognize our responsibility to intelligently adapt to today’s dynamic technology, public transportation, housing and business needs.
To support this platform, the RTC recruits and supports qualified Republican candidates for local boards, commissions and elected offices. Furthermore, the RTC recognizes the importance of timely communication with Darien residents, regarding key issues that impact our community, our families and ourselves.
