The Darien RTC is looking for candidates for the 2021 Municipal Elections
Applications are being accepted NOW!
Are you willing & able to help your community?
The Town of Darien, under Republican leadership, has maintained low taxes while supporting one of the best school systems in the country, sustaining a high quality of life for its residents and providing meaningful services to our senior citizens.
The Darien Republican Town Committee (“RTC”) serves a critical role in identifying strong, dedicated volunteers who will continue to provide Darien with prudent and competent leadership locally, while seeking to foster that same kind of leadership in Hartford. We believe that ALL Darien residents are best served by a transparent, accountable, responsive and fiscally prudent government.
2021 will be a critical election year for our town as we continue to fend off state control. The Darien RTC is currently seeking qualified candidates to run for election in November to the Boards and Commissions that run our town so well. Prospective candidates must be registered Republicans in Darien and submit an application to the Darien RTC. Applicants approved and endorsed by the Darien RTC will receive campaign assistance throughout the election season.
If you are a registered Republican interested in serving our town as an elected official, please scroll down to the bottom of this page, click on the application format you prefer (MS Word or Adobe PDF), complete the application form, and send your completed application to Jim Demark, Chair of the Darien RTC’s Candidate Recruitment Committee, either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by U.S. Mail, to Mr. James Demark, 57 Saint Nicholas Road, Darien, CT 06820.
Qualified candidates will be contacted to schedule an interview once their application has been received and reviewed.
The Darien RTC actively recruits and supports qualified candidates for Darien’s local boards, commissions, and elected offices. There are many ways you can volunteer your talent, skills, and time to the Darien community. To serve on a Darien board or commission, you must be a registered voter in the Town of Darien.
While the Darien RTC usually recruits those who are registered as Republicans, it also recruits those who are registered as Unaffiliated voters for non-elected vacancies on boards and commissions.

IMPORTANT: If you don't see a vacancy that appeals to you, please remember that the Darien RTC is always looking for qualified candidates who are willing and able to fill positions as they become available.
If you would like to serve on a particular board, commission, or in an elected office that's not listed on the Town of Darien's website, please complete and return an application form anyway, so the Darien RTC can be made aware of your interest in serving and can consider your application when the opportunity arises.

Wreaths Across America at Spring Grove Cemetery in Darien....
A BIG Thank You to Darien's Residents!
On Saturday, December 19, Darien's officials and residents participated in Wreaths Across America's laying of wreaths on the graves of Darien's veterans at the Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery. The Darien RTC was instrumental in promoting the event and in encouraging Darien's residents to pitch in to help by buying wreaths to place on all of our veterans' graves this year. The response was overwhelming, and the town's residents not only stepped up to achieve this objective by buying the 2,163 wreaths that were needed, but it actually exceeded this goal by 300 wreaths! These 300 wreaths will be placed on our veterans' graves in 2021— a great start for next year's event.
A BIG Thank You to Darien's residents who contributed by buying wreaths for our veterans and to those who participated in laying the wreaths. Be sure to check out the photos from this year's event by clicking here.
