Newbury Democratic Town Committee
Who are we
The Newbury Democratic Town Committee is a group local activists and engaged citizens working to promote the ideals, policies and candidates of the Democratic Party.
We encourage the participation of all eligible voters in the electoral process. We believe that the participation of all our citizens in open public discourse strengthens our democracy.
While we celebrate our individual rights, we understand that the freedom and prosperity we enjoy is the result of our commitment to work together for the common good. Our challenge is to respect differences of philosophy and opinion while finding common threads that unite us while we work to make our community, state, and country more just, equitable, and fair.
