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. This year will be a critical election year for our town as we continue to fend off state control. 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 towns as an elected official, please visit www.darienrtc.com/boards---commissions.html , 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 mail, to James Demark, 57 St. Nicholas Road, Darien, Ct 06820.
