So just who or what is The Haddam Democratic Town Committee? (HDTC) Are they a microcosmic version of Democrats on the national scene?
Well, yes and no. We like to think of ourselves a hybrid group. We embody some of the best traits of our State and Nationwide Dems, but are our own blend of Haddam, Higganum and Haddam Neck Democrat. As such, we embrace progressive values such as employment and economic opportunity; a healthy environment; quality, affordable health care; civil rights; affordable housing; access to good public education; and fair taxation.
We also focus on what’s going on here at home. We promote open and fair town government. We attend meetings, share info on this website and our Facebook page. We believe in and encourage serving on boards, commissions and around town for the greater good of Haddam, Higganum, and Haddam Neck.
The HDTC is an elected body of about 45 Haddam, Higganum and Haddam Neck registered Democrats that meet once a month to promote Democratic candidates and local causes.
Do you have to be a Democrat to be on the HDTC?
You do have to be a registered democrat to be nominated and voted in to The Haddam Democratic Town Committee itself. But you don’t have to be a member to come to our meetings. It is open to any registered democrat and unaffilated Haddam, Higganum, or Haddam Neck town resident. You can participate in discussions and activities and you can run for an office, but you only have voting previlieges when you are a member of the HDTC. You can be nominated for membership at our meetings.
You can run for a seat on a board or commission in the November 2017 municipal race.
We are currently gearing up for the Nov. 2017 municipal election. Time flies, so isn’t too soon start! If you would like to run for an office or would like to know more about the process, contact Melissa Schlag. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting or at events around town.
We’ll keep you up to date about political events in our area and encourage you to get involved. Be part of our dynamic team working hard for Democracy…and even have some fun!
Our regular meetings are usually the first Tuesday of each month.

Thank you to the Haddam Parks and Recreation Commission for putting this wonderful Family Fun Night together on the Higganum Green (9/9/16). It was great to see so much support from the Haddam Democrats (slingin’ hotdogs) as well as connecting with the people of Haddam!
