The Hamden Republican Party has established several new committees to address long standing issues that will support the party’s growth and vitality.
“Hamden voters want a clear choice in the next election, in order to provide an alternative to the status quo," Republican Chairman Ron Gambardella said. "The Republicans must be well prepared to fill the void.”
Hamden Republicans are attempting to rebuild the party after suffering losses in last November’s election. They have begun the process of rebuilding by establishing four committees: Platform Development, Candidate Recruitment, Technology and Fundraising.
These committees are necessary to that rebuilding process, Gambardella said.
“The Platform Committee will provide clarity and direction to existing elected officials as well as to candidates, spelling out exactly what we stand for," he said. "The Technology and Fundraising Committees will help insure the message gets out, while the Recruitment Committee will begin the process of vetting candidates.”
Currently the Hamden political scene is dominated by the Democratic Party, which holds all of the district seats on the Legislative Council.
"For the political process to work fairly, a viable two party system is absolutely essential,” Gambardella said.
The Republican Town Committee meets the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Hamden Senior Center. For more information about the RTC, visit its Facebook page.
