With May 6 election results in hand and a new annual budget in place, the town’s management cycle will renew itself July 1, with new opportunities for residents to participate and contribute in the process of municipal government.
Beyond the start of a new term for elected officials, July 1 signals a new term for appointed, volunteer members of every town board and commission as well. The potential for up to several dozen vacancies exists: this is prime time for residents to get active and be involved in the town’s self-governance.
Registered voters with any party affiliation – or with none – are invited (encouraged!) to contact either the Woodbridge Republican Town Committee or the Woodbridge Democratic Town Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) to begin the nomination process. Please note: applicants MUST be registered to vote.
In our system, responsibility for governance rests with the governed. Involvement with a town board or commission is an extraordinary way to accept a share of that responsibility.
Laurence Grotheer, Chairman Woodbridge Democratic Town Committee
