In 2017, Ridgefield Democrats successfully fielded a broad, substantial slate combining several first-time candidates and respected veterans. That combination of proven leadership and energetic new voices is a winning formula for our town. In the years since, Ridgefield has elevated its already enviable quality of life, school system, and public services while keeping property taxes in check and continuing the fiscal prudence pioneered by First Selectman Rudy Marconi, enhanced by Board of Finance Chair Dave Ulmer, and continuously maintained by Democratic majorities on the Boards of Selectmen and Finance.
Ridgefield Democrats are poised to surpass that 2017 success in this year’s municipal elections, preparing to put forward an even more compelling combination of outstanding, established public servants and energetic, innovative newcomers. Democrats are determined to nominate the best possible slate to lead our town in readying our children for 21st-century challenges, adding to the grand list without changing Ridgefield’s small-town feel, retaining Ridgefield’s excellent bond rating, and protecting our precious land, wetlands, and local ecosystems for future generations.
