Welcome to the Lewisboro Democratic Committee web site.
Lewisboro is a town in the north-eastern corner of Westchester County, New York State, in the United States. The Lewisboro Democratic Committee is the local arm of the Democratic Party.
Under New York State law, the Committee is made up of two members ("District Leaders") for each of Lewisboro's twelve election districts.
The mission of the Lewisboro Democratic Committee is to promote democratic principles and values and to encourage active participation in the election process. As an official part of the Westchester County Democratic Committee, we recruit, support and elect candidates who subscribe to these beliefs.
We uphold and promote progressive government dedicated to the safety, health, and well-being of all citizens equally, without regard to ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or disabilities. We are confident that good government can improve people’s lives and help provide economic security. We believe that we have an obligation to protect the earth through common-sense regulations that give us cleaner and safer air and water. We believe that we should be compassionate and respectful neighbors in our communities, our country and our world.
The Lewisboro Democratic Committee is proactive in educating the public on issues that pertain to these beliefs. We study and endorse legislation that supports these principles and are diligent in making our voices heard.
The year 2015 focuses primarily on local races. In Lewisboro, the following positions will be on the November ballot: Supervisor, two Town Board seats, Town Clerk, Highway Superintendent, and Town Justice. In addition, there will be races for Westchester County Legislator, Surrogate Court, County Court (two positions), and the NY Supreme Court.
The Lewisboro Republican Town Committee and the Lewisboro Democratic Committee have come to an unusual agreement this year to cross-endorse the incumbent candidates in Lewisboro, all of whom are running for re-election. The rationale is explained in this joint press release.
On Sunday, August 24, 2014, the Democratic Committees of the Towns of Pound Ridge, North Salem, Somers, and Lewisboro hosted an event for Justin Wagner, candidate for the NYS Senate seat in the 40th Senate District, which includes all four towns. The weather was beautiful, the location at Bylane Farm in Lewisboro was beautiful, and the mood was definitely upbeat!
