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.
Thank you for your support in the recent November 3rd election. With widespread support from both major parties, Dan Welsh retained his seat on the Town Board. This is a great result, and we wish him and all his running mates re-elected to their positions the best as they are sworn in this coming January.
The official results of the election can be viewed on the County's Board of Elections web site.
There are three primaries scheduled for 2016 in New York State:
And then the General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 8.
In addition to the Presidental election, there will be one U.S. Senate seat on the ballot (currently held by Senator Schumer). The entire House of Representatives (including our local Representative, Sean Patrick Maloney), the entire NYS Assembly and Senate, likely Westchester County District Attorney, and several judicial seats are up this year as well.
In addition, in Westchester County, Democratic Party positions (local District Leaders, State Committee members) will be decided in the September 13 primary.
Also, for what it's worth, the School Board elections will be held on May 17.
