About Us

We are residents of the Town of Groton, Democrats, interested in being active in the local, state, and federal government. We recruit residents to run for Town offices, including Town Council, Board of Education, and Representative Town Meeting, and to serve on local Boards and Commissions… like the Library Board, Recreation, Planning, Zoning, Board of Assessment Appeals, Historic District, Shellfish, etc… We raise donations throughout the year to fund the election of Democrats, your donations are always welcome.

Every fall we open a campaign headquarters in Groton and look for volunteers to help us keep it open. Volunteers are always needed, to send postcards for candidates, make phone calls and go door-to-door for candidates. We also look for volunteers to give voters a ride to the polls, be at the polls supporting Democratic candidates, and get results from the polls.

Join us and help recruit new members and new candidates for local offices (Town Council, Board of Education, and RTM).

We meet once a month, January thru October on the 4th Wednesday of the month at Thrive 55+/Senior Center, from 7 to 8 pm. Our meetings are open to all registered Democrats in Groton. Come and meet us and be a little or a lot involved.

If you’re interested in serving on the GDTC, please get in touch.
