About the Needham Democratic Town Committee

The Needham Democratic Town Committee is a local political organization made up of elected and associate members working together as volunteers in support of Democratic policies and candidates.
As Democrats we believe in and work for the common good, and recognize that our government has a positive role in the lives of individuals and communities. We know that the strength of our democracy is dependent on the engagement of thoughtful citizens. Please join us!
Thanks for your interest!
