About the Woodbury Democratic Town Committee
The Woodbury Democratic Town Committee (DTC) can have up to 18 members and 4 alternates; members of the DTC are elected to two-year terms at a bi-annual caucus of all town Democrats. Any registered Democrat who is a resident of the town of Woodbury is eligible for membership on the Democratic Town Committee. Those elected or appointed to town offices, boards and commissions are ex-officio, non-voting members of the Town Committee. Click here for the current Party Rules of the DTC (in PDF format).
