Meet the 2023 Ridgefield Republican Slate
Support our Candidates
The Ridgefield Republican Town Committee, is proud to present our slate of highly qualified and committed candidates for the upcoming November 7th municipal elections. Our team is dedicated to upholding the values that make Ridgefield a truly special place to live, work, and raise a family.
Our candidates are resolute in their stance against the special interest groups that are dividing our town. Our slate firmly believes in preserving the unique character of our town while responsibly addressing the needs of our community.
The Republican platform is centered around local control and ownership of decisions that most impact our town. One of our core principles is supporting parents' rights to be fully informed and engaged in decisions that impact their children's education and well-being. We stand behind the parents' voices and are committed to ensuring that their concerns are heard and valued, and our Board of Education candidates have pledged to listen to you and to be your voice and to take the politics out of the discussion. That extends to maintaining local control of our curriculum and educational decisions and will not allow our town's educational policies to be dictated by the state.
Moreover, our slate of candidates is ready to hold the Democrats accountable for their out of touch positions and policies. We cannot ignore the mismanagement and excessive cost overruns like those seen with the Ridgefield sewer upgrade project, the issues surrounding overdevelopment and high-density housing, the ever-increasing traffic congestion, and the burden of continuous tax increases that our residents face yearly.
Our Republican slate focuses on what truly matters to Ridgefielders - affordability, safety, and quality of life. We understand the priorities of our community, and we are equipped with the necessary experience to address them effectively.
Our candidates are ready to put Ridgefielders first and work tirelessly to enhance the well-being of all residents. We are committed to maintaining a strong, prosperous, and cohesive community that cherishes its traditions while embracing progress.
As we move forward, we humbly ask for your support and trust in our vision for Ridgefield's future. Together, we can preserve the essence of our town while embracing a brighter tomorrow for all.
