Manlius Democrats Meeting

Our Mission Statement

The Town of Manlius Democratic Committee is committed to representing the views of the town Democrats.  It is dedicated to the ideas of  transparent government, fiscal efficiency and diverse government representation. It’s goal is to encourage and develop candidates who promote these positions.

We are pleased to give people of our town a link to the Democratic Committee. The committee is made up of 33 election districts with two committee people representing each district. Meetings are held monthly, alternating between closed committee meetings and open public forums. The meetings are held in the Board Room of the Manlius Town Hall and are announced in the Eagle Bulletin and on our website.

We are active in the community and participate in local events, such as the Fourth of July parade, village festivals and other events around town. We often sponsor educational forums for residents to present local and state issues for discussion.  In addition, we promote “Meet and Greets” with local, state and federal representatives.

As your neighbor, friend or relative, who live in this community know that it is important to have diversity and choice in our government. We want to offer that to our town.  We are reaching out and hope that with your help, we can bring innovative ideas and professional expertise to give the Town of Manlius “ a clear view for today and a fresh vision for tomorrow”.
