SRTC Proposes Restoring Open Caucuses

SRTC to discuss proposed revisions to their by-laws.

All Southbury Republicans may again have a voice in selecting candidates for elected officials.

The Southbury Republican Town Committee has scheduled an informational meeting for later this month on proposed changes to the SRTC by-laws including restoring open caucuses.

Republican caucuses were eliminated by the SRTC in May 2011, a move that drew strong criticism from residents outside and within the party. Claire Dwyer, former Chairman of the Republican Town Committee, said the decision to eliminate caucuses was based on observing other towns that did not conduct caucuses.

“The Republican Town Committee has held multiple meetings over the past several months working on a thorough review of the By-Laws with the intent of making the SRTC process as open and inclusive as possible,” said Sharon M. Lieber in a release sent earlier this week.

The meeting is set for Monday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. at Southbury Town Hall. Republicans are encouraged to attend the meeting to ask questions and make comments concerning the various changes.

After input from Southbury Republicans is received, a caucus of all registered Republican voters will be held on Dec. 19 for the purposes of adopting the proposed revisions.
