New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community

The Greene County Democratic Committee is the official democratic county committee of the New York State Democratic Party. We have two representatives to the State Committee. We work to implement our Democratic values in the 3rd Judicial District, 19th Congressional District, 46th State Senate District, and 102nd Assembly District.

We are comprised of 14 towns and governed at the County level by a County Legislature.

Each town has an active Democratic Town Committee who administers the duties necessary for free and fair elections, transparent campaigns, and recruits, trains, and supports candidates who represent our democratic values.

The GCDC meets six times a year with the Executive Committee meeting 4 times a year. There are no meetings in July.

Our Annual Spring Brunch every April and Fall Dinner & Fundraiser is in October every year.
