Woodbury Republican Caucus for Municipal Candidate Endorsement.  All Woodbury Republicans are invited and may vote.
When  Tuesday July 18th, 2023, 6pm.
Where Senior Center, 281 Main St South, Woodbury, CT 06798

Meetings are normally the 1st Thursday of the Month in the Senior Center at 7pm.  Schedule may change due to State party requirements.


What We Do

The committee develops policies involving political involvement in local government and holds caucuses or meetings for the nomination of candidates for local offices, and for delegates to area and state conventions. Membership eligibility is open to enrolled Republican electors in town. The committee is governed by state statues, state Republican rules and local by-laws. The town committee consists of fifteen members and up to ten alternates.


Our primary purpose is to seek, designate, and secure the election of capable and well-qualified candidates for public office at the local and district levels of government and to collaborate with the CTGOP and the RNC to secure the election of the most capable Republican candidates for statewide and federal offices.

America stands on four main values: Faith in God, Freedom of Speech, Family and Economic Freedom. If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.

by Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States
