Massachusetts Democrats believe that every person has the right to live a full, meaningful life with equal access to opportunity, security, and inclusion. We believe that our government exists to empower people by providing high-quality public education, ensuring universal access to healthcare, protecting our environment, reducing income inequality, and guaranteeing equal rights and opportunity for all. We believe that when we empower people to organize their local communities, we can change our Commonwealth and our country for the better.
Our Elected Representatives
How to Join the IDTC
Who can be a member?
Registered Democrats who live in Ipswich. Membership is limited to 35.
How do I join the Committee?
Regular members join in one of two ways: by being elected to the Committee in the Presidential Primary Election (names are submitted to the Town Clerk for the ballot), or by being elected to the Committee upon attending three meetings, by vote of the committee members.
Associate members are appointed by vote of the Committee. They may attend meetings, but may not vote on committee business or serve as officers.
The term of office for members begins at the first meeting after the Presidential Primary Election (or as soon as they’re elected at a Committee meeting), and ends at the first meeting after the next Presidential Primary Election.
