Women and Men
I know it is difficult in today’s society to find
volunteers because both parents work and the work is often out of town with long
hours. Our political committee, and most other Middlebury committees, does not
require a huge commitment of time but only the promise to attend meetings and
contribute your experience. Our meetings are once a month, on the second Tuesday
at 7:30 pm at Shepardson Community Center, and generally last an hour. Most
other town committees have similar schedules and commitments. I believe a good
way for you to get started is to attend meetings as an observer and listen to
how your government works. Once comfortable, I think you’ll want to volunteer.
Public service is a great way to increase your political knowledge and it will
be a good life influence on your children as well.
Tom King Chairman, Middlebury Republican Town
In many cases the Middlebury Republican Town Committee is asked to recommend
candidates to help fulfill party requirements for party representation on our
municipal boards. We will interview you and keep your name on file
as positions open up.
