The Clinton, Killingworth, and Westbrook Democratic Town Committees are co-hosting an event featuring candidates that will be running for Constitutional offices in the State of Connecticut in the 2018 elections. Candidates to be announced.
We invite Madison Democrats to join the Town Committee at the local March for our Lives event in Guilford, CT being held this Saturday, March 24th from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at the Guilford Green. Join with us as part of a national movement to demand an end to gun violence by speaking out in favor of stronger and more sensible gun legislation. The event will feature a one-mile walk and a host of speakers including local students, advocacy groups, State Representatives Sean Scanlon and Lonnie Reed, and Senator Richard Blumenthal. So get out your comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, and make a sign to carry as we stand in solidarity against gun violence in our country.
If you would like to march with the Madison Democrats, please contact Pam Greene for instructions about where to meet. (We will also post this information here on our website if you want to check back in later this week.)

The Madison Board of Selectman will hold a public hearing on an ordinance prohibiting waste associated with natural gas and oil extraction through a process known as “fracking” in the town of Madison. The hearing is scheduled for Monday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. in Town Campus Room A. Link here to read a draft of the proposed ordinance.
The Madison Democratic Town Committee passed the following resolution regarding the ban of fracking waste at its regular meeting on March 12: “It is resolved that the Madison Democratic Town Committee supports the adoption of a town ordinance prohibiting the storage, handling, treatment, disposal and use of all waste derived from natural gas and oil extraction processes in order to protect public health and safety and the quality of natural resources and property within the Town of Madison, and we urge the Madison Board of Selectmen to pass an ordinance that is substantively the same as the ordinance passed by at least 35 other Connecticut towns thus far.”
There is some concern on the part of supporters of the fracking waste ban that a change made to the original ordinance “Prohibitions” would allow materials containing fracking wastes in our town if they received “Beneficial Use Determination or other approval for use by the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP).” We encourage people to come out to support the ordinance while making it clear that language allowing any fracking waste should be eliminated from the final ordinance.
Please contact Susan Glantz for more information.
The Westbrook Democratic Town Committee is co-hosting an event with the Killingworth and Clinton DTCs to meet Connecticut’s Democratic candidates for the office of Governor. Gubernatorial candidates Ned Lamont and Jonathan Harris will be on hand to speak and field questions.
