The Somerville Democratic City Committee welcomes you to our website and to political activism in Somerville. The SDCC is a vital part of the political scene in Somerville and brings together people who are interested in politics and who are committed to the values of the Democratic Party. There is an active Ward Committee in each of the seven wards in Somerville which needs you to get involved. <link to wards page>
The SDCC consists of the members of each of the seven Democratic Ward Committees in the city of Somerville. Members of each ward committee are either elected every four years as part of the Democratic presidential primary, are appointed in the interim to fill vacancies, serve ex officio as elected officials or are emeritus members after twenty years of service. Every ward committee invites Democrats from their ward to get involved, serve as a member of the ward committee or as an associate member. The ward committees are the grass roots foundation of the Democratic Party in Somerville as they are around the country.
Being involved in your ward committee has many benefits. You will meet many new, interesting people in your community. You will get to know the local elected officials from City Hall, the State House and Congress. You will have the opportunity to learn how your democracy works at every level of organization. You will find out about pressing issues and you can express your opinion about them. In addition to these personal benefits you will help weaving the fabric that creates a vibrant community.
