- Welcome -

As your local Democratic Committee, we are committed to seeking, training, supporting, and electing responsible, ethical leaders to local and state government.

In particular, we see leaders aligned to Somerset County and National Democratic Party value, defined every 4 years, around ideas and policies Democrats believe will move America forward.

Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.

It's a simple but powerful idea: We Are Stronger Together
