Join Us to Talk With Greenwich Voters!

Our Candidates from the Democratic and Open Government Parties are out in the community talking with voters about what they want from Greenwich’s Town Council. They need your help to reach as many homes in our Town as possible before Election Day, less than 5 weeks away.

Please sign up on our SignUp.com calendar to let them know when you can give a couple of hours.  Speaking directly with voters is not the only aspect of canvassing.  We also need volunteers who will partner up to take notes on voters’ issues and questions, help distributing materials and drive canvassers to the rural parts of our Town.  We will provide you with everything you need.

The dates are all weekends. Please click the button below to learn more and sign up. Thanks for participating and helping us win on November 5!

Celebrating and Protecting Open Government

Protecting and expanding New York’s legal tradition of guaranteeing the public’s right to know what our government is or is not doing is the purpose Candidates Sara Idleman, Audrey Fischer and Pat Donahue are running for.  Far beyond living up to the letter of the law, they believe open government goes beyond responding to FOIL requests or having the public sit in on meetings.  It means upholding and enhancing the spirit and intent of the law and opening up the full process of governing to the people.

Once in office, they pledge to continue this dialogue and to fulfill the vision of the Sunshine Laws to engage with Town residents, to ask for their input for solutions to problems as well as for new ideas to enhance the quality of life in Greenwich.  They will form citizen task forces and advisory groups.  Most importantly, they will act on the recommendations that arise from these efforts.

Your vote for Sara, Audrey and Pat is what will make the 45th anniversary of New York’s Sunshine Laws the year real open government comes to Greenwich.
