Sooner than you think – we are all going to be voting again! So, it’s the perfect time to volunteer for a local political organization and really get to know the candidates and issues. In addition to the two local major party committees: the Suffield Democratic Town Committee and the Suffield Republican Town Committee, the Town of Suffield has a large number of boards and commissions. If you have a special issue that is a concern or passion, volunteer for the related group. If no positions are open, check the Observer for their meeting dates and attend some of their meetings.
Want to see the exhaustive list of both elected and appointed boards and commissions, along with instructions on how to join as well as the current openings? Go to the Town’s website, www.suffieldct.gov/town/boards.
See the “Local Organizations That Welcome Volunteers” box below if you need to ask a question or discuss how you might get involved promoting party candidates or become a member of a Town board or committee.
