Our Mission

The Sussex County Democratic Committee (SCDC) is the legal entity representing the Democratic Party in Sussex County, New Jersey.

Members of the Committee are elected by registered Democrats who live in the county. Two registered Democrats from each election district may serve on the committee.

The primary mission of the SCDC is, through the political system, to promote the principles of the national Democratic Party here in Sussex County. We seek to identify and support candidates for public office whose ideals and approach are compatible with our core principles.

We are committed to growing the membership and influence of the Democratic party in Sussex County by forging strong relationships with its communities and giving them a voice in all levels of government. We will also align with local organizations who share our core principles, and work together to achieve common goals.

The Committee meets about eight times a year. Our meetings are open to the public, and all are welcome to attend.
