Running for Elected Office

We begin recruiting candidates for local office in January of the municipal election year.  This process typically continues up to the Caucus, which is held in July.  Candidates should plan on attending at least one RTC meeting to introduce themselves and to request the endorsement of the Town Committee.

Municipal Offices

Municipal elections are held in odd-numbered years for positions on the following Boards and Commissions:

Applying for Appointment to Office

Individuals can apply to serve on any Board, Commission, or Committee that is not determined by election.  To do so you may apply online at the town website at this link https://clintonct.org/101/Boards-Commissions

The RTC Chairman will be made aware of your application and may reach out to talk to you in preparation of endorsing you before the Town Council.  You will be expected to attend a Town Council meeting where the council will vote to appoint you to the position.
