Durham Republican Town Committee


The Mission of the Durham Republican Town Committee is to promote the principles of the party by: helping elect Republican candidates to local, state and federal offices; and, recruiting talented people to serve on town boards and commissions.


Fiscal responsibility: appropriately-sized government, operating efficiently, supported by a vibrant tax base of agricultural, commercial, industrial, and residential properties.

Appropriate regulation: regulations should serve to bolster the cohesiveness of the community, while respecting the rights of individuals, families, and businesses to contribute to the community, each in their unique way.


The DRTC meets the third Thursday each month. Meetings are held on the third floor of Durham Town Hall at 7:30 pm, and are hybrid meetings. Contact the Chair to receive details for remote participation.
