We are part of the community

We offer the annual Paula K. Dambroff Memorial Award for Civic Leadership to an exceptional high-school senior.

We take a table at the Ferry Festa to connect with the community.

We collaborate with other Democratic Committees in the Rivertowns to sponsor forums to inform and educate the public on current issues.

​We contribute to worthy causes at the Village level and beyond.

Who we are

We are Dobbs Ferry residents who were publicly elected to represent each and every neighborhood in the Village.

We meet regularly in open, publicized meetings to discuss and take positions on policy issues -- and we are the only political organization in the Village that does so.

We inform and have a dialogue with our elected officials.

We cultivate, vet, and endorse qualified individuals as candidates for public office.

​We run issue-oriented campaigns.

We share two basic principles

We expect our candidates, our elected officials, and our committee members to act with integrity for the good of the Village.

​We believe that government can strengthen communities and improve people's lives.
