The purpose of this site is to inform Stonington voters about the activities of the Republican Party, and the opportunities offered to those who want to get involved. The coming election year is going to be another exciting time politically and we, at the local level, have a vital role to play.

Hopefully, you will be inspired to get involved, in some way, and help keep our party successful.

The Stonington RTC strives to: get Republicans elected to Federal, State & Local offices and to educate the electorate regarding Republican beliefs and values.

As Republicans we strive to continue the Party’s long and rich history of the following basic principles: individuals, not government, can make the best decisions; all people are entitled to equal rights; and political decisions are best made close to home.
