Welcome to the PDC!
Members of the PDC are the voices of registered Democrats in the 56 election districts throughout the Town of Perinton, NY including the Village of Fairport. Committee members represent their neighborhood Democrats in finding solutions to local problems, educating the public, recruiting Democratic candidates to run for office, and assisting these candidates in winning elections. We carry out the progressive values of both the PDC, and the Monroe County Democratic Committee in a democratic, inviting, and inclusive manner with the goal of having more people actively involved and joining our exciting and dynamic committee.
The Democratic Party is now the largest political party of enrolled voters in the Town of Perinton. This extraordinary growth demonstrates that we are an effective, vibrant, growing voice for Perinton voters at a time when other major political parties have seen their numbers steadily decrease.
We are looking for new Democrats to become members of the Committee and invite high school and college students to join us in order to both participate and learn more about how government, elections, and political parties work. Please contact us to find out more.
