Keeping the democratic process open and public is the best defense against corruption of the system. To that end, much of our process is required to be public as a matter of compliance with committee by-laws, state, or federal laws. Membership in the WDTC, or serving as an officer of the WDTC is a matter of public record.
When filling out forms and volunteering your information, your info is shared with the WDTC, and your contact information may be passed on the the most appropriate members to coordinate with.
When contributing funds or items of value to the WDTC, you contribution information is a part of the town committee records for no less than 4 years. Name, address profession, and in some cases, employer information also filed with the Stat Elections Enforcement Commission in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes Chapters 155 to 157 and become a matter of public record.
Children under the age of 18 may contribute no more than $30 to the WDTC in a given year. Name, address, and the fact they are under 18 are filed with the state as well.
As you involve others in the WDTC, their contact information may be collected and used by WDTC members to further involve them in the committee. These contacts may ask that we tailor our communication to them, or remove them from out contact lists entirely.
The WDTC does not integrate our system with third parties.
We will provide notice to you if these changes are material and, where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent. Such notice will be provided on the WDTC website.
