Through its activities, the Morris Plains Democratic Committee (MPDC) gathers Democrats to serve our citizens by:
providing a forum for information and exchange of ideas on important local and state issues;
being an incubator for proposals, strategies, and candidates to support Democratic ideals and policy positions;
engaging in the local electoral process;
serving our community through non-partisan activities.
Be an active Democrat in our community!
Consider joining us to shape the community we care about. It's up to each one of us to resolve how we will be an active Borough citizen.
Your values, talents, and experience are needed:
— on Borough Council. Our governing body consists of the Mayor and six Council members. The Mayor votes only when the Council is tied on a matter. Currently, votes on the Council are taken by four Republicans and two Democrats. MPDC's role is to ensure Democrats are represented in Morris Plains. We have the experience and the know-how to support our Democratic candidates every step of the way. To learn more about the Council and about being a candidate,
contact John Verga here.
— on Borough boards, committees and commissions. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available to serve our community. We need ALL voices heard in the Community of Caring! Play a part! Learn more here.
— on the Morris Plains Democratic Committee. Help us listen to and engage with Morris Plains Democrats. Our town is growing and help is needed. Our job is to keep voters informed and to encourage Morris Plains Democrats to be active in their local government. Want to learn more? Contact Tina Genest here.
