The mission of the Orange Democratic Town Committee (ODTC) is to improve the quality of life for Orange residents by engaging, educating, and advocating for our community. We promote the advancement of Democratic Party ideals and foster inclusive civic participation while developing and supporting Democratic Party candidates for local, state and federal office who represent the diverse voices of all Orange residents.
Monthly meetings: Third Tuesday of each month, 7pm at High Plains Community Center. Open to the public.
The ODTC is quite active during election season. We also participate in community initiatives throughout the year, including:
Orange Country Fair booth in the Civic Tent - we hand out voter registration and absentee ballot forms, and provide info about candidates, who are often there to answer questions.
The ODTC has raised or donated funds for breast cancer research, local scholarships, disaster relief efforts, the Orange fuel bank, and the Orange Food Bank.
Multiple members of the ODTC volunteered on Orange Bicentennial Committees and helped with the Bicentennial Family Dinner.
Many ODTC members are members/officers of other Orange groups - Orange Rotary, Orange Lion’s Club, Orange Players, Orange Historical Society, Orange Community Women, and Orange Recycling Committee, to name a few.
We’re neighbors and friends with Republican, Independent, and Unaffiliated voters, and while we don’t always agree on policy choices, we value the role everyone plays!
