Call For Candidates

January 26, 2021

The Bernards Township Democratic Committee (BTDC) invites Democratic residents interested in serving to contact the BTDC Chair, Elizabeth Graner, directly at or complete the candidate application  by February 19. Two township committee seats will be up for election this November and the Democratic candidate screening will be held during the last week in February. 

“Our goal is to help elect individuals who will reflect the core values of the Democratic party, particularly fair representation of all people,” said Graner. “The recent refusal of our Township Committee, with the notable exception of Committeewoman Joan Bannan, to condemn the terrorist acts of  January 6 at the Capitol is unacceptable.  We need dissenting voices to hold our elected officials accountable.”

The Bernards Township Democratic Committee, reestablished in 2017, remains committed to identifying and supporting candidates with vision who will lead with integrity, compassion, and intelligence.
