We’ve updated our platform for 2019

The Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee’s platform statement has been updated for 2019. Our new platform is available here.

The SSDC’s 2019 platform includes five overall policy goals:

  • Protect democracy in local government
  • Safeguard our “City in the Country,” protecting open space and environment
  • Preserve and enhance public health and safety
  • Promote economic opportunity for all
  • Maintain and upgrade physical and technology infrastructure

The complete platform sets forth specific priorities under each of these headings.

“We want people to know where we stand,” said SSDC Chair Courtney DeLeonardis. “Our platform embraces the principles of the national Democratic Party and brings them into the local civic discussion. As always, this year’s platform expresses the mission of the Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee, which promotes open and inclusive governance for Saratoga Springs, to maintain and continually improve the quality of life for all City residents.”

“As Democrats, we believe in grassroots communication to strengthen people’s understanding of Democratic Party principles, and we encourage and support Democratic candidates who aspire to local positions. We ask that the elected leadership of Saratoga Springs commit to be guided by these principles for the future of the community we love,” DeLeonardis said.

“Adoption of a current local platform is part of the SSDC’s overall process to work for successful election of the most qualified candidates for office in Saratoga Springs,” DeLeonardis added. “This platform is now being reviewed in interviews with prospective candidates who seek the SSDC’s endorsement in 2019.”
