Thank you for visiting the Shelter Island Town Republican Committee website and for taking time to learn more about us.As Republicans, we believe that what sets our country apart is the freedom of the individual to strive to achieve his or her own vision of the American dream subject only to the responsibility to respect the rights of each other person to do the same. We recognize that an honest and competent government is necessary to achieve these goals but believe that the power of that government, no matter how well meaning, must be limited in scope so as to protect the “inalienable rights” of the people. Lastly, we believe in running good candidates for office who will campaign on the strength of their ideas and govern by the strength of their ideals.
The Republican Party in Shelter Island is committed to the belief that good government makes good politics, and we are open to any and all who want to make a difference.
On local issues, we believe in sound fiscal management of the town: controlling costs, keeping taxes low, making sure our financial future is secure. Always with this in mind we must also maintain our infrastructure, preserve our environment and protect our community.. We believe in well thought out, balanced regulations that protect our environment and way of life while not trampling on the basic freedoms of our citizens,
We want you to know as much as possible about our candidates: where they stand on issues, and what you can expect them to do in Town hall once they are elected. To this end, we hope you will take the time to get to know our candidates both in these pages and at our events as we believe that the more you know about them the more likely you will be to trust them with the future of our Island.
We hope you want to become more involved in both your local government and your Republican Party. As important as it is that we communicate with you directly about the accomplishments in Town Hall and the current campaign, it is even more important that we hear from you about your hopes, dreams and concerns for Shelter Island's future. If anyone is interested in getting involved at any level, I urge you to please contact us. There is plenty to do and all are welcome!
