Woodbury Students Form “Young Republicans” Group

New group based in Woodbury, CT offers young people the opportunity to get involved in the political process.


Woodbury students have formed a Young Republicans political group as the 2012 election season draws nearer. The group, which was founded by a mix of local high school and college age students aims to provide other young people with an opportunity to get involved in the political process.

The group will host monthly meetings to discuss the news of the day, upcoming elections cycles and how politics and government affect local youth. By doing this, the club hopes to provide students with opportunities to participate in politics at the state and local level.

The Woodbury Young Republicans Club stresses political principles such as economic freedom, personal accountability and a limited government role.

Although connected with the Republican Party, the new group encourages young people to stay informed politically and seeks to provide students with the framework to make educated decisions about their government. The group emphasizes the importance of voting and pushes students to take advantage of their voting rights, even when away at school.

The group is actively seeking new members and will host its kickoff meeting on Saturday September 15, 2012 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the . Pizza and soda will be provided.

Outstanding! Congratulations to the group. This is what our Country needs, more people informed and participating. Some advice for my fellow "senior" Republicans: learn to learn. Keep your eyes, ears, and minds open. It can be argued that our way didn't work; these people are our future. Don't let your attempts to "guide" turn into smothering demagoguery. To the young people: while you're stressing Republican principles, never lose sight of the need to be principled as well as an adherent to the principles. One of our principles is to be principled, but too many Republican politicians have demonstrated they are not principled people. If you're not principled, you're not a Republican, you're something else. Get it?
