Our Mission

The Seneca County Democratic Committee (SCDC) is an organization that works to advance Democratic candidates and values throughout the County. Members are elected by each town; two members for each voting district within the town.



SCDC promotes Democratic ideals that reflect our local needs and issues. In Seneca County these issues include:

  • Creating a vibrant, welcoming community in a clean and healthy environment;
  • Promoting job opportunities that will retain our young residents into the next generation;
  • Supporting public and private efforts to create and maintain safe, decent, affordable housing;
  • Supporting public and private efforts to address mental health and addiction;
  • Supporting full equality for women, minorities, disabled persons and LGBTQ persons;
  • Investing in our children’s education; and 
  • Advocating for reduction of gun violence.
