Gates Democratic Committee News

Gates Democrats

Over 7,000 residents in the town are registered Democrats, which represents over 38% of all registered voters in Gates.

We have a very strong Democratic base from which to work.  Republican registrants number is approximately 5,500.


We strongly believe that all aspects of town government should be more accessible to the people of Gates. “Transparency, Independancy and Accountability” of the town board is needed and will not happen unless we change the current majority.

Join Us

All registered Democrats are invited to join us for our meetings at 7:30 pm on the third Thursday from February to December at the Gates Town Hall Annex Room located at the Gates Town Hall on Buffalo Road. Please join your voice to our collective call for responsive, open government that enhances our future and protects the qualities that makes Gates a great place to live.
