The Stratford Democratic Town Committee is proud to announce that they will hold the fourth annual Terry Backer Dinner on Sunday, April 7 at 2:00 pm at Oronoque Country Club, 385 Oronoque Lane in Stratford.
The dinner honors our beloved long-time State Representative who served from 1992 until his untimely death in December, 2015. His good work lives on throughout our town, from our Little League Complex at Short Beach, to our community garden “The Farm at Stratford”,
to the Long Island Sound which he fought so hard to clean and maintain during his years as the Soundkeeper.
We are proud to have former Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman as our guest speaker for this special event. She has been a great friend to Stratford and we want to thank her for her continued hard work. She served in the Legislature with Terry Backer and is certain to have entertaining stories about this special man. Ms. Wyman has now stepped up to serve as Chair of the Connecticut Democratic Party. Because of all she has done, and continues to do, we are proud to announce that Nancy Wyman will be the recipient of the Terry Backer Lifetime Achievement Award.
Three SDTC members will be honored at this dinner: Monica Brill will receive the Democrat of the Year award for her hard work and inspiring campaign, Paul Tavaras will be presented the John Rich Leadership Award for his work in the South End community, and Jennifer Budai will receive the Robert Galello Award for her tireless work in coordinating volunteers.
We will also pay tribute to State Rep Phil Young, who won his seat not once but twice in a district that hadn’t elected a Democrat in 45 years and Max Rosenberg, who mobilized his friends and family and knocked on more doors than anyone and was rewarded by being elected Judge of Probate.
In addition, citations of appreciation will be presented to some of our hardest working volunteers, including those who came from neighboring towns to help.
A luncheon buffet will be served with a cash bar. Tickets are $60 each or $450 for a table of 8 and can be purchased here:
