The Town of Old Lyme, Connecticut—situated where the Connecticut River meets Long Island Sound—encompasses some 27 square miles. Natural beauty abounds here, with miles of shoreline, tidal marshes and estuaries, wetlands, lakes, and numerous conservation areas available for hiking, boating, kayaking, and exploring. Known for its excellent schools, low taxes, a strong arts community, and a history of volunteerism among its residents, Old Lyme is a delightful town to live in!

    The Old Lyme Republican Town Committee is proud to be a part of this vibrant community. The women and men of the committee work to elect candidates that will help preserve Old Lyme’s natural beauty, keep our schools strong and locally controlled, maintain fiscal responsibility of taxpayer funds, support our local businesses, and protect our citizens. We encourage you to keep up with the Old Lyme RTC by following us on Facebook and Instagram, and subscribing to our email list (form below). The Committee meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm in Town Hall. We invite you to join us!
