Our Values

Claverack Democrats are committed to putting our core democratic values to work on a grassroots level. Our strength comes from our beliefs of honoring inclusion and diversity; respect for liberty, equality and justice; and improving the quality of life for all in our Town of Claverack and Village of Philmont community.


• We work to elect leaders locally, county-wide and for higher offices.

• We value open, transparent governance, and free and fair elections.

• We encourage community participation in public meetings, on boards and committees.  

• We support policies that protect our environment, grow good paying jobs and careers, and promote a sustainable future. 

• We believe quality education should prepare youth for success, and programs for residents should stimulate wellness and learning.

• We recognize our agricultural economy and our beautiful greenspaces as both our history and our future. 

The town and village have a rich and historic past, which we value and want to protect, as well as advocating for its stable and secure future. Preserving and protecting our environment, our agricultural resources, our rural character, and our historic architecture are at the heart of our local economy. We advocate for strengthening our schools and our infrastructure, and supporting the growth of our local businesses so that they can provide jobs locally and attract families and new residents to our community.
