The 21-year-old is back living at his boyhood home with his parents, but he’s also helping to run a mayoral campaign in Stamford and was recently chosen as chairman of Wilton’s Democratic Town Committee.
He’s the youngest person to ever hold that post in either of the town’s party committees and state Democratic officials said this week that he might be the youngest person to lead a town committee in the history of Connecticut.
Dec said he wants the local party to diversify, especially in terms of its age. Getting more young people involved in the party, he said, could be the key improving Democrats’ chances in Wilton.
“I’d like to reach out to them and bring an unprecedented level of engagement into the position,” Dec said. “I think my election was indicative that people are ready for that change.”
