Councilor elected Cromwell Democrat of the Year

CROMWELL РCity Councilor James Demetriades was honored on Friday as Cromwell Democrat of the Year during a ceremony at Caf̩ Fiore on Berlin Road.

“Getting involved in local politics is giving back to your community and I think my actions have done just that,” Demetriades said in an email. He was 23 when he first ran for the board in 2017 as a law student and still living with his parents.

Now he owns a house in town and works as a labor and employee rights lawyer.

He has served as president of the non-profit Cromwell Creative District, as well as a liaison with the LGBTQ, equity and diversity inclusion and planning and zoning commissions, and served on the youth advisory council, Demetriades said.

“These collective, elected and appointed volunteer positions have brought me closer to my hometown and continue to push me to fight to make our community as strong, sustainable, transparent and vibrant as possible,” he said. “While I may not have voted a majority for every action our board takes, I think I have shown that you can disagree without being disagreeable. “

Demetriades plans to continue leading his party and championing policies that will make the community a more sustainable, affordable and welcoming place to live, he added.
