Whether through community events, policy discussions, or volunteer opportunities, the Huntington Republican Committee is working hard to engage with students and young professionals throughout our township. Millennials recognize that Democrats' big-government policies are failing our town and county, our state, and our nation -- and we want millennials to know the Republican Party is fighting for a better future.
The Huntington Young Republicans are a group of Young Republicans from the Huntington Township, New York. We are an inclusive coalition of Young Professionals, 18-35, that support the Republican Party in Huntington and across Suffolk County. Our social group aims to engage the Huntington community through social, networking, philanthropic, and educational opportunities!
