Local entrepreneur Aaron Zimmer was unanimously elected Chair of the Brookfield Democrats at the June meeting held Tueday night. The move comes as part of a reogranization the Committee is undertaking to manage the enthusiasm following the 2021 municipal election.

“We saw a lot of new energy after the municipal election”, said Laura Orban, who has served as Chair since 2018. “Almost one third of our members are new to the DTC. It made sense to look at how to best organize all the new talent and excitement we had coming in, and Aaron is the perfect choice to take the reigns.”

Zimmer brings many years of experience managing and growing businesses in the private sector. A Nebraska native, he moved to NYC in the mid 2000s to pursue music business, eventually building a record label and 2 other manufacturing/retail endeavors. Like many of our new residents, Zimmer and his family left New York City at the beginning of the Pandemic and planted roots here in Brookfield.

Orban will remain on the Democratic Town Committee with her focus sharpened on campaigns. “Democrats are fired up,” said Zimmer about the reorganization of leadership. “There is a new battle to fight every day at every level of government. We’re here for Brookfield and we’re not going to leave any issue or anyone’s rights behind.”
