Good Government Party


Good Government Party: A Ridgefield-only third party, founded in 1963, with members saying they were “dissatisfied with the leadership and control of the two existing parties,” especially with respect to the schools; ran candidates in 1963 and 1965. None won, but some came close — one collected 1,295 votes; party membership peaked at 75, and in 1971, though inactive, still had 65 members; GGP discontinued in 1981 due to inactivity. [Ridgefield Press Centenary edition]
