Rep. Scribner resigns from House, joins state commission

State Representative David Scribner has submitted his resignation to the Secretary of the State's office, effective at the close of business Tuesday.   Scribner won re-election to the Connecticut General Assembly, yet by resigning as of yesterday he will not be sworn into his new term when the 2015 session convened today.  The vacancy in the 107th district of Brookfield and parts of Danbury and Bethel occurs as of today.  Scribner is taking a job in the Liquor Control Commission. 

 

Scribner, who was recently re-elected to his house seat representing the 107th District, was first elected in a special election in 1999.

 

“I have cherished every moment of my service in the State House of Representatives, and I can’t overstate  how much it has meant to me to have been entrusted by the residents of the 107th District over the years to represent them in Hartford.  I thank the Governor for his faith in me for this new post.  I am looking forward to the new set of challenges that will accompany my new responsibilities, and I am grateful for this opportunity to continue my public service in a new and exciting way.”

 

According to Connecticut election laws, Governor Dannel Malloy has until January 17th to issue a Writ of Special Election setting a date for a special election to choose a successor.  That special election must be held in the 107th district 46 days after the writ is issued.

 

According to Connecticut state law, major parties have until 36 days prior to the special election to endorse candidates.  Petitioning candidates have eight days after the Writ of Special Election is issued to turn in signatures to get on the ballot.
