Things are moving quickly in Brookfield to name a successor to state Representative David Scribner. Governor Malloy announced on Friday that a special election would be held February 24th to replace the Republican he named to a post in the Consumer Protection Department. That means candidates names have to be sent to the Secretary of the State's office by this Friday.
Republican convention temporary chairman Robert Belden says he anticipates there will be between three and seven candidates.
A meet and greet event will be held Wednesday, and the nomination will be made Thursday. Both events will be at 7pm at Golf Quest. The public is invited to both events.
Any Republican interested in running for the open seat should contact Robert Belden at 203-240-1345.
