One of the two candidates running in the special election next month for the 107th state House district seat has qualified for public campaign financing. Republican Stephen Harding is seeking to fill the seat left vacant in Brookfield and parts of Bethel and Danbury.
The requirement is to raise at least $3,750 in small contributions from a minimum of 113 people in the district. He raised over $4,000 in small contributions from more than 150 people in the district. Harding submitted his application to the state for a $20,000 grant. Harding is a Brookfield Board of Ed member.
He faces Democratic former selectman Howard Lasser in a February 24th election.
