The race has been set for the 135th state House District contest in November. The position is being vacated by Redding Republican John Shaban, who is running for Congress. The district also includes Easton and Weston.
Easton First Selectman Adam Dunsby has been nominated by the Republicans to be their candidate. He is currently serving his second term leading the town. It's a part time position, and Dunsby says he plans to continue serving locally if elected to Hartford--another part time position.
He will be challenged by Bonnie Troy of Weston. She is a member of the Green Party, but has been cross endorsed by the Democrats.
