Another candidate has entered the race for a Special Election to the state House. Former Newtown Selectman William Furrier has been endorsed by the state Independent Party in the the 112th District. The chemical engineer is seeking to represent Monroe and part of Newtown following the resignation of JP Sredzinski, a four-term Republican. Furrier said in a statement that the Party represents a new and important nonpartisan approach to government. Monroe Republican Town Councilman Tony Scott and Monroe Democratic Board of Education member Nick Kapoor are also in the running. The special election will be held on April 13th.
