Special election scheduled in Bethel for First Selectman

The Bethel Board of Selectmen has held their first meeting in about a month and set a date for a special election for First Selectmen.  The meeting yesterday afternoon followed an agreement in a lawsuit over the leadership of the town.  Republican Town Committee member Dan Nostin sued several officials over the swearing in of Rich Straiton as First Selectman, rather than his appointment to the acting position following the resignation of Matt Knickerbocker. The special election will be February 7th.  During yesterday's meeting, Straiton was also appointed acting first selectman, something the Board failed to do following last November's election, which violated the town charter.
