Bethel Democrats nominate Straiton as First Selectman nominee

Acting Bethel First Selectman Rich Straiton is running in the special election in February to officially take the role leading the town.  He was unanimously selected at the Democratic Town Committee caucus this week to be the candidate to face off against Republican Dan Carter.  Straiton says he's pleased the committee has the confidence in him to fill the role.  He worked alongside Matt Knickerbocker, for 13 years, before Knickerbocker resigned to take a job in Wilton last month.  The special election has been set for February 7th.
