Special House Election July 22

There will be a special election in the 122nd State House District (Shelton, Stratford and Trumbull) on Tuesday, July 22, to complete the term of State Rep. Larry Miller, who died in May.

Contending in the special election will be Democrat Arlene Liscinsky and Republican Ben McGorty. The winner will represent the district for the rest of 2014.

In November, however, voters will elect a state representative to serve a full two-year term to begin in January.

A primary in the district on Aug. 12 will determine the party’s candidate for the fall election. At present, petitioning candidate Mike Vickerelli will vie for the nomination with McGorty.
