The election of Toni Harp as Mayor of New Haven means that city's residents get another bite at the apple to elect a state senator who's deeply committed to making Connecticut a better place to bike and walk.
The special election to fill a vacancy in the State Senate representing the 10th Senatorial District, which covers portions of New Haven and West Haven, will be held on Tuesday, February 25, 2014.
Bike Walk Connecticut urges residents of Senate District 10 to press candidates on how they will make Connecticut and New Haven more bike and pedestrian friendly.
Update: According to the New Haven Independent, three candidates so far have declared their candidacies: state Reps. Gary Holder-Winfield and Juan Candelaria and former West Rock Alderman Darnell Goldson.
The musical chairs could continue. If a State Rep is elected to the senate seat, that means a state rep seat would then open up as well.
