Another $20 grand for House special election

The state elections enforcement commission announced today that a $19,500 grant had been allocated to Democratic candidate for the 24th House district Rick Lopes. It's public campaign financing, and the Republican candidate, Peter C. Steele, was awarded a similar grant last week.
This means that a special election, scheduled for Jan. 10, can go froward. A third candidate, Thomas Bozek, a write-in, decided to opt out of public financing.
The previous rep. from the 24th House district, Tim O'Brien, won a bid to be mayor of New Britain in November.
The full release is below:
