Issues & Policies

Bridgeport voters head to the polls in a May 7 special election to fill the remaining vacant Connecticut state House seat.

The 130th District, covering a portion of Bridgeport, was held by Democratic state Rep. Ezequiel Santiago, who passed away unexpectedly in March.

Santiago was reelected last November with 89% of the vote, defeating Republican challenger Terrence Sullivan.

Four Democrats and one Republican have filed to run for the Bridgeport seat.

Antonio Felipe, 23, is the Democratic nominee. Three other Democrats—former state representatives Christina Ayala and Hector Diaz, and Kate Rivera—filed as petitioning candidates.

The Republican candidate is Joshua Parrow, the assistant director of development at the University of Bridgeport.

Polling locations are open 6 am-8 pm on Tuesday, May 7.
