Republican Tony Scott won Tuesday's special election for the state House of Representative's 112th District seat, which was left vacant when former state Rep. JP Sredzinski stepped down.
He won by 7% over Democrat Nick Kapoor for the seat, which represents Monroe and Newtown.
Scott previously served on the Town Council in Monroe and is a good friend of Sredzinski.
He says he plans to fight to lower taxes and to stop unfunded mandates.
Sredzinski said of Scott's victory, "It's a difficult job and Tony has what it takes to get it done. I am confident Tony will pick up where I left off and serve the 112th with distinction and respect."
Scott says he's anxious to get to Hartford but he's just not sure when that's going to happen.
Bill Furrier, from Sandy Hook, ran as an Independent. He finished third.
