NORWALK, Conn. – Five potential Board of Education candidates will introduce themselves Thursday evening to the Norwalk Republican Town Committee .
There are four slots for Republican At-Large BOE candidates in the fall election. Current BOE members Sue Haynie and Artie Kassimis are seeking re-election, RTC Chairman Art Scialabba said. Also seeking Republican nominations are Lauren Rosato, John Bazzano and Linda Kruk. Those are the people invited to speak to the RTC.
