Former Alderman Rick Lopes took the oath of office as the 24th District State Representative in ceremonies on Friday in the House Chamber of the State Capitol with Secretary of the State Denise Merrill presiding. The ceremony was attended by approximately 60 elected officials, friends and supporters of Lopes who succeeds Tim O’Brien in the legislative seat. O’Brien vacated the office when he was elected New Britain Mayor last November. Lopes was joined by his new colleagues in the New Britain delegation: State Senator Terry Gerratana, State Reps. Betty Boukus, Bob Sanchez and Peter Tercyak.
The General Assembly convenes for the 2012 session on February 8th. Lopes’ committee assignments have yet to be announced.
