A Republican primary is shaping up for spots on Ansonia’s Board of Education and Aldermen, the Connecticut Post reports.

Republicans Larry Pellegrino, a current member of the Planning & Zoning Commission, and Tracey DeLibero, a Water Pollution Control Authority clerk and wife of 7th Ward Alderman Frank DeLibero, are hoping to force a Sept. 12 GOP primary for the Board of Education.

Meanwhile incumbent Fourth Ward Alderman Martin Dempsey is also collecting signatures to force a GOP primary after he was not renominated by members of the Republican Town Committee. Another Fourth Ward Republican, Raymond Knott, is gathering signatures as well.

Pellegrino and DeLibero are running in response to Board of Education member Vinnie Scarlata running as a petitioning candidate for Board of Alderman in addition to being a GOP-nominated candidate for school board, the Post reports.

Dempsey and Knott have the backing of Mayor David Cassetti against incumbent Alderman Richard Kaslaitis and Ed Norman, a former chairman of the tax board and housing authority.
