NEW BRITAIN - Legislative candidate Gennaro Bizzarro has announced that his campaign will have a leadership group rather than a traditional manager.
Bizzarro, a Republican running in the 24th House District, said his advisory group will include Gerry Amodio, Peter Denuzze, Harry Mazadoorian, Willie Pabon, Peter Steele, Arthur Szafranski, Theresa Gogluicci and Mary Marrocco.
Lisa Carver is the campaign treasurer and Paul Carver is deputy treasurer.
Mayor Erin Stewart appointed Bizzarro as city attorney when she took office last winter. He also was city attorney under former Mayor Timothy Stewart, but was replaced when Tim O'Brien served as mayor from 2011 to 2013.
The 24th District includes sections of New Britain and Newington. Democratic incumbent Rick Lopes is seeking re-election.
