Mark your calendars. On Feb. 22 a special election will fill the state assembly seat vacated by Chris Caruso who’s taken a job with the Malloy administration. A candidate forum will take place tonight (Tuesday) at the Lake Forest Clubhouse on Frenchtown Road. Connecticut’s 126th Assembly District includes parts of the North End and Upper East Side. Here’s your chance to hear from the candidates and ask them what kind of ride operation they’ll have if we get another snowstorm. Break out the dog sleds.
