Growth, economy top issues in Danbury mayoral race

The News-Times July, 26 2019

DANBURY – The battle for City Hall may come down to which version of Danbury voters recognize – a low-crime city that’s growing at a state-leading pace, or a struggling city that’s paying the price on roads and in schools for unregulated housing growth on the west side.

While it’s too early in the election season for lawn signs and attack adds, the race for the city’s top elected position between GOP Mayor Mark Boughton and Democratic former City Council president Chris Setaro is taking shape over the state of Danbury’s economy, its schools and its quality of life.
