There is a Republican mailer mix up in Danbury just days before the municipal elections. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton apologized for the misleading mailer sent to residents in the 6th Ward that mistakenly says two challengers for City Council seats are current members. The 6th Ward is currently represented by Democrats Paul Rotello and Benjamin Chianese, who are each seeking reelection.
The mailer states that Mike Negron and Theresa Keeler are serving on the City Council nd have worked tirelessly on behalf of Danbury families. The mailer was paid for by the Danbury Republican Town Committee. Boughton says photos and names were swapped out for all council candidates and a mistake was made.
Boughton is running unopposed for an 8th term as Mayor.
The Connecticut Republican Party Chairman is questioning a political consulting firm hired by the Democratic candidate for First Selectman in Brookfield. GOP chairman JR Romano issued a statement saying that the Brookfield Democratic Town Committee and candidate Steve Dunn hired a firm mired in ethical lapses and scandal.
The Vinci Group and former state Representative Geoff Luxenberg have been investigated for soliciting candidates participating in the taxpayer funded Connecticut Citizens Election Program while he was a member of the General Assembly.
Romano went on to say that Dunn talks about restoring integrity to town government while at the same time hiring a political consultant with questionable integrity.
