Danbury City Council President takes over as Acting Mayor

Danbury City Council President Joe Cavo is the acting Mayor of Danbury.  He stepped into the role yesterday morning as Mayor Mark Boughton announced that he would be undergoing brain surgery.  Boughton is having a lemon-sized cyst removed from the left side of his brain today at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.


The cyst is believed to be benign, but his doctor recommended surgery sooner rather than later.  The 8-term Republican Mayor expects to make a full recovery. 


Cavo said he is keeping the Mayor and his family in his thoughts and prayers.


Cavo will be leading the City for a few weeks.  He says there are some talent people leading City departments and will be able to do their jobs with minimal supervision.  Cavo and Boughton previously discussed the possibility of having an acting Mayor, during both times that Boughton ran for governor. 


Cavo says he will be taking care of things as required in the office, but will be continuing his duties as a Fire Department mechanic.


He says the exact length of time as Acting Mayor depends on the outcome of the surgery.  He says he is hoping for a shorter term than longer because that will mean everything with the surgery and recovery went smoothly.
