Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says if he is elected governor, he would support gambling expansion, including betting on sports. Boughton told the Journal Inquirer Tuesday that he remains skeptical of legalizing recreational marijuana, but would not rule it out.
Among his other proposals is elimination of the state Board of Regents of Higher Education. In the past, he's called it a political dumping ground for people that can't find jobs in the private sector.
Boughton was also critical of the salary and fringe benefits for UConn's president, which amounts to more than $794,000 per year, according to transparency.ct.gov. He pointed to two houses and a driver as being offensive.
