The Danbury Democratic Town Committee has a new leader.  Longtime chairman, former 6-term mayor, Gene Eriquez  stepped down and will be replaced by Andrea Gartner. The former City Center executive director was selected by the committee unanimously at their meeting Monday night.  Eriquez stepped aside as chairman in 2016 after he was charged with domestic assault, but moved back into the role after the charges were dismissed last year.  Gartner owns a Cafe on Main Street and was recently elected to the City's Zoning Commission.
