Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton is discussing his seizure brought on from dehydration last week during a GOP gubernatorial candidate event in Avon. He told reporters that he doesn't remember if he took his anti-seizure medication that day and hadn't eaten enough leading up to the forum. He also didn't drink enough, leading to severe dehydration.
Boughton says the episode wasn't related to last year's brain surgery to remove a noncancerous tumor. He was on the anti-seizure medication as a precaution. When he announced his gubernatorial bid, Boughton said he would make his medical records public and repeated that offer now.
Boughton plans to exercise more and has hired a nutritionist.
