The Danbury Republican Town Committee will need to nominate someone to take City Councilman Joe Cavo’s place representing the 3rd ward. The City Council must then authorize the nomination. They'll also appoint a new president, from among the Council majority.
Cavo will be sworn in as Mayor on Thursday night, though the impending snow storm could bump that up to Wednesday. Mark Boughton will submit his resignation shortly before the swearing in. Boughton is starting as State Department of Revenue Services Commissioner on Friday.
Cavo will serve as Mayor until the municipal election next November. He has not said if he'll run for a full term in 2021.
