Danbury Democrat announces plan to run for Mayor in November

A Danbury Democrat has announced his intention to run for Mayor in November. City Councilman At-Large Roberto Alves says like many communities, Danbury is at a turning point. 

The 37-year old father of two young children works at Cartus.  He works with a global team to create efficiencies for businesses, with a focus on customer service.  Shortly after becoming a U.S. citizen, Alves ran for City Council in 2017. He lost, but ran again two year later and won an at-large seat. 

He says there are important challenges that will affect the future of small businesses, families, and neighbors.  Alves added that too many Danbury families have suffered because leaders at all levels — from Washington down to the City-level — have failed them.  Alves says the City needs a leader who can take on these critical challenges, and that he's ready to build Danbury back better and to be more equitable for all.

Democratic Town Committee Chair Andrea Gartner says Alves steps up to the plate again and again.  She noted that through the pandemic he’s undertaken hosting food and toy drives, organizing food distributions, and educating the community on civic engagement also while serving as Councilman At-Large.

Vice-Chair Joe DaSilva Jr. says the energy, courage, and commitment Alves brings to working for the people of Danbury is unmatched.

"From asking the hard questions on the City Council to make sure our tax dollars are wisely spent to helping lead a food and toy drive at Christmas, Roberto is always willing to roll up his sleeves and do the hard work for the people of Danbury. As Mayor, he won't be afraid of the questions and won't ever stop fighting for the people of Danbury."
