Another Democrat could be throwing his hat into the ring in the open race for Mayor of Danbury. City Councilman John Esposito III is considering seeking the mayor’s office or an at-large seat on City Council. He currently represents the 4th ward, but is not seeking reelection. Esposito and his wife are looking to buy a bigger house for their family of 4, but haven't found one in the ward. Esposito noted that he wants to continue to serve the City, as he completes his 3rd term on the Council this year. Democrat Roberto Alves recently announced that he is running for mayor. Republican Mayor Joe Cavo has not said if he will run. Cavo is finishing Mark Boughton’s term after the former mayor left to be the state’s tax commissioner. Democratic Board of Ed member Joe Britton plans to run for 4th ward Councilman alongside Democrat Farley Santos. The pair have endorsed Alves for mayor.
