There will be a three-way race for First Selectman in Brookfield. A 38-year old Independent voter has submitted paperwork with the Town Clerk to run for the top spot in the November municipal election. Austin Monteiro, will challenge Democratic incumbent Steve Dunn and Republican endorsed Tara Carr. Monteiro was previously a registered Republican and sought an endorsement earlier this year. There is no Independent party in Brookfield so he will run as a petitioning candidate. He owned and ran a gym in Danbury for about 10 years and currently owns a coaching and consulting business.
