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.  Monteiro says one of his goals is to finish the Four Corners redevelopment project, wants to do that by filling empty storefronts.  In addition to traditional campaigning of going door to door to introduce himself, Monteiro says he's relying on a social media presence to reach young people and give them a voice.  He's also hosting a meet and greet at JJ Stack on Sunday at 9:30am.
