The National Education Association has made an endorsement for a Danbury Mayoral candidate for the firs time in over 10 years.  NEA Danbury is backing Democratic Councilman Roberto Alves.  The union said in their announcement that as a parent of two children attending Danbury Public Schools, Alves knows how underfunding the schools for over a decade has impacted the community and children.

Meanwhile Republican candidate Dean Esposito has released a statement about education and the pandemic.  He plans to continue to advocate for a Public Charter School in downtown Danbury.  A private donor has proposed building the school, and State funding could be used to operate it.

The Danbury Citywide PTO is hosting a Mayoral debate next month.  The debate is Wednesday, October 6 at 6pm.  It will be held in-person in the Danbury High School auditorium.  Masks are required.  Several Board of Education candidates will also be at the debate. 

So far there are two mayoral debates planned.  The other is being hosted by the Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce on October 13th.  That event is virtual, via Zoom at 7pm.  Registration is required.
