The Danbury Fraternal Order of Police has endorsed Republican Dean Esposito to be the next Mayor of Danbury. This is the first time the organization has made an endorsement in a Danbury Mayoral campaign. Esposito has served as Chief of Staff to former Mayor Mark Bought and is currently serving in the same role under Joe Cavo. Danbury has consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in Connecticut over the years. In a written statement on the endorsement, Esposito says he'll ensure Danbury Police are equipped with the training and technology required to serve and protect the Danbury community. He is one of the two candidates vying for the City's top spot. Democrat Robert Alves is also seeking the open seat.
