Danbury Mayor-Elect Dean Esposito will take the oath of office tonight. A prayer service at the First Congregational Church of Danbury for all Danbury elected officials and then a procession from City Hall concludes at the Palace Theater.
The procession will leave from City Hall at the corner of Deer Hill Avenue and West Street and use the right lane, toward Main Street. Police will be escorting the group across Main Street. Drivers are asked to use caution in the area and expect some delays. There will also be a brief closure of Main Street as the procession moves across toward the Palace Theater.
The swearing in will begin at 6pm, with state Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Mark Boughton serving as the Master of Ceremonies. Probate Judge Dianne Yamin will swear Esposito into office, and Chief Legal Officer Robert Yamin will swear in all other elected officials.
