Just in time for the campaign season

From the mayor who makes it a habit to pave roads to satify potential voters residents, here's
Mark Boughton's latest "Politics over People" moment.
A bulldozer on Foster Street sent a powerful signal to Danbury educators on Monday that some of the city's school space issues could be relieved by next fall.


Danbury bought the Foster Street building in 2005 with plans to renovate it for the Head Start preschool program and to free up classrooms Head Start uses in other city schools.

The city since determined it would be more cost efficient to demolish the building and build anew. It plans to put up a 30,000-square-foot modular building that will be ready for the Head Start program in the fall.

"We're on goal, and the intent is to have the building open in the fall of 2012," Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said Monday. "This is a nice-looking building."

When it comes to this project, In typical fashion Boughton is being so dishonest with the public that it's laughable for those who know the real story bend the head start project...unfortunately our fearless mayor is too much of a lying coward to debate Lynn Taborsak on this subject as well as a laundry list of failures under his ten year watch.

...but wait, the man who for YEARS refused the Democrats request to fill the position of full time economic developer most likely blew up Dirk Perrefort's cell phone pitching this scam of a story to the News-Times.
City officials have whittled down the dozens of applications received for the economic development director position to the final three candidates.

Mayor Mark Boughton said Monday he hopes to interview job finalists by next week and announce the new hire next month.


Boughton has said that while the new economic development director would be responsible for generating economic growth throughout the city, a focus would be placed on downtown renewal efforts.

A Main Street Renaissance Task Force examining downtown renewal earlier this year recommended that a full-time director be hired and that a Main Street partnership begun to help spur growth in CityCenter.

Boughton said he intends to announce members of the new partnership next month in conjunction with announcing the new director.

I guess this nonsense from Boughton will go good with his latest dishonest mailer...

...I think I'm going to be sick.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
