Bye Bye Boughton…and Post and Email…8/7/17

Danbury’s neocon mayor Mark Boughton, who has been a named bantered around as a Republican nominee for governor, should drop out of the race.  And the reason is serious.

The News-Times, the city’s corporate-owned rag and spin machine reports the mayor will need to undergo brain surgery.

The purpose is to “remove a benign tumor from his brain,” the paper reports.

 

Boughton, who was first elected mayor in 2001 and re-elected seven times since (Danbury, unlike the bigger cities of Bridgeport and Stamford, has two-year terms), said he had been suffering recently from dizzy spells and increasingly severe headaches.

After a major dizzy spell on advice from his doctor, Boughton was sent to the emergency room at Danbury Hospital. The epidermoid cyst was diagnosed after tests, including CT and MRI scans.

The paper says the tumor “is about the size of a lemon” and likely had been growing slowly for many years.

Looking at his time in office, the News-Times reports

His political strength rests largely on his record in Danbury, which he touts as a thriving city of 80,000 that weathered the state’s economic malaise better than its larger peers.

Which would include Democratic mayors like Stamford’s David Martin or Bridgeport’s Joe Ganim.

WLAD Radio, the city’s co-called locally owned radio station reports the mayor was expressing thanks for his support as he readies for brain surgery at a hospital in Pittsburgh.

“He says he’s fortunate that his health will be improved after this procedure.  He was also reminded of all of the people that must endure much more rigorous treatments” the station said.

But for a medical emergency like Boughton’s though minor it may be, it could at his age of 53 come back.  And to run a state, it can take a lot out of you.

Just for this, I am asking Mr. Boughton to keep his hat out of the gubernatorial ring and stay as the mayor of Hat City as long as he can.
