Longtime Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton is expected to become Connecticut’s next tax commissioner. Boughton, a three-time Republican candidate for governor, is the longest serving mayor of Danbury. In his most recent bid, he proposed phasing out the state’s income tax. Governor Ned Lamont’s selection was praised by Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Martin Looney and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff who issued a joint statement last night.
