As the media volley between Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and Comedian John Oliver continues, the Mayor shared some wonderful news with the Ethan and Lou Show Thursday morning (9/10/20), saying:

He did, and we're very grateful for this, payoff a lot, almost all of our teachers requests. There's a website, I can't think of the name of it, where you can say 'oh I need a new smart board and you know, can you help me'. It's sort of like a Go Fund Me for teachers. He paid all the Danbury requests off, about $26,000 worth, he did that on Labor Day. So, very grateful and I thought that was a really nice gesture on his part.

Well, I read this entire thing wrong from the beginning, good for John Oliver and I no longer want to fight him. I am wrong, I was wrong and I have no problem being wrong about a situation that ends up benefiting our city's schools.

I know what some of you might be saying, "you were way wrong." I was, when he first offered money, I argued against taking it, I acted like a baby because I was not involved in this media circus that I so badly wanted to be involved with. I am over it, good on you John and thank you for helping out the Hat City.

P.S. I reserve the right to change my mind, I reserve the right to be wrong and I reserve the right to change my mind again, later, should I get pissed off again. 

Below is a portion of the Ethan and Lou segment with the Danbury Mayor where he addresses the gift from Oliver.
