Former Danbury Mayor, and current Democratic Chairman, Gene Eriquez is facing domestic assault charges. We had current Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton on the Ethan and Lou show in his regular weekly spot, and asked him to address the situation.

Here's what Mark had to say.

You have to agree with Mark on this one. No one wants to see situations like this, but unfortunately we hear about them all the time. What struck me about his answers was the part about Eriquez stepping aside from his duties with the Democratic party. Not stepping down, but aside. You would think what is best for the Democratic party, at this time, is for him to step down. Who am I to say? I do echo the sentiments of Mayor Mark, though. Our thoughts right now are with Mrs. Eriquez.
