Over the last month we've been talking with the two candidates for Danbury Mayor on a weekly basis.
Every Wednesday at 9:20 we've welcomed Danbury Democratic challenger Roberto Alves to the show. Each Thursday at 9:20, Republican incumbent Mayor Dean Esposito has been our guest. We offered our I-95 platform to the two men so the residents of Danbury could gather as much information as possible before making their decision on Election Day (Tuesday, November 7th 2023).
This week marks each candidate's final opportunity to speak to the voters directly through our 50,000 watt radio signal. Roberto Alves led things off and we asked him about his vision for the Hat City.
Look, we've heard a lot of back-and-forth between you and the Mayor on this show but what does Roberto Alves and team want to do to improve the City of Danbury?
Alves: "Thank you so much for having us on this year again and giving us the opportunity to hear from both candidates, the other side of the story. I know for the last two years you have a regular spot (weekly Interview with Mayor), and you would think Danbury is a perfect place and a rosy picture but I'm glad I'm able to, at least counter some of the things that were going on there and I appreciate it so much. When it comes down to the question and what we want to do, first and foremost it's just basic honesty, right? It's what we raise our children to be, you want them to be accountable, you want them to have integrity, above all you just want them to be honest, that is what we desperately need from the government in this country on so many levels. Clearly, the city, the municipal level here in Danbury it's been lacking and we want to bring that honesty and integrity and accountability to the city government. We want to run a government that is transparent so people get the answers. Some of your top employees, the Finance Directors when they're gone the city knows why, the city isn't left in the dark trying to find out. Again, to circle back, honest government that [inaudible], that is what we're going to bring to this city when we're sworn in, in December."
What about Downtown Danbury? I want to see Main Street make a comeback, if we're honest it could be better.
