2021 Greater Danbury Election Results: Complete Rundown On Mayors + First Selectmen
2021 has been an interesting year in local politics and events in the Greater Danbury area and the Ethan and Lou Show has been along for the ride paying close attention to the local campaigns.
It goes without saying that we spent a majority of our time on the Danbury Mayoral election but there were other important spots to be determined throughout the Greater Danbury area. Here are the top line results from throughout the Greater Danbury area.
- Republican Dean Esposito defeats Democrat Roberto Alves for Mayor.
- Democrat Matt Knickerbocker ran unopposed and won First Selectman.
- Republican Tara Carr defeated Democrat Steve Dunn and unaffiliated Austin Monteiro to win First Selectman.
- Newtown First Selectman Dan Rosenthal ran unopposed and was re-elected to First Selectman.
New Milford -
- Republican Mayor Pete Bass was elected to his third term as Mayor after defeating Democrat Ted Hine.
Others Races we followed on the Ethan and Lou Show -
- Republican and now, former Mayor Joe Cavo won an at-large seat on the City Council where he was President prior to taking over as Mayor for Mark Boughton
- Republican Kevin McConville upended Democrat Robert Langley. McConville is the new Putnam County Sheriff
I'm most happy for Joe Cavo, in getting to know Cavo over the last year I know he's a person who truly cares about his city and will do anything to help the residents of Danbury.
We watched Joe step into unusual circumstances replacing a wildly popular Mayor during the most difficult of times, in the heart of a global pandemic. Joe exhibited strength and world-class leadership in 2021.
I know he felt it was his duty and we are all lucky to have had him in the role of Mayor during this trying period in Danbury and America. Now he gets to return to City Council where he wanted to be in the first place. His service to his community was appreciated by many and he was rewarded for it by the voters
