Thursday was a very scary night for Danbury Mayor, Mark Boughton, but the story has a happy ending.

When Mayor Boughton collapsed at a meet-and-greet in Avon on Thursday evening, many thought it might be connected to the brain surgery he underwent in August of 2017. Many who witnessed the collapse thought it looked like some kind of seizure. But this what the Mayor told the NewsTimes:

I talked with the surgical team in Pittsburgh and they said it had nothing to do with the brain tumor.

Doctors at the University of Connecticut Medical Center explained to the media that Mayor Boughton was treated for dehydration. The Mayor was out in public on Saturday afternoon for the raising of the Irish flag at City Hall.

Mayor Mark is in his third run for governor. He also told the NewsTimes that this would not slow him down in the least. What do you think? Could this be the end of the Mayor's run for the governorship? I certainly hope not.
