Michael Fedele introduced Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton as his running mate for the GOP gubernatorial nomination.He promised to use Boughton as an equal partner in governing. “Mark and I have the courage to make those tough decisions and that are right for Connecticut and it’s people,” he said. “Over the last 20 years, personal income in our state has doubled while government expense has tripled. Government has far out-paced our taxxopayers’ ability to pay for it.”
