DANBURY Conn. -- Eight-term Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, a Republican, has been elected president of the 158-member Connecticut Conference of Municipalities.

Boughton, who had previously been the group's first vice president, takes over the post in January.

He succeeds Matthew Galligan, the town manager of South Windsor, who was CCM president for the past 18 months.

CCM, the state’s largest nonpartisan organization of municipal leaders, represents towns and cities of all sizes from across the state, advocating at the state level for issues affecting local taxpayers and attempting to negotiate more cost-effective services for local communities.

The board includes new Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim and veteran Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi, both Democrats.
