On Friday, Democratic Mayoral candidate Helena Abrantes launched a new radio ad entitled "Danbury can do better" that receiving a great deal of positive feedback from those I talked to at the Taste of Danbury who heard the ad on WLAD.

Running on the theme of improving the quality of life in the area, in the ad, Abrantes outlines a number of her goal if elected mayor, which includes getting a handle on irresponsible development, addressing traffic concerns including road improvements, reduce rising water and sewer rates while controlling property taxes, and investing more manpower to the police force.
