DANBURY - A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE - RATED #1 CITY IN CONNECTICUT
> Best city to live: Danbury
> Population: 85,008
> Median home value: $297,600
> Poverty rate: 8.9% (lowest 25%)
> Adults with at least a bachelor’s degree: 31.3%
Located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, Danbury is one of the most expensive places in the United States. Goods and services cost an average of 30.8% more in the area than they do nationwide. Though the median household income in Danbury is nearly $13,000 higher than it is nationwide, the bigger paychecks are not enough to offset the area’s high cost of living.
Despite the high cost of living, based on a range of socioeconomic measures, Danbury is the most livable city in Connecticut and one of the most livable in the United States. Danbury boasts a higher concentration of restaurants, sports teams, and theater companies than is typical nationwide. For physically active residents, the city also has a relatively high concentration of recreation centers, golf courses, and nature parks.
HOW TO KEEP DANBURY A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE
* EDUCATION: Key for us to keep our city great. Republicans finally got the state to chip in their fair share to Danbury, which we will see in upcoming years. We support Charter Schools and excellence in education and serving the communities in need the most...unfortunately we have seen this blocked and our students become political pawns. We are running to help our children and not drive a political career
* FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY: The republicans voted for smart spending and refinancing of our high interest rate debt, which saved the city $2M and allowed us to borrow at under 1% because we received our very first AAA debt rating ever (we almost lost as the democrats voted to spend and not refinance)
* PAVING OUR ROADS: We pave 15 miles a year and will continue to work hard to fix our roads. Our infrastructure is critical to our continued success
* SAFETY: While the democrats voted to limit and defund our police, we know that the key to a great city is the safety of every citizen. We support our first responders and the safety of our citizens. We don't play politics with the safety of our residents
* IMPROVING DOWNTOWN - we have already budgeted to make Downtown an amazing place to spend time
* COMMUNITY: We just finished the new Danbury High School multi purpose stadium, serving all of the community. Completed Rogers Park for everyone, have a $99M Career Academy and so much more.
* LOW TAXES: We have and will continue to represent you in keeping our taxes low, bringing in businesses to help our economy grow and making sure Danbury remains one of the best places to live in the state
WE WORK YOU FOR YOU Danbury
Keep Our Taxes Low
While Connecticut is known for high property taxes when compared to the rest of the country, the mill rate varies greatly within the state – from 11.59 mills to 74.29 mills for the 2021 fiscal year. Danbury's mill rate is 27.6 which is lower than 72% of all the mill rates across the state. Danbury's median home value is higher than 73% of other municipalities in CT. The fiscal responsibility of the Republicans is what helps Danbury maintain the quality of life and low taxes to which we have become accustomed.
What are Mill Rates?
Mill rates are used to calculate property taxes, with each municipality in charge of setting the mill rate. This applies to both real estate (homes) and personal property (cars). The mill levy is calculated by determining how much revenue each jurisdiction will require from taxes to fund its budget for public services. Public services may include things such as public schools, maintaining parks, and continuing other jurisdiction services.
When a jurisdiction generates a figure for its required revenue, it divides the revenue by the total taxable property within an area. The rate of each jurisdiction is then added together to find the mill levy for the entire area.
How to Calculate the Property Tax
Multiply the assessment of the property by the mill rate and divide by 1,000.
For example, a property with an assessed value of $200,000 located in a municipality with a mill rate of 30 mills would have a property tax bill of $6,000 per year. ($200,000 x 30 mills) ÷ 1,000 = $6,000
Below are the Connecticut mill rates by municipality for the 2021 fiscal year, sorted highest to lowest. As you can Danbury ranks 122 of 168.

DANBURY REPUBLICAN TOWN COMMITTEE AT A GLANCE
A Distinct Identity
Welcome to the official online home of the Danbury Republicans! We are dedicated to fighting for fiscal responsibility, limited government, an environment which encourages job creation and job growth, and making sure that America remains the greatest torch for freedom in the world! Here in Danbury, led by Mayor Joseph Cavo, we have put these Republican principles into action.
Danbury Republican Town Committee knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Our Political Party Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Danbury Republican Town Committee.
Michael Safranek, Committee Chairman
