HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton will serve as president of Connecticut’s largest organization of cities and towns.

The Republican was elected at the recent annual business meeting of the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities. He succeeds Matthew Galligan, the South Windsor town manager, who served as CCM’s president for the past 18 months.

Boughton will begin his term on Jan. 1.

He was first elected mayor in 2001. A former high school social studies teacher, Boughton previously served as a state representative. He sought the Republican endorsement for governor in 2014.

Portland First Selectman Susan S. Bransfield was elected CCM’s first vice president while Coventry Town Manager John A. Elsesser was elected second vice president.

Both Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin and Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim were elected to CCM’s board of directors.
