DANBURY, CT (WFSB) -

The mayor of Danbury and some students got into a debate about the temperature at the high school and now, the state's Democratic Party is upset about the decision on heating of the building.

Mayor Mark Boughton, who is a Republican, has stated multiple times via social media that the heat will not be turned on until Halloween.

"No heat until trick or treat," Boughton tweeted Tuesday in response to a student's tweet about the temperatures at the high school.

However, on Tuesday morning the same student tweeted at Boughton where she thanked him for turning the heat back on.

Boughton previously tweeted that the heat at the high school was turned on Oct. 15, and said there was an issue in one of the classrooms.

"Little pump issue that we were working on yesterday," he tweeted.

Officials with the Connecticut Democratic Party brought "two cold chickens" to the Danbury City Hall to protest the mayor's decision on heating the high school.

"Mayor Mark Boughton has established himself as the modern day Marie Antoinette candidate in the race for governor," James Hallinan, a spokesman for the Connecticut Democratic Party, said in a statement. "Students without heat pleaded with the Mayor to get the heat turned on so they could concentrate on their studies, but Mayor Mark Boughton essentially said, 'let them eat cake.' The Connecticut Democratic Party has attached an updated head shot of Mayor Mark Boughton for this story."

However, Boughton posted a photo on Twitter of a swan, which was placed in front of City Hall to quote "chase the chickens away."
