As a long time Danville resident I have seen a change in our Town council from one that served the community to one that serves themselves. The only current member that I would vote for is Renee Morgan who has shown some independence from the "group think". It is definitely time for the other incombents, including Newell Arnerich, to move on.
Kevin Traylor would be a welcome member who I would trust with serving our community.
I also like Allen Timmons who has a much more impressive background than is given in this coverage of candidates.
Stanton sounds like he could be a good choice but I would prefer someone with just a little more life experience than a twenty something. I could seeing voting for him to replace an incumbent in one of our future elections.
This is just my opinion about the candidates but at least I am not some anonymous staff members...
