For next month's discussion, Morgan will be joined by assistant special agent in charge for FBI San Francisco Sid Patel, senior inspector for Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office Dave Mathers and Danville's chief technology officer Clancy Priest, to discuss the dangers of digital fraud and how residents can avoid getting scammed.

"Mayor Renee Morgan will be discussing the increasingly sophisticated threat of digital fraud and how to protect yourself from becoming a victim," town staff said. "The discussion will also include what to look out for, and most importantly how you can protect yourself and vulnerable friends and family from becoming victims of fraud."

Held on the first Friday of each month via Zoom, "Town Talks" provides residents the opportunity to virtually connect with their mayor and discuss some pressing issues facing the community.

Interested residents can ask questions during the talk using Zoom's chat feature or by emailing questions to [email protected] prior to the start of the program.
