I have attended Danville Council meetings over some key issues in the past couple of years.
The ONLY incumbent that I would vote for is Renee Morgan who has not always voted with the majority of members. She is independent and actually represents us.

Establishment Arnerich has attempted to run for higher office, using his current position as a springboard, but failed. He has name recognition with all the signs but I think we have better options.

Kevin Traylor also gets my vote. I like his strong background and he would represent our community rather than himself. If I only had one vote then Kevin Traylor would get it.

My third vote would go to either Allen Timmons, who supports fighting Sacramento's Big Growth/High Density agenda OR Turner Stanton.

The other candidate are underwhelming or have strong ties to the establishment ... in my opinion.

My husband and I had the pleasure of bumping into Mr. Elsherbini the other night when we were out for dinner in Danville. We had a great chat with him and his vision for our city. He has our vote and we've put a sign in our front yard to tell our neighbors we support him.

My son Dr. Allen Timmons possess great leadership abilities, but as a first time candidate he is somewhat remiss in stating his qualifications.. He is a graduate in Industrial Engineering from Ohio University, he holds a masters degree from Oklahoma State University and a PHD from Phoenix University. He has held positions in the plastic and automobile Industries. He has founded and operated two pizza businesses (one in Oklahoma, and one in Texas). He currently owns and operates a Wire Company in San Francisco. He is a veteran who has served his country. He is the father of five daughters and five grandchildren. His wide business experience has exposed him to many issues that not only "trouble" Danville, but our country. After many years of complaining he has finally (at family urging ) decided to be a part of the solution in helping to resolve many of the issues Danville is facing.

Every once a while you come across someone genuine, honest, sincere and passionate about his friends and neighbors. He dedicates his life and time to serve the community that he is part of. Let me introduce you to one of those great guys. My husband, Nasser is a true leader with all the right characters and experiences to represent us as a new Town Council. He is sincere and has always volunteered for good causes. The things that set him apart which we need the most are integrity, transparency and excellent listening skills. I endorse Nasser for City Council and I would like for your support.

We wrote Nasser asking for his platform and ideas for Danville. He went above and beyond to setup a Zoom meeting and spent time to listen to our concerns and answer our questions. We checked his web site and found out that his message is in line with his passion for Danville. At this point, we are confident that he is ready to put his words into action and we have voted for him already. We have placed one of his signs in yard showing our support.

I am filing out my ballot today and had already chosen Kevin Traylor and Renee Morgan for my first two selections. I appreciate the additional background information about Dr. Allen Timmons. It is impressive and Timmons gets my third vote...

Looking forward to having someone with fresh insights to a make positive impact on our town. We need new leadership. Nasser is genuine, sincere and dedicated. His platform is well thought out. That is why we plan to vote for him.

Anyone who campaigns as opposed to the the Magee Preserve Development does not get my vote. It was passed by a referendum of Danville voters. Consequently, those candidates will not represent the majority of Danville voters, only their own special interests. Pay attention to the candidate statements.
