Will someone please ask Newell Arnerich, board member of Traffix bus program and Danville Town Council member (also candidate for State Assembly), how come he approved the SummerHill 69-home project for the Diablo Road area that will add 1000 car-trips per day to this congested area? We just got buses to ease the severe congestion, then he makes it worse again! How is that for wasting Traffix tax dollars! Thanks, Newell.

I will think of Newell and the rest of the Danville Town Council every time I am stuck in traffic for 10-15 minutes just coming out of Magee Ranch and waiting behind a 100+-car back-up at the stop sign at Mt. Diablo Scenic/Diablo Rd. Then I still have to stop at more backed up intersections on the way to deliver my son to Monte Vista High School!

And what happens when the Traffix tax funds dry up? Pure mayhem!
