If the smart people of Danville do anything right this November they will throw out the two lackey incumbents...Councilwoman Karen Stepper and the current super lackey Mayor Robert Storer..

If this does not happen...the naive folks of Danville deserve what comes next.

Thank you for listening even though I am from another community.

Julia Pardini from Alamo... Every morning I keep thanking the sane folks in Alamo for not voting Alamo into a Township. Good lucky in November you Danville folks...Remember people only YOU can make a change...Vote Smart and vote Incumbents OUT. Thanks again for listening, Julia Pardini
