Vice mayor, vice president have a lot in common

Original post made on Nov 16, 2009

Some 15 million people visit Washington, D.C., each year. But leave it to Danville Vice Mayor Mike Doyle to spend some time hobnobbing with Vice President Joe Biden in a White House hallway. Cameras weren't allowed but a cell phone was used to memorialize the historic meeting for the Doyle family.

Mike, did Barach & Joe convince you to switch political parties?

Oh, please. Can't we just respect the vice president no matter what party he is from? If Mike Doyle chose to rise above the current partisanship of hatred, and treat Joe Biden with the respect due his office, and enjoy him as a person, good for him.

Just so you know is a registered user.

So the last mayor who graced Danville can use her Mayoral title to support Prop 8 and David Harmer but y'all are mad because the Vice Mayor went to dinner with the VP? What's good for the mormon (oops I mean goose) is good for the gander. Get over it.

I had lunch with the paint store guys once and it wasn't in the paper. No one cares about who the house painter eats lunch with. That's ok.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
