Don't know about "Danville benefits" but I bet our dear city leaders have plenty of perks and wonderful dining experiences at taxpayer expense. At this point I really don't trust the mayor or any of the council members at all.

I'm sure this trip cost the tax payers a lot and Newell Arnerich is bummed because he likes to rub elbows with the elitists in DC. Glad San Ramon pulled the plug. We don't need more lobbyists.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
