Interesting that the article does not mention the Danville Mayor's name. This is fine with me since his name is not worth mentioning.

(This oversight will undoubtedly be corrected in a future article - too bad.)

Editor's Note: This oversight has been corrected.

Good job not listing the Danville Mayor's name. After his votes on the K&B development and the Summer Hill development he deserves to be removed from office not elected to a higher one. If he was to be elected to the State Assembly it would just be a larger number of people he would disappoint with his votes. We won't forget his decision to side with developers instead of the citizens of Danville. Don't reward his actions !!!

Best of success to Catherine Baker. California politics needs a change. Our virtual "one-party'" system has not served us well.
