Dear Geoff and Editor,

When having direct access by e-mail to each council member does not work and appointments for neighborhood groups do not mature, how does social media improve community engagement, communications and interaction on neighborhoods' issues. Example: Explain how this will solve the traffic impact of Magee and Weber Ranch approvals, please.

Do you expect impacted county communities as Alamo, Diablo and Blackhawk to use social media for interaction with Danville's government?

Joyous wishes at Thanksgiving

To the previous poster......don't over think this. Being on Facebook is just a way for the people to keep up with the town happenings. (Town programs, projects and events of interest to the public.)

It will not will solve the traffic impact of Magee and Weber Ranch approvals and this article doesn't even come close to claiming it will.

Chill out and take the facebook account for what it is...something fun.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
