Danville Mayor Candance Andersen says the fact she is anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, has no bearing on whether you should vote for her for Supervisor. I agree with her, as those issues will not come before her as Supervisor.
However, although I am a Republican, like Mayor Andersen, I will NOT vote for her for Supervisor, due to her absolute failure as Mayor to stop the illegal Magee Ranch development in Danville. As Mayor, and as a long time city council member, she has the authority, the clout, the bullypulpit, and influence, to stop this illegal development. However, she has done nothing to stop this illegal development, and in fact is forcing local residents to hire an expensive attorney to sue the Town(where she is Mayor)to force the court to enforce the law that requires an election for approval to change the zoning to allow this huge development.
This Magee Ranch illegal development, will make an already horrible commute, near Green Valley Elementary School, Los Cerros Middle School, and Monte Vista High, and Diablo, that much worse, not to mention what the grading will do to the environment and beautiful setting. This is why we have laws, that require a vote of citizens, to allow this development. She claims to be an experienced attorney, but yet she seems to have little respect for the laws that require a vote. If the citizens vote for this development, so be it. But follow the laws, and use your position as Mayor, to make sure that the laws are enforced.
If you have children that attend Green Valley Elementary School, Los Cerros Middle school, or Monte Vista High, do NOT vote for Mayor Candance Andersen for Supervisor, as her failure to stop this illegal development will greatly increase the traffic around these schools, and cause safety concerns.
