Wow! Danville has ONE PROJECT for just $1 million!!! Have you checked out what San Ramon is getting?
San Ramon, according to Stimulus Watch, is receiving $48,578,300 for nine (9) projects.
So where is Danville? I thought the Mayor was last seen glad-handing Captain Sully! We have more than one municipal need! If we don't have houses bing built and projects being planned for NON-RECEIPT of Federal funds, why do we need so many staff wandering around with a cup of coffee in their hands all day??
Check out that website and see what other tiny towns are getting. Sounds like San Ramon had many "shovel-ready" projects as well as great staff over there to provide the necessary staff work & support to make sure San Ramon is not left out. Unfortunately, Danville snoozed during this process!
Are you impressed with the leadership in Danville?

Good for San Ramon! And I'm glad to hear that Danville is at least getting something from the stimulus package. Until Alamo incorporates, it has no standing to seek a penny of Federal funding. Our only hope is that our step-mother, Supervisor Piepho, will seek her fair share and then grant us some mercy. Since we only comprise 5% of her district, it doesn't look promising.

What a rip off - we have management fees stringing from Washington to Danville. PORK is very expensive money.
There is no such thing as a free lunch
