Robin: About a month ago, I emailed Candace (and CC'd all of the council members) asking whether it was appropriate for her to use her title of mayor when supporting Prop 8 on that website. My point to her was that she was NEVER elected to the position of mayor. That title has simply been rotated to her this year. Prop 8 is not a city issue and as such I thought it inappropriate that she used her mayoral title on the website. Why did she feel it appropriate to needlessly drag Danville's name into a very controversial topic that is not a city issue? NOBODY from the council responded to my email. I can only assume that the council members feel it is appropriate to use their elected titles when taking positions on matters that do not relate to city government. I question whether that is a sign of somebody who has the judgement needed to lead a city. I hope the voters of Danville will keep that in mind too.
