Editorial: Re-elect Stepper, Storer to Danville Town Council

Two Danville Town Council seats are up for election, with incumbents Karen Stepper and Robert Storer facing first-time candidate Ram Namburi.

In a community that embraces no term limits, Danville residents seem to value vision, continuity, experience and understanding from their council members.

Storer and Stepper embody those positive attributes, and more.

A 16-year council member also with prior San Ramon Valley school board service under her belt, Stepper remains focused on community planning, improving the downtown (for businesses and patrons), easing traffic concerns, enhancing town parks and smart budgeting. She is also a presence in and for Danville, from representing the town on regional governing boards to leading historical walks to still coaching Mustangs soccer after 35-plus years.

Storer has served on the council for nine years after a successful run on the Planning Commission. An integral part of what makes Danville (as he put it) the best run community in Contra Costa County, he has demonstrated an ability to support efforts by the town government centered on his priorities of public safety, improving downtown, maintaining a strong budget with healthy reserves, protecting hillsides and smart development.

Namburi is a Danville resident who says he wants to make sure the council is listening to the voices of the people, especially on issues of housing developments, downtown, traffic and cell towers. While we applaud Namburi for trying to get more involved with his hometown, he simply lacks the civic experience and depth of knowledge needed of a council member. We urge him to seek a spot on a town commission or committee, and begin effecting change that way.

Vote Stepper and Storer.

Both are great as are the rest of the council members.

Best run town in CA would be an accurate statement.

Voters should check out the 10/11/18 "E B Times" where Danville is listed as the safest town in CA as even more evidence. Rest my case.

Ram and only Ram. The other voted against us, and now we will vote against them.
