Mayor reports on state of 'Camelot'

Original post made on Mar 31, 2010

The State of the Town of Danville is good, despite the economy, reported Mayor Mike Doyle today at the annual address sponsored by the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce at Crow Canyon Country Club. "'Small town atmosphere, outstanding quality of life.' This is our motto," he began. "You've heard me describe it as Camelot, and I truly believe it."

Danville doesn't spend the money until it's available. What an unusual concept.

If only the State of California would move in that direction. It's time to clear house in Sacramento as they don't seem to be getting the message.

In my 23 years of living in this wonderful town I feel we have been blessed with terrific civic leaders who have consistently put the town's long term best interests ahead of their own. Don Ritchey, Bev Lane, Millie Greenberg, the late Mike Shemansky, Mike Doyle, Newell Arnerich, Candace, Karen and others comprising "bench strength" for years ahead. I make it a point to approach them at the Saturday market and thank them for their community service. I will never forget the celebration at the Library for Sully and the community feeling of togetherness and pride. I looked at the gleeming Library and Community Ctr and thought back to the shuttered school campus that comprised that site when I moved here. we all came together spontaneously and lo and behold CNN and FOX were there covering the event, the commentators were lauding our community. I received a call from a colleague in Denver the next day and he said "now I know all you say about Danville is true, it seems like a wonderful special place." Many of you will remember our beloved barber Geno from the Frontier Barbershop...I recall him cutting my hair one time and I asked him how he liked it here, his comment will always stick with me..."Danville has been my life's garden spot"...he was so right.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
