What Residents are Saying
"Council member Renee Morgan continues to bring creative questions and views to Danville's Decisions for the past 8 years. She has been immersed in senior issues with her mother, veterans with her son-in law and student issues with a high school son. A vote for Renee is a vote for experience in the midst of issues that Danville has not faced before this Pandemic and beyond."
Fellow Council member/Current Mayor Karen Stepper
"As Danville’s Mayor and Council member, Renee has brought knowledge, dedication and energy to our community. I support her re-election."
East Bay Regional Park District Director/Former Danville Council member/Mayor Beverly Lane
Danvile/San Ramon Express Endorses Morgan
"Danville is well-managed, with a balanced budget and no unfunded liability, and a lot of the credit goes toward its current leadership."
"Care must be taken, though, to maintain this envious position in the face of a global pandemic, economic downturn, struggling small businesses and a state government that demands building affordable housing. Danville needs leaders who know what they are doing now more than ever, which is why we are endorsing incumbent Renee Morgan"
"Morgan, a thoughtful council member with solid civic experience, also deserves another term. She served on the Danville Planning Commission, Danville Historic Design Review Committee and Danville Heritage Resource Commission prior to her election to the council eight years ago. Among other accomplishments during her time on these committees, Morgan helped update two General Plans for the town. She is also a strong advocate for regional cooperation, serving on a variety of regional committees and commissions."
