Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are pleased to announced that Newell is running for re-election to the Danville Town Council, with the fast approaching November 3 election date, we wanted you to be the first to know he is launching a re-election campaign.
Over the past years he has helped guide Danville through three economic down turns and re-built much of Old Town Danville, that had vacancy rates of nearly 40% in 1995 and lacked Town investment. Prior to the recent pandemic, Danville was experiencing its best years financially as one of the most cost-effective cities and the safest community in California, year over year. This did not happen by chance, it was carefully planned.He will continue his deep commitment to maintaining Danville’s ‘small town atmosphere and outstanding quality of life’ while preserving our 43% permanent open-space.
The pandemic is affecting all of us personally, including local businesses and Town government. No one is untouched by the totality of these recent events.  The combined health and economic crises have created significant challenges. More than ever we need experienced leadership to carefully deal with recovery on multiple fronts.
He is confident that our future looks bright and a carefully guided safe return to economic and health prosperity lies ahead. Our mission in local governance is based on Community Policing, Parks, Planning and Public Works. He has helped guide Danville with no debt, no post-retirement obligations, no unfunded liabilities and the most cost-effective community in the area - based on strong “pay-as-you-go” fiscal policies. His personal goal is to be a selfless leader who dedicates whatever time is necessary to keep Danville as the safest community in California.
It takes a lot of work to run for election and the assistance of many friends and supporters.We would greatly appreciate your endorsement and your support, please visit our website to contribute to the campaign!  
He is honored to have served as Mayor of Danville six terms and will be honored to have your support and vote on November 3rd for his re-election!
