"What sets Danville apart from other towns, is the sense of hope embodied by the people and the forward thinking of the leadership. Danville could easily follow the path so many communities with similar challenges have taken. We could throw up our hands or twiddle our thumbs and wait for relief from the larger surrounding cities. But, that's not Danville! I’m honestly proud to represent this community when I travel. We’ve managed to strike this beautiful balance between big city amenities and small town hospitality. I just love it here!"
