1) Jamey Gay, 46, 141 N. 5th St., head athletic trainer and assistant athletic director at Centre College.
2) Four terms as Danville City Commissioner, three of those terms served as mayor pro-tem; director of PBK Bank; trustee of Boyle County Public Library board; chairwoman of Economic Development Partnership's Kentucky School for the Deaf task force; chairman of Community Education advisory board; Heart of Danville board; YMCA board; Danville Rotary Club; Repair Affair organizing committee; founder and coach of Dazzling Dribblers; Parks and Recreation Youth Sports coach.
3) Supports smoking ban. Opposes Sunday alcohol sales. Supports city hall expansion.
4) Priorities: Fiscal responsibility, job growth, infrastructure improvements. Storm water issues need to be addressed starting with areas that have property damage occurring, such as Jefferson, Madison, East Main and Vail Drive. This needs to be a systemwide approach and will require some hard choices related to the storm water utility fee in order to fund the projects.
1) Incumbent Terry D. Crowley, 50, 833 W. Lexington Ave., vice president of Sellers Engineering Co.
2) Third-term commissioner; Great American Brass Band Festival steering committee member and volunteer; Bluegrass Community & Technical College System advisory board; Bluegrass Area Development District development advisory committee; BIKE Boyle County member; former member of Danville Board of Education, Chamber of Commerce board and Community Development Council board.
3) Supports smoke-free ordinance; supports city facility plan; doesn't think Sunday alcohol sales are a high priority but believes it is an appropriate decision for the business owners to make.
4) Implement stormwater improvement plans. Promote growth. If we do not grow businesses and jobs, we will be forced to grow taxes. The cost of city services rises just as fast as the cost of everything else. If we elect a commission that pulls back and stops responsible planning and ceases taking action on those plans, we will be left standing and wondering why the other more progressive regions are getting the jobs and the growth.
1) William Weyman, 41, 105 McClure Drive, Apt. 21, unemployed.
2) Political supporter in mayoral races here and in New Jersey. He supports Mayor Hugh Coomer.
3) For smokers rights. Never for Sunday alcohol sales. Supports new city hall and police station.
4) Economy growth and lower taxes. Streets, curbs, sidewalks and lights.
1) James Cline, 38, 116 Onstott Drive, no occupation.
2) Kentucky Baptist Conference of the Deaf, 1989-1997; active with Kentucky School for the Deaf since 1989; Danville Deaf Baptist Mission, 1990-1997; member of Deaf Reformed Church.
3) Supports smoking ordinance but says government should not control business owners and restaurants. Against Sunday alcohol sales. Supports city hall expansion project.
4 Thinks Danville should add a swimming pool at Millennium Park; money should go to fund needs; Jacobs Hall at KSD should be preserved as part of Danville's history for people to visit.
1) Bob Griffin, 68, 626 Grabruck St., retired.
2) First run for political position. Has 45 years of management experience.Supports programs that willl bring good jobs to Danville and Boyle County. Believes city government should be transparent and accountable to residents.
3) Supports a less-restrictive smoking ban; opposes Sunday alcohol sales; opposes the city hall expansion. I would have preferred that we address the police department's needs first and the maintenance issues at city hall at a later date. Most likely both would be completed by now at a much lower cost.
4) Key issues are jobs, responsive government, public safety, accountability.
