I feel exceptionally lucky to be raising my family in such a deep-rooted, creatively vibrant community. In my service on Town Council, I’m committed to making sure as many people and families as possible can share in that community. I hope to bring a wide range of our neighbors’ voices into town decision making and to work together to build a town that truly reflects our shared values.

Both graduates of UNC-Chapel Hill, Danny and his wife Sallie have lived in Carrboro since 2016, where they’re now raising their two kids.
