As a Cornelius commissioner, I have worked with Danae for the last two years in her capacity as a Huntersville commissioner. I have experienced her passion for representing the citizens of Huntersville and the residents of the Lake Norman region. It is rare to find an elected official who is so hardworking and dedicated to her responsibility as an elected official. More important is her open and honest approach to her responsibility. I always know that she is being straightforward in her communication and that she can be trusted to deliver on her commitments. In these times of distrust of government at all levels, this trait is of paramount importance.

Danae was instrumental in shepherding through the recent approval of the victim’s advocate position for north Mecklenburg. She has been active in negotiating a new 911 communication center agreement with Cornelius and very helpful in resolving the recent dispute with Visit Lake Norman.

Danae is committed to improving the prospects, not only of Huntersville, but the Lake Norman Region as well.  Healthy partnerships with your neighbors are critical to making this work.  I hope you will give her candidacy for Mayor serious consideration.

Town of Cornelius
