There are four candidates for Mayor of Danville. Monday was the last day to file petitions for mayor, city treasurer, or city council. The Mayoral candidates are Rickey Williams Jr., Donald Crews, Steve Nichols and James McMahon.
McMahon is a former city council member and former Vermilion County Board chairman. Williams is the current Acting Mayor, Crews works in the Danville Public Works Department, and Nichols is the Ward 6 Alderman

Sharon Pickering and Damar Jones in Ward 3
Michael O’Kane who is unopposed in Ward 4
