Who are ‘Neighbors United’?

If you’ve seen their misleading ads and other materials over the years, you may wonder who “Neighbors United” are and why they support everything done by the Town Council.

Neighbors United’s two main active members are Pat Orr (who owns several Little Caesar’s Pizzas in the area) and Bill McDaniel (retired). Given Orr’s political activism, you may wonder why the Daily Press (via the Apple Valley Review) keeps him on as a columnist.

As of October 4, 2018, Neighbors United reported:
