A Call to Service
As stated in this article in the Columbia Flier, the nomination period for the Columbia elections is currently underway in some Villages and soon to start in others. I believe that all the races should be competitive. All CA Board positions should have at least two people running for each spot. In the Village Board elections, there should be more people running then there are positions available; no matter if it is 2, 3, or 5 positions. Competitive races, an open debate and dialog is sorely needed in all of our communities. So please, get involved. Sign out a petition, talk to your neighbors, and represent your community.
