Columbia needs Paul Sturtz on City Council as a representative of the entire First Ward. He will not be a rubber stamp on the council. Sturtz has said that the First Ward includes MU, Stephens College, Columbia College, major bank offices, The District, much of Columbia’s population who are below/above poverty (children and elderly) and many residences both owned and rented. It is also the most racially diverse ward. Sturtz, with David Wilson, founded Ragtag Cinemacafe and True/False Festival, which sold 18,000 tickets this year.
