LETTER: Barbara Hoppe's commitment, talent should not be wasted

Barbara Hoppe is an amazing woman and the Sixth Ward is lucky to have her representing their interests on the Columbia City Council. I urge voters to re-elect Barbara on April 7.

I have known Barbara since I was 13 years old. Maybe not then, but probably a few years later, I became impressed with Barbara’s dedication to Columbia and incredible civic participation. Barbara is one of those people that makes the rest of us look like slackers; she manages to work full-time, stays up late preparing for City Council meetings, participates on local boards, supports her family and friends and has a healthy social life. Quite truly, she is a one-of-kind person. It is rare to meet someone who has the unique combination of intellect, stamina and heart that Barbara does. It would be such a waste to not re-elect Barbara and take advantage of her many qualities and commitment.
