LETTER: Sarah Read would be an outstanding representative

Wednesday, March 10, 2010 | 12:07 p.m. CST; updated 1:02 p.m. CDT, Friday, March 26, 2010

I support the candidacy of Sarah Read for the Fourth Ward City Council position.

I have known Sarah through her leadership with the Columbia Chapter of Parents for Public Schools and through other volunteer work in the community. She possesses a unique combination of attributes that will make her an outstanding representative for the fourth ward. Her professional background and training will allow her to immediately comprehend the various city ordinances, regulations, resolutions and reports that define much of the council’s work. She will hit the ground running. Her willingness to listen to all points of view and reconcile differences will be a tremendous asset to the working of the council. Her in-depth knowledge of energy matters, perhaps the most significant issue facing Columbia, will be an invaluable benefit for the city in these difficult economic times.
