LETTER: Candidates' response to PedNet matters

Monday, March 29, 2010 | 7:58 p.m. CDT; updated 3:10 p.m. CDT, Wednesday, March 31, 2010

COLUMBIA - Mayoral, City Council and Columbia School Board candidates were given the opportunity to respond to four questions concerning their views on PedNet’s vision of a network of trails and multimodal streets enabling and encouraging Columbians to use healthy modes of transportation. The responses, or lack thereof, provide unique insights to their character.

The fact that McDavid and Kespohl did not bother to respond lacks respect for the civic efforts of PedNet, whose issues repeatedly come before council. Responses from Sid Sullivan, Jerry Wade, Tracy Greever-Rice and Karl Skala were particularly knowledgeable, insightful and in line with PedNet transportation and recreation issues.

I encourage voters to visit PedNet, read and consider responses of candidates to important issues concerning our community and the qualities that we enjoy and admire about Columbia. Then, vote April 6 for candidates you truly believe will provide the respectful energy, knowledge and insightful passion we need in Columbia.
