COLUMBIA — I’ve known Fourth Ward City Council candidate Tracy Greever-Rice since I first moved to Columbia more than 20 years ago. One of the things that’s always struck me about Tracy is her deep and abiding love for this city — plus the fact that she’s served it via so many roles, consistently devoting her time, energy and heart to making Columbia a great place to live. Thanks to her background in community development as well as her extensive track record of public service, if Tracy’s elected, she’ll hit the ground running, with Columbia’s economic well-being near the top of her list. She’s got practical solutions for encouraging local businesses to grow, supporting entrepreneurs and creating more high-wage, high-skill jobs for the people of this city. While anyone can look up the Fourth Ward candidates’ records and see that Tracy is by far the most qualified, however, those who don’t know her may not be aware that her knowledge and experience come packaged with great compassion, decency and an enormous commitment to fairness.
LETTER: Greever-Rice will hit the ground running
