COLUMBIA — I find Gary Kespohl's attack on Karl Skala's travel expenses a typical inappropriate campaign effort to divert voters' attention from the real issues. Mr. Skala has worked for the long term growth of Columbia, and traveled to learn how other cities have accomplished long-term goals. We are facing many challenges right now, and we need honest discussion about how to meet them. The debate, and campaign coverage, should be about the real issues. Karl will stay focused on the important decisions ahead of us and work hard to keep our city moving in the right direction.
