COLUMBIA — I strongly support Jerry Wade for the next mayor of Columbia. Jerry has more experience in city government than all of the other candidates combined. He is a current member of Columbia City Council, former chair of the Planning and Zoning Commission, and has been a resident of Columbia most of his adult life. He has demonstrated his ability to be both a listener and an advocate for the citizens of Columbia. He has consistently listened to citizen groups and members of the council, learned from these conversations, studied the relevant information and made informed decisions based on all of the above. While he has an impressive background in public service, he is also focused on the future. Jerry has some goals in mind to help Columbia city government address the many challenges and opportunities for the present and the future. Please vote for Jerry Wade for mayor of Columbia.

Bonnie Bourne is a Columbia resident.
