LETTER: Christianson would make good leader for Boone County

Monday, July 19, 2010 | 7:12 p.m. CDT

It has been my great honor to serve as Boone County’s presiding commissioner. Doing so has given me a deep appreciation for Boone County’s potential.  And, I am reminded every day of the importance of being open to all points of view and treating people with respect.

I am not seeking another term, but have been closely following the race for presiding commissioner.  Scott Christianson stands out as the leader that we need for Boone County.

Scott will be a committed and energetic presiding commissioner.  He has the technological knowledge and the cooperative leadership style needed to keep us competitive in the coming decade.  Scott was born in Boone County but grew up in a small town in Wisconsin before returning to Columbia in the mid-1980s.  He knows the value of our small communities as well as Columbia.  To build Boone County’s future both must prosper.

Having seen Scott’s work with governmental boards and various organizations, I know he will listen to all concerns and make timely decisions with the best interests of Boone County in mind.  I ask you to join with me in voting for Scott Christianson on Aug. 3.

Ken Pearson is the presiding commissioner for Boone County.
