Happy Holidays Everybody!
My Family feels I do way too much public carping for which I do not apologize. They have asked me to be more positive this coming year.
Near impossible with so many schemers about. On a positive note I’d like to state I believe Columbia contains mostly wonderful people. However I like warning these citizens about some of the big stinkers walking around with smiles on their faces and a hidden agenda on their mind, especially some of our politicians and public administrators.
I like complimenting people who like to serve not rule. One of these wonderful people is Third Ward Council person Gary Kespohl. Thank you Third Ward voters. Another council person I spoke with referred to Mr. Kespohl as a “bean counter.” I took that as a wonderful compliment. Mr. Kespohl and our new Mayor want to run Columbia as an efficient business. They want to give the citizens their hard earned tax moneys worth. What a pleasant change.
I challenge the citizens of Ward One and Five to find council candidates of the quality of Mr. Kespohl and elect them. Thanks for allowing me practice being a little positive.
Professor Ines Segert is a great example of MU professionalism and community involvement. Her friends and colleagues should support her run for a second term on the Columbia Public School Board.
