I have known Helen Anthony for several years as a result of her work on the Planning and Zoning Commission. She is thoughtful and objective.
Helen’s passion for planning is a match for mine. She took the lead as a representative of the Planning and Zoning Commission working with those of us from the Comprehensive Plan Task Force on goals and objectives for a proposed comprehensive plan for the city of Columbia. She is clear about her positions on issues regarding growth and development while at the same time being open to new or different ideas.
Columbia needs people on the City Council who do not exclusively represent the interests of the builder/developer community. I strongly encourage voters in the city of Columbia to consider Helen Anthony for Fifth Ward representative.
