Residents of the Sixth Ward know who Barbara Hoppe is. She does her homework, asks thoughtful questions at Columbia City Council meetings and has a track record of excellent constituent service. What we know about Bill Tillotson is that the Chamber of Commerce supports him. He is one of the good old boys in Columbia. He will go along to get along with the big developers in town who have historically gotten their way.
