LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Columbia residents should be thankful for Hoppe

Thursday, March 15, 2012 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

Columbia residents should be grateful to have such a hardworking, thoughtful and conscientious person to serve on the City Council as Barbara Hoppe. She is just the kind of advocate Columbia needs as we grow. Many cities in the country have suffered as a result of growth without foresight. Barbara has been a careful advocate of neighborhoods and individual rights while at the same time realizing that healthy businesses are at the heart of our success.
