LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Hoppe promotes healthy transportation choices in Columbia

Thursday, March 29, 2012 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

Barbara Hoppe’s opponent, Bill Tillotson, supports the vision of a “growing network of paths, trails and multi-modal streets … which promote a more healthy lifestyle. ...” Nevertheless, when he was a Columbia Planning and Zoning Commission liaison to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission, he failed to make a single meeting in 2011, prompting them to request another liaison. We can count on Barbara Hoppe to spend the time needed to be an effective and responsive City Council member: initiating, encouraging, communicating and problem-solving for the good of Columbia.
