LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ian Thomas is a good fit for City Council

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 | 1:09 p.m. CDT

Ian Thomas and I have worked closely together for many years. He is a truly exceptional person and would be an equally exceptional member of the Columbia City Council.

His interests and experiences in our community are broad and deep. He greatly enjoys people and public service. He is an optimist and a person who loves life. He is a true consensus builder and someone who will put in the work to involve citizens, gain the benefit of their point of view, seek common ground and then do the work to translate the process into action.

Ian has a highly inquisitive mind and digs till he truly grasps an issue. He is fair-minded, open-minded, compassionate, creative, independent and honest as the day is long. I can hardly imagine someone better suited to serve as a member of our council.

I urge you to support Ian Thomas for the Fourth Ward.

Chip Cooper is a Columbia resident.
