LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ian Thomas will bring passion to Council as Fourth Ward councilman

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 | 11:59 a.m. CDT

I urge each Fourth Ward voter to cast his or her vote for Ian Thomas. Ian is an exceptional individual who will bring intelligence, compassion and a passion for Columbia to the Columbia City Council.

Ian is extremely intelligent (Ph.D in physics) and brings a refreshing willingness to listen to and consider opposing views. Columbia needs people like Ian who have the ability to critically analyze issues and develop well-thought-out positions.

I have known Ian for several years, and while we do not always agree on every issue, he has always been willing to consider my arguments. Our elected representatives are there to make informed and intelligent decisions for us and our community. Let's elect a man who certainly can and will do so.

John Riddick is a Columbia resident.
