COLUMBIA — With Ian Thomas as a candidate, the Fourth Ward has the opportunity to elect a forward-looking, highly knowledgeable and consensus-building community member to City Council who will act for the better of all Columbia residents and will make decisions based on research and facts, not ideology.

Misleading attacks notwithstanding, we can think of no one better than Ian Thomas to represent the Fourth Ward. His local, national and international experience is our best bet that Columbia will develop in a smart way and into a city that is safer, more livable and enjoyable for all Columbians.

Walter and Allie Gassmann are Columbia residents.
