LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ian Thomas would commit to transparency

In the Fourth Ward we have a chance to have a data-driven, community-minded councilman who will look at all the elements that make Columbia a great place to live without being beholden to any special interest group.

Ian Thomas is a smart guy, with an interest in policy development, a record of producing results and a commitment to transparent dialogue. He has a big heart, too. We worked alongside Ian and his family in Honduras digging latrines a few summers ago: We witnessed a caring and competent man.

He would make a great councilman for the Fourth Ward.

Dennis and Jeanne Murphy are Columbia residents.
