COLUMBIA — Ian Thomas is a community-minded advocate for all that makes Columbia great.  I have watched and been impressed with his thoughtful evidence-based approach to problem-solving for years. 

I know that Ian will take his role as a City Council member seriously and put in all the time it takes to bring together the voices of all stakeholders and gain consensus on issues large and small.  While Ian has a strong vision of our community that includes a healthy and active citizenry, sustainable growth and economic stability, he is also interested in listening, learning and applying both proven and innovative strategies to the evolution of our community.
