Don Bormann waits outside a residence in the neighborhood of El Chaparral off of East Broadway to distribute brochures about his concerns and platforms for his campaign for Boone County Northern District Commissioner. Bormann said his door-to-door canvassing is important to the voters because they need all the information on the candidates, and every time he meets someone new to Columbia, it makes all the difference to him that they know who they’re voting for. | Bobby Watson
