bunch of babies on here, Kevin has done a good job of streamlining city operations and has been a good Mayor through a very difficult council.

most people with brains know a college degree is not the be all, end all.

Good Luck Mr. Mayor on the next election.

In my initial statement, a colllege degree wasnt mentioned. i know lots of successful people without a degree. He hasn't been the worst mayor Columbia has had, but from reading and listening to my cousin,who lives there he doesnt represent the native Columbians and their ideas of keeping Columbia the greatest metro city to live in. The next election will show this, but those monday night meetings,. tense. No reason for that.

you need to ask your cousin (wink wink) about how tense they were about a few years ago. I'd also note it's the Mayors job to represent ALL of Columbia and vote to break any tie vote the council has, seems to me the last election told the story, maybe the OLD towns people don't like it, but he got re elected because he represented ALL of columbia and not just those from home.
thanks denny and sergei

i dont wink at my cousin, just going by what i read in paper, collect on here, and talking to people when i come through town. He ran the third party candidate which was only a ploy to spread out the votes. From the sounds of the people, think they're ready for a change. Maybe this Columbia town is ready for a good old fashioned campiagn;? get out and meet the people. It is a clean town, i'll say that.
well ummm

given the sweep against the hold all development side and the re elaction of mayor Huthinson I'd say the votes spoke quite loud. the biggest opposition to the Mayors Stance was Jay Unnerstall and he got TROUNCED.. you need to go back about 4 years and review the old council data and then compare it to the last vote.

The guy MOST of teh town wanted in got in.

well umm makes a good point. Although Unnerstall got more total votes in this election then the previous he still lost to his opponent.
COINCIDENCE I THINK NOT. Hinkler and Bergman were determined to oust the incumbent , so they orchestrated an aldermanic campaign and found a stalking horse for the mayoral race. GENEious at best or ???

So Tazer...why was it wrong when it happened to the Unnerstall bunch and right when it happened to the Aldermen the election before that?

The Unnerstall group did the very same things...only they added bald face lies and slanderous comments like "the Mayor is on the take" and "the Aldermen sleep around". Ask around. There are a lot of people that feel they were lied to during the elections.

So, when is that right? I say never and I'm dissapointed our leaders have stooped to that.
hold on

So sorry about the spelling, I got a little sloppy but the facts are the facts and you trying to make fun of my mistake won't change them.

Jay Unnerstall got beat VERY badly, clobbered would sum it up fairly well, that is a fact.
However, you could use the following terms too:
* Killed
* Trounced
* Spanked
* Blown Away
* Run Over

I think the voters did not approve of his slanted and misleading message nor did they approve of his methods in representing THEM as thier alderman. I think that sentiment was CLEARLY displayed at the voting booth.(my and i'm sure many others opinion)

by the way, do you remember the official tally?
go ahead and post it with your next response and explain it to us all.

running a real estate agency is not close to running a city, not that either one of these couldn't do it, it's just much more difficult
than what they do.

I'd like any qualified business owner (prefer 75+ employees} with about 4 year experience in city Government.

Just stay away from government workers or midlevel employees.
