So I just came back from a very disappointing, saddening CA Board of Directors meeting. Starring a rookie CA Board member from Harpers Choice who dominated the conversation as if he'd been on the board for 10 years. And Russ Swatek loving the apparent 5-5 split on the board, which is going to be painful for the entire year.
We have to become better than this stuff. We have to think dynamically. And that's the third and final major tenet of what Columbia is about. Columbia is about progress.
We believe that Columbia was founded as an incubator for progressive social thought. We believe in continuing to fulfill that promise.
We believe that Columbia should champion and enact policies that stand as examples of the best civic thought in America.
We believe that Columbia should an energetic, beautiful, exciting place for residents and visitors to enjoy. Columbia should be on the forefront of recreation and entertainment types of all kinds, appealing to a wide variety of diverse tastes.
We believe that Columbia should be a destination of choice for people in this region in terms of looking for a place to live, work, shop, and recreate.
And we believe that everyone in Columbia, and who holds a stake in Columbia, should be treated with the utmost respect, decency, and civility.
Friday is Lost Sock Memorial Day.
Let's be careful out there.
