BobFontaineColumbia’s needs must be addressed in a future-thinking manner so that it can continue to thrive. The Columbia Association is key to furthering that goal, so I am running to serve on the CA Board of Directors/Columbia Council.

I moved into Harper’s Choice in 1988, and I’ve lived in all its neighborhoods, in a condominium, townhouse, and single family home. I’ve been a tenant and a landlord. My kids went to local schools, and my in-laws moved to Longfellow in 1968 and have lived here since. I am a member of the Harper’s Choice Village Board. l understand this community.

As an attorney in government who advises two state boards, I am familiar with large budgets and the workings of boards. I believe the CA Board of Directors/Columbia Council should provide direction, not directions, and make decisions that will foster a better Columbia for all, now and in the future.
