Columbia’s families deserve a City Council that works for us – not just corporate developers who rig the rules to boost their profits.
As voters, we’re coming together to demand our city leaders look out for our neighbors instead of real estate speculators, corporate developers, and out-of-state corporations.
We need leaders who will look out for the schools where our kids learn, the roads we drive on, the buses we take to work, and safe places to call home are available to all of us.
We deserve city leaders who put the needs of our families and neighborhoods first.
Add your name to join our work, pledge to vote for candidates who hold your values, and hold our leaders accountable to our communities.
By signing this pledge, these candidates commit to ensuring these community issues are priorities as elected officials.
Missouri Jobs with Justice Voter Action members invited Columbia Ward 1 candidates, Pat Fowler and Nick Knoth, and Ward 5 candidates, Gregg Bush and Don Waterman, to a Community Town Hall on Saturday, February 25th. We asked the candidates questions, heard candidates’ plans to address community issues, and asked each candidate to sign on to the Neighborhood Pledge.
Attendees Nick Knoth and Gregg Bush were asked about their plans for protecting our public utilities from privatization, standing with local workers fighting to unionize, funding public safety, improving public transportation, and increasing affordable housing for our Columbia neighbors. Both candidates in attendance signed the pledge.
