On behalf of the Columbia Chamber, thank you for your support and participation in the Strong Mayor campaign. The city residents have spoken and the current form of government remains unchanged. We still believe the “strong mayor” system was and is a good choice for our city. As a business community, we will continue to work with the Mayor, City Manager and City Council to improve current systems and address critical issues such as public safety, hiring of a new police chief, homelessness, economic growth, job creation and quality of life. We remain committed to our vision for Columbia and will stay the course in working to move Columbia forward from good to great. Together, we can achieve our vision.
– Holt Chetwood | Chair, Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce
