We all want to improve the QUALITY OF OUR LIVES IN OUR COMMUNITY. Your ideas and policy directives may help us do that. If you have ever thought, ‘I wish we could have…or, if only we changed this, our Village would be better…” then we want you on the Harper’s Choice Village Board! It does take patience, coordination and compliance with our Village Bylaws; but real change can happen. We think Harper’s Choice is already the finest Village in Columbia, but we can’t rest on our laurels. Let’s make it better together!
The current two-year terms of office for two Village Board seats and the Columbia Association Council Representative seat expire on April 30, 2020. Village Board members attend one meeting a month where they oversee village finances, advise and take action on such matters as street and house maintenance, and advocate for changes that will benefit Harper’s Choice. The Columbia Association Council Representative serves on the Village Board as an ex officio (non-voting) member and also serves as a voting member of the Columbia Association’s Board of Directors.
The nomination period runs from March 1 – March 14, 2020. Information and nomination petitions are available at Kahler Hall and for download HERE; a maximum 150-word CANDIDATE’S STATEMENT is due at Kahler Hall by 5:00 pm on March 14. The STATEMENTS may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably in a MS Word document. For more information, contact Village Manager Steve Ingley at 410-730-0770 or via email.
