Electric bond issue committee to hold speaking events as promotion

Mayor Bob McDavid’s committee to promote passing the electric bond issue needed to purchase the Columbia Energy Center from Ameren Marketing Group will be a bit more visible in the coming weeks.

The committee held a meeting Friday afternoon to discuss assignments and a tentative speaking schedule. The group will send speakers to appear on various radio shows, to newspapers and to various places including Cosmo Lunch Club and the Golden K Kiwanis Club.

At least one committee member will accompany Tad Johnson, director of Columbia Water and Light, to each of the events to promote the $49.5 million bond measure.

The next two speaking events will be at 7:30 on March 8 at the League of Women Voters meeting at the Columbia Public Library and at at 11:30 a.m. on March 9 at Regional Economic Development, Inc.

Paul Land with Plaza Commercial Realty and Mary Wilkerson with Boone County Bank were named co-chairs of the committee. Committee members who volunteer to attend the speaking events are John Conway, Jim Loveless, Tom O’Conor, Bob Hutton, Bill Costello, and Dan Rothery.
