Last night my buddy Jim Binckley attended the Village of Harper’s Choice candidates forum at Kahler Hall. He had the opportunity to query the incumbent Columbia Council representative, Cynthia Coyle about the deplorable state of the dock and piers tower in Town Center. Ms. Coyle had twice voted against any restoration funding for this centerpiece of the town. Jim wanted to know why she did that.
Apparently Ms. Coyle has everything under control. Jim told me that Ms. Coyle announced to those in attendance that she voted against restoring the existing structures because she is going to see to it that an entirely new “dock” will be built in its place.
Here’s the best part though. Jim told me that Councilperson Coyle has received assurances from GGP that they will pay for it.
How good is that!
Then I wondered how she got that assurance because I haven’t exactly heard anyone else talking about this.
Could it be that a member of the Columbia Council, acting on behalf of the Council, held a private meeting with GGP?
