On Tuesday night, the New City Alliance hosted a cocktail party at the Tomato Palace restaurant in Columbia Town Center. The advocacy group wanted to rally it’s supporters for one final push as the council prepares to vote on the Town Center redevelopment enabling legislation, CB58 and CB59 this coming Monday night.
It was a very impressive turnout. 140 people signed in at the front door and they represented a broad cross section of Columbians, young, old, male and female. It was also heartening to see more than a few politicos among the attendees such as Ed Priola seen in the picture above and soon to be announced candidate for county executive, Trent Kittleman.
Curiously, the current county executive, Ken Ulman, was not in attendance.
