Listening and learning are the top initial priorities for Columbia’s newly-elected third ward councilman.
Activist Roy Lovelady upset 12-year council incumbent Karl Skala in this month’s runoff.
“Like I said along my whole campaign trail is (that) I don’t know everything. So I’m in a position to learn the most right now,” Lovelady tells 939 the Eagle.
Mr. Lovelady’s August 13th swearing-in ceremony drew a standing-room only audience at city hall, with some residents watching the ceremony on television monitors in a nearby conference room.
Mr. Lovelady credits a team effort for his win.
