As a resident of Harper's Choice for 33 years, I am excited about the opportunity to have Alan Klein serve as our representative to the Columbia Council.
Alan and I have worked together in the field of leadership and organizational change and for many years. I know him to be an independent thinker with insight and intelligence who always strives to treat others with respect.
Alan has the kind of mind that enables him to grasp very complex, systemic issues, the kind of issues facing the Council as it grapples with decisions about Symphony Woods, open government and ensuring that lien payers receive real value for the fees we all pay.
He consistently applies his skills in bringing people of divergent views together to come to a result that serves the common good. This trait will serve us well in bringing Jim Rouse's new town of Columbia into the future.
We are privileged to live in Columbia with its values of inclusion, transparency and openness. Alan will help us keep it that way.
