The two candidates for the Harper's Choice seat on the Columbia Council -- who ran against each other two years ago -- got their first chance last night to make their campaign pitch to the public.
Tom Forno, the incumbent, presented his candidacy as a call for the Columbia Association to "shift gears" and become a more "mature" organization. Although he did not present his bid as a defense of Deborah O. McCarty, he did support the embattled CA president.
