Candidates running for Columbia City Council faced questions in a forum hosted Thursday by the Columbia Board of Realtors.
Three candidates took part in the forum. In Ward 2, incumbent Michael Trapp is seeking a third term but will face opposition from Paul Love. Council member Betsy Peters is running unopposed in Ward 6.
A point of contention was when Love said Trapp had a conflict of interest in developments in the city based on the business Trapp owns.
“That is one of the prime reasons I am running. I am not a huge fan of crony-councilmen,” Love said.
