1 min read

(Columbia, SC) – Columbia attorney and small business owner Tyler Bailey formally announced that he is running for Columbia City Council.  During his announcement at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown, Bailey shared with supporters that he is running for the At-Large Seat that will be vacated by Councilman Howard Duvall. 

Bailey lives in the Elmwood Park neighborhood downtown.  He has been active in the community for several years.  Earlier this month, he and members of the Elmwood Park Neighborhood Association made the news for their efforts to have an abandoned Elmwood property, which has become a neighborhood hazard, properly repaired.  And, just last week, during the Greater Columbia Community Relations Council’s Annual Business Luncheon, Bailey was named President of the 50-year-old community relations organization. 

During his announcement, Bailey said he wants to advocate for neighborhoods, tackle gun crime while supporting law enforcement, and work with diverse groups of people to continue to grow the City of Columbia.
