Truth be told, my name on that ballot has more to do with you, my readers, than anything else. Thank you for your loyalty and interest in Kelsey’s Grammar. I cannot tell you how much I truly appreciate it. Thus, if you like me, my blog, or simply if you live in Columbia, please take a few moments to share your support and vote for me at the Inside Columbia website.
