Gunnels focusing on people, not politics in at-large race
“For me, it’s people over politics,” Gunnels said. “When I made the decision to run it had less to do with my opponent or the seat and more to do with the timing of the situation and the fact I’m running for the people. We’ve got to have a race, and I’ve got to run against someone, but I’m not running because of the person in the position. I’m running for the people in this city and I’m running for Columbia, not politics in the at-large race.”

Columbia Council Candidates Tackle Job Growth, Five Points, Social Issues at Chamber Forum
“We’ve had job growth and population growth across the state, but we lost jobs in Columbia last year,” Gunnels said. “That’s statistical. We can’t fluff that, it’s statistical. We have to address this as an actual issue, and we have to look at it with the facts and we have to bring the experts to the table to address it.”
