With Battle Lines Drawn, Commons Signature Drive Kicks Off in Columbus

Photo:

Even before the Commons, Columbus’ downtown mall and gathering place, was torn down more than a year ago, plans to build its successor were in motion. But a city plan to borrow nine million dollars to build the structure was halted earlier this year by a remonstrance. That forced a petition drive, which started last weekend. In the first part of a two-part series, WFIU’s Daniel Robison tags along with the pro-Commons bunch as they try to out-petition the competition.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
