ColumbiaCents is a grass roots organization that provides positive, non partisan solutions to the fiscal and political challenges facing the City of Columbia and surrounding Metropolitan Area.

Tavis Micklash and DaughterTavis Micklash - Founder of ColumbiaCents

"The youth of America don't care" "Activism is dead in US"

These are quotes I've heard in repeatedly in the media.

My name is Tavis Micklash, I'm a young adult and I DO CARE. Its for this reason I founded ColumbiaCents. I felt it was my responsibility to contribute and improve the world around me.

While I am concerned with the direction of National and South Carolina politics I saw a clear need to address the hurdles affecting the City of Columbia. I also felt the efforts I organize are most effective at a local level.

My efforts are currently focused on

  • Promoting reform to make the City of Columbia and Richland County more business friendly
  •  I am also closely tracking the progress of the City of Columbia's proposed TIFs
