    • ST PATRICK’S DAY IRISH PARADE IS THE BIGGEST DRAW FOR DOWNTOWN…bringing lots of hungry and thirsty customers to downtown businesses that are now mostly restaurants….Augusta sadly needs new leadership.

  1. The city of Augusta is pathetic and it’s because the voters are fooled year after year after year. They vote self-serving, lying crooks in office. Hardly Davis is a great example. I can’t believe he promised to be at the parade 5 years abd was always a no-show! I wish this organizer would’ve announced this after the first time!!

  2. What happened to the original paperwork that was submitted. Did the person that transitioned out of the mayor’s office take the paperwork with them—kinda doubt it. Must be misplaced along with the mayor’s receipts. Also wasn’t all county employees given $800 in the early part of this year due to COVID, and that was by mistake; only first responders were supposed to have received the money.

  3. Recall how when consolidation came about that here would be five white and five black commissioners? Well, looking at the changing of the district lines it will be more like 7-3 or 6-4. Time for West Augusta, Forest Hills, and the Hill to secede and to to Columbia County along with their tax money.
    Joining North Augusta wouldn’t be bad because the folks running it appear to have their heads screwed on correctly. But, they are in SC and that wouldn’t work.
    Oh, by the way, Davis is a hack.

  4. What does it take to secede from Richmond to Columbia County? I’m in Montclair subdivision, and it would be simple to draw the new line. Will a petition do it. I’ll volunteer to hand carry one through the neighborhood.

  5. As the daughter of a WWII and Korean War veteran, this is unacceptable. My father served 20 years and risked his life to serve this country. How does this happen in a military community? Maybe we can help raise funds with a Go Fund Me campaign to pay for the parade.
