  1. While I respect everyone’s right to have an opinion, I don’t believe the public should be listening to local Attorney’s about splitting the circuit. Adam King like so many other local Attorney’s live in 1/3 of a million dollar and up homes in COLUMBIA county where their children get a better education than those in Richmond county. Many like Adam even have an office in Columbia county where they receive better Sheriff’s protection and less crime. And as he mentioned we have a very diverse population that is not almost all poor as Burke County is or loaded with crime and big gangs like Richmond County finds itself Today. Plus we don’t have a majority voting population that puts in liberal District Attorney’s that will go very soft on crime. We don’t need to be partially run by Augustans, we don’t need their circuit, we won’t need their Hospitals once we win that battle, and we are developing our own shopping, and industry. That is why most all citizens in Columbia County support splitting from Richmond County, so get over local lawyers, or move on to Atlanta where liberals really excel.
