Smoke and mirrors. Audit the damn Mayor. Produce receipts and make him address the situation to the public he so call does business for.
Control and stop the spending first. You can then always go and look at what happen in the past.
State and federal law supercede a lack of any city policy . Grand Jury Investigation, Forescic Audit and Prosecution is what is needed immediately!!!!!
In my opinion (I know . .) the commission should determine which expenditures were for city business and demand repayment for the others. The finance and procurement directors have both been negligent in their duties and should not go unpunished.
Who cares about the policy? It’s a crime to steal taxpayers money and the commission is just assisting the mayor in the coverup by emphasizing policy and dodging the real issue – theft.
I cannot understand why certain commissioners and department heads keep “covering” for his thieving ass. Unless there is more of the same that has not been brought to light.
Nothing will come of this and the mayor and the Siases of the world will keep abusing public trust regardless. Their constituents could care less. That’s the real problem in Richmond County.
Boggles the mind. Let’s give out credit cards but not have a policy? What kind of organization does that? EVER!
Where is it written laws that govern commoners also apply to the all knowing, all seeing King Hardie? A royal flush in the mayor’s office is desperately needed.
Policy or not, he knows good and well what is acceptable spending of taxpayers money. Also, not turning is receipts is like saying it’s nobody’s busness how I’m spending “their” money!
The commission has been too busy drafting unnecessary non-discrimination laws, hiring unqualified employees, and foiling each other’s power and money grabbing to be aware of existing Augusta-Richmond County codes and policies and state and federal laws. Governor Kemp should suspend Hardie Davis and dissolve the Augusta-Richmond County Commission – forget the indictments and due process. Bring in Nancy Pelosi to impeach them – twice.
Why do the commissioners and others minimize the problem?
I am going to predict that some policy will evolve from the commissioners; but, that it will “forgive” all previous unlawful spending. And then they believe that the current issues of spending will just go away. We shall see.
