Augusta Commissioner angry about being ‘lied’ to by mayor



One Augusta Commissioner expressed anger at Mayor Hardie Davis Jr., claiming the mayor had duped him into a vote Tuesday. 

Davis brought an item before the Augusta Commission on March 15 that would allow a company by the name of CGI Digital, located out of Rochester, N.Y. to place videos on...

  1. Man, this “preacher” is something else! I honestly wonder what the people from his church feel about his shenanigans? If I were a member, I’d be embarrassed and wanting to look back on the church’s books.

  2. That website seems to be a promote Mayor Hardie Davis site…most pics on it are of him….and vote for whomsoever I tell you….call in Dept of Justice on this one….

    “All of our voices matter. Our sweat equity is not just in the voting process but in what happens after the vote. The City of Augusta’s partnership with When We All Vote is simply the beginning. We want Augustans to register to vote and then vote but also understand what it means to be an active participant in the governmental process. This means knowing your rights, exercising your rights, and educating yourselves on the process and the issues.”

    ~ Mayor Hardie Davis, Jr.

  3. Well, perhaps a few more commissioners eill now support an audit. It is no longer “what is the mayor hiding?”; but, “what are the commissioners hiding?”
    There should be some very specific questions directed at any candidate seeking office – and votes – in Richmond County.

  4. There has to be something in it for King Hardie or it wouldn’t have even been looked at. Follow the money!! And does he think that people he names like prior mayor isn’t going to be contacted…….wow maybe he didn’t get that degree at GT. That might be worth looking into.

  5. Wherever Hardie Davis lands, be it jail or another position of greed and corruption, I hope he takes his lap dog, Sean Frantom, with him. Frantom is supposed to represent the best interests of his constituents, not aid and abet his master’s criminal activities.

    All mayoral candidates should be questioned about their intent to: 1. comply with laws and regulations, 2. end reverse racial discrimination in county hiring, 3. comply with sunshine laws, 4. use government credit cards and vehicles, 5. select staff, 6. make illegal outside contracts, 7. travel and attend conferences, and 8. abuse the office of mayor for personal gain. If they lie when responding, at least we will have the lies documented.

  6. Why is there not a grand jury seated to investigate Hardie Davis? They could subpoena his campaign, office, and personal financial records to discover where all the money went. They could subpoena witnesses, including staff and commissioners, and hear their testimony. If no criminal activity is found, they will not indict him.

    The GBI agents for the Region 7 Investigative Office (that includes Richmond Co.) are Special Agent in Charge Pat Morgan and Assistant Special Agent in Charge Sara Lue. Their contact information is (706) 595-2575, 2549 Washington Road
    Thomson, GA 30824. Perhaps ATP could give them a call and ask for comments and information on any ongoing investigation of King Hardie and his court.

  7. Not surprised on the continuation of lies and self enrichment activities from Hardy Davis and his office. Augusta has many weak commissioners in office at this moment. We the people voted in 10 commissioners too run the city government and watch over our tax dollars. Hardy Davis has run over these commissioners all a school yard bully. Citizens should vote these commissioners out of office ASAP. My family and friends will be supportive of individuals running for office that has the taxpayers best interest in mind. Not for commissioners that have cut back room deals with Hardy Davis. Praying for any six commissioners to vote for an forensic audit of the Mayor’s Office ASAP. Not the entire government at this time. I’m sure by completing a forensic audit of the Mayor’s Office will lead to others. I’m highly disappointed with many serving on the commission board and looking forward for change and strong honest leadership in the future.
