Augusta-Richmond County votes on tax commissioner

Author

Date

The Augusta-Richmond County Commission almost simultaneously voted to grant appointed Tax Commissioner Chris Johnson’s salary of $133,708, then accepted his resignation as Deputy Tax Chief and granted him six month’s severance pay at Wednesday’s meeting.

The vote was unanimous. Johnson was appointed to tax commissioner after the resignation of Steven Kendrick who is running for mayor of Augusta.

  1. Wish I had a do-over on my careers. I would have applied for a position with Augusta, and then resigned and rehired multiple times. I have 51 years of W-2s for multiple occupations and employers and I never received severance pay when I resigned, nor did any of my co-workers. This action on the part of Kendrick, Johnson, and the commissioners is criminal. How could Clarke and McKnight vote for this? They lost my respect on this one.

  2. Again! Another big crooked Augusta Commission action against the citizens of Augusta. Just how can you continue to take this time after time, some of you connected good citizens need to get the State Government involved with an audit and takeover from these crooks.
