  1. This article should be considered a campaign contribution in kind of some sort. Wow what a great way to boost your endorsed candidate for mayor. If he is so great he should get out of government and go to work as one of those $200.00 an hour for consultants. It is time for him to go. What a way to skim over the 25K loss of the tax payers money. Safe left open, security guard didn’t notice, no cameras were on that day.

  2. I have read this article three times and the interviewees’ responses are so perfect that ( if I did not know better ) I might conclude that the responses were scripted.
    “Prior to Kendrick’s election as Tax Commissioner in 2009 the
    office was known as one of the least efficient Departments
    in city government, and its reputation for customer service
    wasn’t much better .”
    I did not know that . I paid taxes on multiple properties over the years through Jerry Saul’s office.
    But prior to his (Kendrick’s ) election in 2009 “the office was one of the least efficient Departments in City government”
    And Kendrick is an honorable man , so it must be true .
    And “it’s reputation for customer service wasn’t much better”
    And Kendrick is an honorable man , so it must be true .

    “I told them they didn’t have to pay me , but they insisted .”
    And Kendrick is an honorable man , so it must be true .

    If I remember correctly after Mr. Kendrick resigned as Tax Commissioner , his Deputy was elevated to Tax Commissioner at the same salary that Mr. Kendrick had been paid ( and the new Tax Commissioner was paid roughly $55,000.00 as a “severance gift” by the Augusta Commissioners) .
    Note : That Severance Gift of approximately $55,000.00 has never been adequately explained by the August Press .I am assuming that it has not been adequately explained because nobody at the Augusta Press understands it .
    Again —- if I remember correctly , the NEW Tax Commissioner ( now receiving a higher salary together with his $55,000.00 “SEVERANCE GIFT”)
    hired the old Tax Commissioner , Mr. Kendrick , as his DEPUTY Tax Commissioner . And , when this was publicized in the media Mr . Kendrick stated that he would decline the salary ( for how long , I do not recall that being reported ) , but he was going to keep the benefits ( medical coverage and ??? I don’t know what else ).
    So – now that Mr. Kendrick has accepted his new $40.00 per hour position with the Boys and Girls Club – How will his time be divided between the Tax Commissioner office , the Boys and Girls Club , and the political campaign ?
    That would have been an appropriate question to be covered in the Augusta Press article .
