  1. When is a forensic audit going to take place? There is zero financial accountai from Hardy. As for Kendrick this seems like a preview of what his mayoral reign would be – another boondoggle for the citizens of Augusta (ie. a raise for the mayor? The went from approximately 175,000.00 to almost 500,000.00 all in). Beware of what you wish for.
    As for the trees, they need to be left in place and advice from Mr Simkins and Mr Robertson heeded.
    Never have I heard such a ludicrous idea as to cut down all those trees. I find it telling that Franton puts it on the agenda and then doesn’t show up – hmm…

  2. I remember several years ago, I met a lady who was the lead secretary under one of our past mayors..who passed away several years ago. (Since he is no longer able to Mcdefend himselfyre, I will not mention his namEd.)
    Anyway, I asked her how it was working for him? She told me that she actually didn’t work that long for him, because she quickly saw his crookedness and she wanted no part of it! She said she knew, without a doubt, that he would’ve blamed her for it all! So, she quit.
    Sound familiar?
    We all know that politicians can be self-serving at times. But Ms Mcmillan saw so many questionable activities that she felt the FBI could be calling them at any moment?? Now THAT is both appalling and egregious! The only reason I can think of that this man hasn’t been rigorously investigated yet is because he has ensnared & implicated many influential leaders in his many nefarious activities.
    Shame on the people who support Davis.

  3. Thank the Lord for Sylvia Cooper, the TRUTH MACHINE!! So much crookedness in what was once our very fine city! When will Hardie Davis be indicted! Justice moves VERY SLOWLY here in Augusta! Swift justice is in great peril here!
