  1. You got to realize, if you are happy about some packing up and leaving, then you are like so many of the Richmond County voters, you aren’t paying the bills. The Commissioners could care less because they will only tax (excuse me) fee those left to death. The Richmond County government is dysfunctional. It has been through both white dominated/black dominated control. Their remedy is to ignore the problem; hire consultants to do the job that should be done by the various department heads; play the race card. If that fails do the old Columbia County got problems too and it is being hid. Apparently, you can live with a lot more than misspelling someone’s name. Tearing down monuments and changing names of roads and bridges won’t change a thing. It will only continue to focus on the political magician’ s left hand while the right hand does the trickery.
