  1. Many of us would like to know about the video company in Atlanta who received 4500.00 for work that they and the city cannot produce receipts for??The company said in a statement that the only work they have done in Augusta for an unnamed church?Does that sound fishy to anyone else?What Church does Hardee Davis attend?And it’s also odd no one from that company will return calls or answer any questions?This needs to be fully investigated and answers provided.There is something very wrong here and most of you can already figure out what’s going on here.I will be so glad when Augusta has a new mayor and get back to responsibility and accountability.
