“Brown already hired an outside law firm” good grief, why do we need a mayor just let this guy run it all.
What is the annual compensation (salary, perks, retirement benefits, expenses, etc.) for this Lawyer? Inquiring minds want to know.
Fire Wayne Brown!This guy is nothing but trouble anywhere you look!His is inept and in way over his head and he needs to be removed!Nothing he does is in the best interests of Augustans!Enough of this stuff!
Brown needs to be fired, asap. He is a detriment to the city and taxpayers. How so many people on the city payroll keep their jobs following demonstrated incompetence is beyond the scope of human understanding. Time to clean house without the “huge” benefit packages, way past time.
Sounds like a lot of people agree about this matter.
Reminds me of the influence and power Bobby Daniel and Pete Fletcher exercised over the boards they advised.
Certainly, you are not suggesting that Bobby Daniel and Pete Fletcher were inept and in way over their heads!
I hope you also call out this guy brown, sounds like a real weasel
Typical from a partisan hack
Look who chimed in, another one of those type of lawyers… charlatan…
The charlatan is Wayne Brown, FTR…
Well bobby, comparing apples to rotten fruit or smart with good intentions to corrupt and stupid
Wayne Brown needs to go!
He needs to be told that he was not elected to be King of Richmond County by the voters. We just got rid of Hardie Davis who thought he could do anything he wanted to and get away with it and now we have another person that wants to be King. If he can’t understand this, then fire him.
Who authorized Wayne Brown to spend our money on legal consultants? The Procurement Department would mess up buying a case of bottled water, but what was their involvement? Does Brown have an ARC P-Card with no spending limit? Where is the money coming from? It is incredible that the commissioners have not terminated several involved department heads and Wayne Brown.
No, it’s high time to remove Wayne Brown…not the crown. Incompetence at it’s finest.
But Sandra, apparently Hardie did get away with doing anything he wanted. Tax payer..0. Hardie..1
“Dumbos” like Wayne Brown, cost the taxpayers too much money with his uncoordinated/very questionable actions. Is the law firm he hired friends??? Would love to hear who his patron is/was that got him this critical position. I agree totally with the many similar positions above: BROWN HAS TO BE FIRED!!
Add the dollars up from all of these “mistakes” by some of the commissioners, the boat house, the unusable stadium, this IRS fiasco, Hardy Davis’s mismanagement of funds, and other items not listed (parks & recreation funds) and it is obvious that the cost of a proper audit has been wasted. The city cannot afford to not have an audit.
He’s probably still at his job because he knows where all the secrets are hidden. He also has a knack for telling certain commissioners and a former mayor exactly what they want to hear. He should have been fired a long time ago…
Sounds like someone is getting some under the table money to me…..probably whomever is benefitting from keeping Gold Cross and paying the subsidy to them.
Incompetence is King. Long live the King!
Does he wear the big red shoes and nose to commission meetings, or only when he’s in public? Asking for a friend
Brown is just an employee and can and should be fired!He is not an elected official like he thinks he is!
Crooks in power, so augusta
