  1. You have a lot of support in Summerville too. We will be proud to call you Mayor Johnson. From what I have heard you are a self-made man and a proud person that will not let us down. You are perfect for this position in every way. I know Tuesday will be the start of a grand day for you and for Augusta!

  2. Humility is the greatest rallying point for all successful leaders. Hopefully, our elected commissioners will open their hearts and minds to your leadership and offer you opportunities to build a better community. Good luck, Mr. Johnson.

  3. Looking Forward! That you will be out next mayor !! You and your family have made great progress in your professional career that has brought income to the city as taxand business license payers.. And If the Augusta has any chance of getting back we need someone with a know how and fighting spirit to get it done.. Your opponent someone who’s been under HD wings and his direction.. Alot of people feel that it’ll will be the same ole “nod-wink” mentality that is there now …. GO Brother !! Get IT Done !!!

  4. I don’t have a vote in RC, but if I did it would be a solid, unequivocal vote for Mr. Johnson. I have a better impression of him than I have for any politician running in RC in many years.

  5. Garnett — I’m sorry that I missed a chance to visit with you again last Friday. We’ve been friends for way too many years, but I’m thankful for every one of them. Even though Lyn and I are out of town, rest assured that I will be glued to my laptop screen tomorrow night. I wish you all the luck in the World, in your quest to make ARC a better place. I will be honored to help you in any way that I can. May the citizens of Augusta Richmond County see the will in your heart, to make life better for all. Let’s get this thing done. Good Luck, Sir !! Rip
