Mayor Fails To Produce Resume Purchased Using Taxpayer Funds



The Augusta city check register shows a $500 charge in December 2020 to Mayor Hardie Davis' government-issued credit card, but city records show no evidence that a resume, or any other document, was actually produced.

In response to a Georgia Open Records Law request seeking a copy of the resume...

  1. Receipts or repay! Hardee is supposed to be a preacher? Obviously with no moral compass other than I’m getting mine…I can see why only a few commissioners want a forensic audit.there would be some criminal charges if the light was shins on the backdoor workings of August Givernment.

  2. Card transactions at Lowe’s and Sherwin Williams – did he repaint his office (or home’s living room) without help from his minions? Davis makes Sias look like an amateur when it comes to theft, deception, and obstruction. It’s despicable that the commission and department heads aided and abetted Davis or looked the other way while he spent our money like a narcissistic drunken sailor (apologies to the U.S. Navy). Where are the GBI and GA Department of Justice when you really need them?

  3. A credit card with 15k spending limit is just asking for it! The non-receipt expenditures should be added to a 1099 MISC and given to Mr Hardy as unreported income. The My Brothers Keeper account should be audited. Take away all credit cards. Reimburse legit receipts.

  4. After reading all of this the mayor needs to be forced to make full restitution to the city for all of this needless spending.No receipts and nothing to back any of it up.Davis is so arrogant and thinks he can do whatever he pleases as far as spending taxpayer’s money.The time has come when enough is enough.It’s hard to imagine this guy as a preacher as you have to question the judgement of someone like this.He has no political future as we are all on to him and the resume was most likely for him when he leaves office.I would not hire him period for anything as he is lacking integrity as evidenced by all of the shenanigans.

  5. All of these credit card charges clearly show the Mayor is using the city issued credit card for his own personal use. He should be claiming this money on his income tax as income earned each year . WHERE are his income tax returns for each year he has been in office? Has he claimed all the money spent for personal use for income ? And yet the Commissioners that also have their hands in the cookie jar says ” There’s nothing to see here, we need no Forescic Audit”. Wheres the FBI,GBI,IRS. We need someone outside of Augusta to step in , everyone here is all looking out for each other’s back.
