  1. The Roundtree episode reminds me of the old TV sit-com “CAR 54 WHERE ARE YOU?” … this whole video thing could turn Augusta leadership shenanigans into a late night sit-com starring: Hardie Davis as Mayor Dipstick; Odie Donald as Old Mac Ministrator; Richard Rountree as Buford T. Justice, The Sheriff without a gun; and Petula Burk as Pansy of Florida….more later.

  2. Where is law enforcement regarding these illegal charge card accounts?? Who applied for these illegal accounts? Why were they illegally paid off? Who was illegally using the cards, and for what purpose? Who else had an illegal card they were using? The commission basically co-signed the reckless behavior by pushing through a card policy. The more prudent action would have been to not push through a policy, and let those who behave illegally be prosecuted.

  3. It’s bad enough we have a mayor with an overly
    high opinion of himself, but we have a commission with a majority that will rubber stamp anything him and his accomplice administrator want without question

  4. The only thing Davis is sorry for is that he didn’t get to charge 140,000 before someone found out. He is the biggest joke for a mayor Augusta has ever had. A preacher that lies without even thinking about it..what a crook..typical for the politics in Augusta…
