  1. Ms. Douse seems to be doing a good job and yes, she’s an Augustan and won’t use this as a stepping stone to another out of town job like Prince Odie did. So first they have to change the requirements of the job description so that she can be technically “qualified” based on her time of service as an administrator. Hopefully that can get done so at least she can apply for the position on a permanent basis (if she wants it.) Other than that, no way does Hardie Davis or outgoing commissioners need to bring any candidate in.

  3. It appears to me that the single best qualified and politically unencumbered of the candidates for Tax Commissioner is Sanford Lloyd. As a CPA he is certainly the most qualified and his background shows him to be an excellent leader and successful businessman who has been actively engaged in his community for years. It’s rare to have such an excellent candidate for any seat in Richmond County. He has my vote.

  4. I have a comment and question for Mr Meyers: Walmart does not sell firearms any more, they succumbed to the liberal left many years ago. I know you intended for Walmart to be just an example but it’s a bad one. Are you implying that Donald Gross legally purchased a firearm? It seems you’re writing implies that he did. Let’s not mix in criminals with law abiding citizens who are responsible gun owners. I always enjoy your column.
