Michael Meyers: Looking ahead to 2022



This week's column is going to be a forecast for the next year; what is to come for 2022, or at least what I think will happen.

I will tell you in advance there is some light humor in this column this week, but even in the midst of being funny, there is usually some truth. So, I’m hoping everyon...

  1. Why do you believe Davis hasn’t gotten a fair shake? According to what I’ve read about spending sprees with no accountability to speak of- he is riding high.
    The MBK funds that didn’t get to the intended recipients is one example.

    • Where Davis doesn’t get a fair shake is the positive things he does do for the city/county as the #1 ambassador. As a non resident, I cannot enumerate them, but as an observer I can say that he presents an intelligent and articulate persona, knows the political levers to pull at the state level, and represents Augusta well to potential industry leaders, etc. Too bad his negatives overshadow that. Footnote: As a powerless mayor, about the only thing he CAN do is represent and cut ribbons.

      • Number 1 ambassador? How quickly we forget that the Veterans Day parade was cancelled due to COVID concerns, at the same time plans were being made for a Christmas parade scheduled a few weeks away. The excuse for the cancellation of the Veterans Day was cover for the mayor’s office dropping the ball on the parade permit. What ambassador disses the most worthy heroes among the country. TAP is certainly giving the mayor the coverage he deserves.

  2. I’ve had my coffee and your Tuesday column…so the week is off to a good start. As someone who follows local/GA politics and helps moderate a FB page devoted to it…I can say 2022 is going to be easy fodder as far as stories and posts!

  3. GOD help us from the political future of KING HARDY. I am the someone named David as you went on a diatribe about Democrats and Republicans. I don’t need a lecture. You did not answer the question I asked of you. DO YOU AS A PASTOR BELIEVE IN ABORTION? I will not respond to any of your writings any more because of your beliefs. LET’S GO MAYOR is your mantra. Good Bye.

    • David again thanks for the always reading! Let me be clear to you again… ABORTION IS WRONG! You also said that black babies are killed by abortion or something to that fact… David abortion is wrong and babies of all colors are killed by abortions.

  4. I stand by my statement of you being a Hardee worshipper. Where in your column did you address his hands being all over the regency mall situation? Where in any of your columns have you called him out for the credit card use? How about the circumventing the procurement rules for city spending? How about the state laws (that he so conveniently claims he doesn’t know about as an ex state official) regarding credit card use for mayors and government employees? I’ll be waiting for those in your future columns..and I’m sure I’ll be waiting for awhile. Hopefully? His resignation will come with an indictment or two..

  5. Some of the responses to this article lead me to believe that some readers believe that if there are more “good deeds” than “criminal actions”, then the mayor is doing a good job. Now that’s funny right there. I think that it is imperative that all of the accusations against him be examined and cleared up BEFORE he is allowed yo become a candidate for a higher public office with a much larger source of public funds to misuse.
