  1. Let’s hope this goes better than Lake Olmsted. I am wary of anything attached to Kendrick and Cardinal particularly in light of the scrapping of asphalt to avoid paying the “rain tax”. Hmmm. We will see. Not. Counting. On. This.

  2. Very interesting that this is coming out right before the runoff election for Mayor. Is this deal going to fall through if Kendrick is elected? I would not be surprised if it never happens.

  3. So McKinnon and the Cardinale family have teamed up with Kendrick now that Hardie Davis can’t deliver the deal. How much did Cardinal Management or its principles contribute to Kendrick’s campaign? If the commission grants Cardinal Management incentives, the GBI will need to enlarge the inevitable investigation to look at all commissioners who vote yes for the incentives. The deal and the timing look and smell bad. Why is Kendrick acting like an elected government official representing Augusta’s citizen? That’s River Karen’s job.

  4. Kendrick is in bed with Cardinal…same as Hardie was..this is Hardie 2.0. Be smarter with your vote. If you vote for this moron we will hear you in two years saying “wow, it’s like Hardie is still in office”..he’s showed you his hand and how he plays the game several times and people are still taking the bait…

  5. 1- Who is financing the 1200 student school?
    Will this be a Private School?
    Built with Private Money?
    2- Cardinale reserves the RIGHT to ask for Public/ Government Funding ?
    3- McKinnon is not cooperating with the Pay To Play Billboard scheme now being investigated, Really?
    4- So now Steven Kendrick is all up in the middle of the Olmsted Concert embarrassment.
    Who leased the stadium to these guys? Who signed a 10 year lease to the guys who now have the grounds completely torn up?

    Pay to Play?
    And Richmond County believes a grand jury is NOT NEEDED for these transactions?

  6. PS: Building this complex is equivalent to displaying the Hope Diamond in my armpit. Who is going to move into the apartments, visit the businesses, or send their child to the school? Will it be a gated community and will the school have a bullet stopping wall around it like Tutt Middle School? Cardinal Management has obviously forgotten why Regency Mall failed. People avoided Augusta Mall after the failure mechanism migrated there until its owners acted. Just build another prison on the site.
