  1. The district map looks like drawn by kindergartener who could only scribble. Almost seems like another effort to dilute Augusta voters of a certain ilk. Mayor Davis continues to lobby for a new position as a lobbyist with his connections to Middle East & the Holland Knight firm….and we taxpayers have to pay for his lobbying…maybe his honor will relocate his offices to Qatar. I am in full agreeance with Sylvia Cooper’s writing.

    Wonder why this huge Contribution to Casey Cagle’s 2018 run for governor – Cagle was beaten by Kemp:
    A & M Amusement
    112 Commercial Court Augusta, GA 30907-2656
    11/17/2017 Monetary Primary
    2018 $5,000.00

  2. The commission missed civics classes. They do not understand that the Legislature does redistricting not the commission and school board both of whom made a split recommendation to the Legislature.

    Commission Marion does not have the money to run for Mayor, so he expects the media to keep his name in the public eye.

  3. Hardie should be under investigation by a grand jury. He continues to thumb his nose at the law and wastes tax payer money defending open records laws. He is the epitome of a career politician with loyalty only to his pockets..

  4. Be aware that if the District map ends up in Court you could very well end up with a map that is much worse than the map you have now. D3 Summerville folks potientially moving into D2 should find someone to run in D2 and financially support them or you may end up with one of the announced people as your Commissioner.
