  1. I guess people want more of the Hardie regime of spend money with no transparency..that’s what Kendrick represents..he’s already shown you..25k walks out of his office and then he does a bait and switch with your tax dollars and you still vote for him? Hardie 2.0 coming in November..good luck voters..

  2. Lori Myles got 3.5% of the vote. That speaks volumes about Augusta’s voter vet and choose a candidate – Race, gender, personal relationship, name recognition, and the candidate’s favorite color. Don’t confuse them with facts, performance, ethics, and morals.

    • And Garnett appreciates your upcoming vote in June. As Allen Wylds stated above, Kendrick will be Hardie 2.0, and you can be certain that an audit of ARC government, will never see the light of day. It is time for a businessman to take the reins, not a politician. Take Care…

  3. Kendrick was so adamant and openly support “then candidate” Jared Williams for DA and what a lousy job he has done. Jared has blood on his hands for allowing the system to work for the criminals instead of the victims… In my opinion Kendrick helped him destroy the credibility of the DA’s office with their “soft on crime” tactics.. by vocally supporting him to be the DA.. WOW !! could you imagine ole Jared would love Kendrick in office so they can help each other finish off what’s left of Augusta judicial system..
