  1. Judge Flanagan is fighting for his life, and Judge Brown and his daughter take advantage of his ill health and have him sign off on illegal extra payments to Dacara Brown and maybe others, just so “some people” can get reparations while others get doodle squat. When you are dishonest you should go to jail, not be paid to work to keep others out of jail.

  2. Many people feel they are compensated for a fraction of their qualifications. The remedy for such a situation is to find suitable employment that matches your qualifications. The merit system is set up to avoid such favoritism. Ms. Brown is not the victim here; the victim is the person who could be filling that position for which she feels she is overqualified. This situation is yet another example of why a complete impartial audit of all of Augusta Richmond County’s finances.

  3. “No one, no one cared about these supplements until they were coming after my dad,” Dacara said. No Ms. Brown, had people known about them before your dad got into how water, a lot of citizens would have cared. That includes the people in the same pay grade who did not receive any “retro dollars”. Augusta-Richmond County elected officials in the majority, their appointees, and recipients of their nepotism have endless supplies of arrogance, entitlement, greed, stupidity, corruption, and incompetence, and absolutely no ethics, morals, or sense of right and wrong.

  4. Things like this have been happening in Augusta for many years. Millions of dollars were misspent in the Housing and community development office 10 years ago, but again no audit was allowed. Wheeler resigned and business as usual. Did not want to see who was paid, and how much is my guess.
    Mayor is not the only hight ranking city employee to have a credit card. Perhaps that is why no audit is being done. I believe the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.
