  1. When the mayor wants to hide all his business (he’s done this since he was elected) personal or professional then it needs to be looked at even harder. He isn’t royalty..maybe he should have used my brothers keeper money to hire a man to whisper in his ear “you’re merely a man” instead of hiding all his shenanigans. Hopefully I’ll make the mention in the commission meeting…Hardie? You are the worst mayor Augusta has ever had and all your talk about transparency was just talk! I wish my aunt was still around and serving..she’d tell you what you really are…Show us the receipts!
    Calling for an audit from the commission is a even bigger joke that Hardie Davis..except it isn’t funny..where did all the SPLOST money go that was earmarked for flooding issues in Augusta?

  2. Of course the city must have a storm water program. The state shouldn’t have to mandate that municipalities have a stormwater program, or any other basic service. But, a program that is not implemented is just a piece of worthless paper and a waste of feepayer (taxpayer) dollars.

  3. The commissions refusal to commence independent audits of our government departments is no different than Hardie Davis’s desire to cover up his well deserved embarrassment that will be public info when he goes to divorce court. The court will NOT be embarrassed, Hardie will. I hope that the former, well thought of Georgia Tech “learning environment” top administrators are standing firm with their new “professor”! Time for the alumni to raise their voices in disgust and protest!

  4. Your Honor, the act of disclosing how misappropriated taxpayer money is entangled in my divorce makes it “extremely doubtful that such interest would be rooted in promoting the integrity and dignity of this Court,….” That’s a winning strategy – insult the judge handling your divorce proceedings.

    Is not Gold Cross the designated zone provider for Augusta? No mention on how that plays into the contract.. Sounds like Gold Cross is being set up to fail yet again. Maybe what the area needs are competing private ambulance services.
