  1. There is no bigger opportunist in Augusta Georgia than Hardee Davis!I think Augustans would be astounded at how much money has been paid out by the city of Augusta since Davis became mayor on his travels and other expenses.The day of reckoning is coming for him sooner than later as you can run but you can’t hide forever!

  2. The mayor has thumbed his nose at the law ever since he was elected. He routinely circumvents the procurement laws and refuses to provide receipts for his city issued credit(a violation of state law I might add) then says he didn’t know the law said that..hogwash. I hope all his dirty laundry comes out in his divorce and he gets a cell next to Sammie “floral sheets” Sias!!

  3. Positive note: When Davis is out of town, he’s not putting miles on his personal Tahoe (sans Augusta decal) and buying gas on his ARC credit card. Someone verify he did not sell the Tahoe or lease it out to a friend and pocketed the cash.
