  1. Don’t vote for anyone that has hitched their wagon or defended Hardie Davis. You’ll regret it if you do. Hopefully indictments will follow Hardie out of office. By far the most corrupt politician from Augusta since Charles Walker, Robin Williams and Linda Schrenko!

  2. Perhaps they would have been able to endorse a candidate in District 2 had they responded to the invitation from our neighborhood association to our candidate forum last month. For those still deciding, there is only one candidate who seems to be truly interested in representing our district . . . go back and research who attended all the forums, answered candidate questions from the media, and has actually spoken to persons in the community.

  3. “Galeas has managed to walk a tightrope in his first term by trying to compromise between the various factions without involving himself politically in other governing bodies.” LOL!!! In other words he did nothing!

  4. Well, I’m in agreement with your list, especially for Mayor. I did my own interview with Garnett a couple of weeks ago. More than anything else, it was to catch-up — we’ve known each other for over twenty-five years. He is consistent — he told me the same things he said to you. He has great hopes and expectations for the place he calls “home”. ARC is his home to live, and his home for his business. I’ve contributed to his campaign, his sign is on my truck, and I KNOW, that if he is elected Mayor, Sylvia will never utter the words in print — “King Garnett”. Enough said.
