Commissioners see room to improve

To bring in the new year, The Augusta Chronicle asked Augusta Commission members to grade their performance in five critical areas: image, taxes, revitalization, management and efficiency.


Using grades of A through F, six of the 10 members offered responses: Matt Aitken, Joe Bowles, Jerry Brigham, Wayne Guilfoyle, Joe Jackson and Grady Smith.

They gave few high marks, with the area of efficiency receiving no higher than a C from any of the six.

Mayor Deke Copenhaver and Com­mis­sioners J.R. Hatney, Corey Johnson and Alvin Mason did not participate.
