Two more candidates for local office filed qualifying paperwork Tuesday in the Richmond County Board of Elections office.

Mayoral candidate Charles Cummings filed and paid the $1,950 fee Tuesday, according to Board of Elections Executive Director Lynn Bailey. Cummings is a south Augusta businessman.

Also qualifying was Sammie Sias for the Augusta Commission District 4 seat, Bailey said. Sias is a retired Army sergeant major and a neighborhood activist.

Qualifying Tuesday for the District 2 seat on the Richmond County Board of Education was James Swanagan. Swanagan is a member of the clergy who has worked as a school bus driver.

The three hopefuls join 16 others who made their intentions official Monday for the mayor’s seat, five commission posts, five school board posts and two judgeships.

Qualifying for the local nonpartisan races continues through noon Friday.

Waiting for a late announcement in the Commissioner race.

It will get real interesting if a certain person decides to run who is backed by the Good Old Boy political group backing him.

Wayne needs a competitor

Looks like Wayne is the one backed by the good-ole-boys. Did you see the crowd at his reelection rally?

I have to laugh when Wayne's
Unpublished

I have to laugh when Wayne's supporters try to portray him as the anti-establishment candidate. How can anyone who has Grady Smith by his side while campaigning claim to be anti-establishment and not part of the good-ole-boy network? Thanks for my chuckle for the day.
