Augusta has had a crime problem brewing for many years while our mayor and commissioners have been in la-la land. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees were spent by our elected officials against the X-Mart adult retail store. All that money could have bought Richmond County a lot of police protection.
We need no-nonsense, fiscally responsible commissioners who realize that public safety should be their top priority. Lori Davis has been advocating public safety for the past five years! She understands that Augusta, especially downtown, will not develop, nor will it attract industry and residents, until our crime epidemic is under control.
Lori Davis made community-based policing an issue in her mayoral campaign. Mrs. Davis has proved her leadership. I seriously doubt that community-based policing would be a current issue with the sheriff candidates had Lori Davis not been advocating it for the past five years.
Please make Richmond County better by voting for Lori Davis on July 31 for District 1 Augusta commissioner.
