The name of the merged Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University is not the primary issue. The real issue is the undermining of the democratic process.
GHSU President Ricardo Azziz acted as if he had chosen this process for the naming of the university. He got an entire community involved in the process. When he chose to ignore the outcome of the very process he instituted, he became untrustworthy.
For him to have done this in an election year is abominable. The Board of Regents and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal should use the process he chose to decide the name. We deserve to know that our votes count.
