Mayor should be decent

The Augusta mayoral race is not a reality show. Augusta voters must remember they are electing a government leader, not a buffoonish, reality-show celebrity.

That is why a mayoral candidate who has the scent of domestic violence and was featured on the front page of the Jail Report should not be given serious consideration. A mayor with such a dubious distinction would diminish Augusta and be an easy target for local and national ridicule.

Augusta is a respectable city and home of the Masters Tournament, a world-class golf event. Therefore, Augusta deserves a mayor of equal respectability and class. Be wise with your vote.
