Put Davis on commission

  • Follow Letters

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.

July 31

I don't think there is a commission race on July 31, 2012 the last time I looked.

If public safety and

If public safety and community policing is her main agenda, then she is running for the wrong office.

Community policing is just

Community policing is just one facet of Mrs. Davis campaign. Go to electloridavis.com to see all that she stands for. She has very specific goals. Also, it takes the Commissioners to vote to give the money to properly fund public safety. They have yet to do it.

If you want to be represented

Vote for Mrs. Davis. She fights for the people, all the people in Augusta. She will not allow our tax dollars to be miss-spent. Go hear her speak at the commission meeting this week if you want to see her in action and to hear what she stands for because she stands for us unlike many elected officials we currently have in office.
