Georgia Health Sciences University President Ricardo Azziz was dishonest in not admitting to us that another criterion was that “Augusta” also would not to be considered. He also ignored a $45,500 survey by Kennesaw State University; did not disclose the full survey results to the Board of Regents; and pushed his belief that the word “Augusta” was too parochial, too local and just not cool – without any survey or scientific data to back up that claim! No up-and-coming researchers would be hired at GHSU if that was the way they made research decisions.
Yet Azziz is immune from the people and community that built these two great institutions? It seems that the doctor “doctored” the naming process; now we should get the governor and Board of Regents to “vet” Azziz!
