Real leaders won't step up

  • Follow Letters

To the residents of Augusta and Richmond County: I am truly sorry that your merged schools – Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University – ended up with such a dud name – “Georgia Regents University.”

You have a mayor, a city administrator and enough commissioners to confound anything. Sadly, you have no leaders – zero, nada.

If the presumptive leader of your merged schools – current GHSU President Ricardo Azziz – was from Augusta, and had more character, the new school wouldn’t be Georgia Regents University.

But that’s what you get for not loving, in Azziz’s words, “cool.”

Previously arranged?

The only reason that I can imagine why our leaders (?) have not attempted to weigh in on this situation is because they had meetings earlier and were convinced to not weigh in on this situation when the time came. They are actually silently representing the side that they elected before the mess hit the fan.

Butterbean you are right

Even the circus has a script. While the leaders of ARC may at times seem inept (LOL LOL), there is a purpose to the madness. Some of the clowns are just followers and not leaders, but all participate to make the show a success.

The purpose of any governing body is the control and increase its influence and power. And the more power garnered, the more money is available.

I think they have been told

I think they have been told "get on board or the ship will sail somewhere else".

Leadership?

Did we really expect to see the mayor and other officials in Augusta to display leadership? Is there any evidence to ever support that expectation?
And, don't expect to see anything resembling leadership coming from them.

Sad

The lack of fire in the bellies of our mayor, commissioners, state representatives, and state senators is shameful regarding this hideous name chosen for our state university.
