I do not think Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree and Richmond County Solicitor-General Kellie Kenner-McIntyre should have gotten raises. They knew what the salaries were when they wanted the offices. If the salary was good enough for a man with Strength’s years of experience, it should be good enough for them.
Now that they have their raises, I think we should have a big wave of the “blue flu.” Do our police officers get that kind of raise? I think not. They are out there each day putting their lives on the line. They chose to do this. If anyone needs a raise it is them, and our teachers.
I feel that is a race-based consideration on the Augusta commissioners’ part.
