Car purchase stiffs county

Like everyone else, Richmond County car dealers are having a hard time. Our Augusta Commission and fleet management people decided to make times even harder by purchasing 30 new sheriff’s office vehicles from an out-of-county dealer. That means no profit for our dealers and, worse, no taxes for our county.

Vehicles, services and all other items for county use should be procured in Richmond County. That’s called taking care of your own.
