Now let's save Augusta

  • Follow Letters

By all means, please, let us save the A.

While we bask in the recent decision by Georgia Regents University to add “Augusta” to its signs, let us now redirect our drive and determination toward saving Augusta.

We would be very wise to do this by expecting more of ourselves, city leaders and other high officials.

We must save Augusta by turning back the status quo and not allowing our great city to be sold out to special interests. We should preserve our community by holding people accountable for their actions that ultimately diminish the quality of life of individual neighborhoods. And we should dislodge incompetent individuals out of high places.

When we do this, we will then enjoy the true preservation of our community.

Brian Green

Augusta

A nicely worded letter.
Totally agree that "we should dislodge incompetent individuals out of high places."

Agree with your letter Mr Green…..

….the problem seems to be that, these very special interests and incompetent people in high places have had such a stranglehold on ARC for so long that the average citizen has come to view this as "normal"..

Until the citizens of ARC are willing to change the status quo by "calling out" these very people and interests…Some of whom are even now running for higher office we will continue the slide further into mediocrity that we
currently enjoy..

My advice to you Mr. Green would be to contact your Commissioner and the Mayor when you see egregious actions by public officials….Let them know when you see "crony capitalism" happening…in short: get involved..

Believe it or not ( from what I'm told ) they hear you…they just don't always want to act on it….

That makes it easier to call them out when they ignore you….they can't say they weren't warned when the populace turns them out on their "rears"...

Even a well reasoned, let's get on with Life letter gets the drones in the anti-GRU hive stirred up.
