Helen Blocker-Adams, in my opinion, is the most qualified person who is vying for the mayoral position in Augusta. She has a proven track record that includes being a business-oriented person, which gives her all the tools she will need to move Augusta forward.
I had the pleasure to meet Ms. Blocker-Adams and to be a guest on her radio program. She can and will communicate at every level that the mayor’s office requires. State Sen. Hardie Davis is giving up a voting position in the Georgia General Assembly to run for mayor. It seems to me that he is primarily seeking a local position of status, and he will perhaps be just a figurehead in the mayor’s office.
I spoke to mayoral candidate Alvin Mason, and we discussed a plan to move Augusta forward. But I feel that since he was not the one to initiate the idea, he is just sitting on it. So I formed the conclusion that he, too, is just seeking a position of status, and his track record on the Augusta Commission is less than good.
I just believe and know that when you see, and have knowledge of, a person of Ms. Blocker-Adams’ abilities, you let it be known, and those of you who know me know that I am a lifelong resident of Richmond County for more than 80 years, who served in the U.S. Army for 21years and retired since 1971.
So please vote for Ms. Blocker-Adams for mayor. You will be glad you did. God bless our city and America.
