The Richmond County Board of Commissioners needs to be sued in Augusta Federal Court for failure to represent the public in a fiduciary manner. Gridlock has retarded progress in Augusta for years.
A jury of their peers should try them separately and severally. The ones who have contributed to the woes of Augusta or future growth should be removed from office. One does not have to prove that they did it intentionally, but that they are incompetent for the responsibility and scope of their position. Augusta should consider stricter qualifications for the positions. I was a resident of Augusta for 11 years, and my family has managed billions of assets over the last 35 years as CPAs.
