'Coach' is ready to tackle politics



This is on behalf of Calvin "Coach" Holland Sr., candidate for Augusta Commission District 5.

I became acquainted with Mr. Holland 34 years ago. During the decades I have known him, he has proven on many occasions to be a leader and a positive role model in the community. One need look no further than his outstanding career as an administrator, counselor, teacher and coach in Richmond County. Mr. Holland is a very effective communicator, and is sensitive to the needs of people. He possesses the leadership skills to bring people together to enhance the quality of life in his district and in Richmond County, regardless of race or socioeconomic background. Mr. Holland has a genuine passion to accomplish this mission.

Mr. Holland is the right man for this job. He has proven himself to be an effective public servant for so many years and in so many different capacities. As the District 5 commissioner, he will work together with the mayor and his fellow commissioners to ensure that Augusta is a progressive and viable city in the 21st century.
