Augusta Mayor Pro Tem Alvin Mason plans to remove Willie Law from the Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority and replace him with Charles E. Harris.

The appointment is on Wednesday’s Augusta Commission meeting agenda.

According to a questionnaire attached to the agenda and Richmond County school board records, Mr. Harris, 54, is school nutrition manager working at East Augusta Middle School. His questionnaire says he has a bachelor’s degree in sociology and experience in food services, entertainment and management.

The appointment could be a short one. Under a bill being worked out by Augusta’s legislative delegation, the coliseum authority could be restructured and reduced from 12 to seven members, their terms starting July 1. Mr. Mason and the four other commissioners from his super district would pick three members, the five commissioners from the other super district would pick three members, and the legislative delegation would pick a nonvoting chairman.

Commissioner Corey Johnson has said he’ll replace Keith Brown on the authority – who, like Mr. Law, has a term expiring Tuesday – but as of Monday hasn’t put a name on Wednesday’s meeting agenda.

Does that mean the 'removed'

Does that mean the 'removed' authority members would then be eligible to be re-appointed if the coliseum authority is restructured?

brad.owens and me too: To

brad.owens and me too: To answer the question and reply to both of you, IMO we all should. The restructuring of the authority as reported earlier would remove the 'current' members and prohibit them from being reappointed. Could this be a ploy to get current members off the authority so they will be eligible to be re-appointed if the restructuring takes place?
