Mayoral candidates continue to spar over SPLOST | The Augusta Chronicle

Mayoral candidates state Sen. Hardie Davis and Augusta Com­mission member Alvin Mason continued their war of words over the next round of the special purpose local option sales tax at an Augusta AMBUCS forum last week while Helen Blocker-Adams reiterated her opposition to the tax package.

“SPLOST 7 is being rammed down our throats like a hard sell – like a midnight madness sale,” she said.

LOST IN CONFABULATION: I’m not sure what candidate Lori Myles said. It takes too much effort to try to figure it out.

BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND: “In this community we tend to move with the winds of political change, and we hover around the things that seem exciting,” said Davis, no doubt impressing the civic club with his ability to turn a contrived phrase, while criticizing Mason’s absence at Mayor Deke Copen­haver’s SPLOST 7 meetings and Mason’s vote for the sales-tax package in 2009.
