Williams requests city administrator's hard drive

May 2, 2007

AUGUSTA, Ga.---Augusta Commissioner Marion Williams is requesting to see the hard drive of city administrator Fred Russell's work computer, along with those of three other city employees.

Williams made the request to the city's IT director. He says he doesn't need full Commission approval to make that request.

Things got heated yesterday when the Commission voted to reprimand Calvin Holland for requesting to see Russell's hard drive.

    I feel that someone needs to go back to the basics and take a look at the policies regarding this move. Hopefully this will explain what can be done with or without commissioners approval. I feel that those sitting on the commission have the right to know what is being done on company time if they want to. Someone needs to be held accountable. Our biggest problem today is accountability.

    The real issue is that some folks can get away with anything, and Holland is tired of it, not the best way to address this but there are some double standarda downtown

    Augusta will continue to be the child of racism. Commisioners like Holland and Williams as well as commentators like Austin Rhodes will continue to drag us down into race baiting and hegemony. It is hard to believe that such folk are elected to office and claim to be acting for the people. News to you all... we have had enough! I have had enough and will do all I can to force a recall of those that continue to embrass the great city of Augusta.

    Augusta has their own "Jerry Springer" show but it's listed as "Commisioner's Meeting!" on Tuesday lineups.

    When will the people in Marion Williams district get it through their heads that they keep electing a man that could care less about them and their concerns. He and Mr. Holland have the same agenda - What can I do for myself and my small group of followers that will help us? When are people going to wake up and say to themselves I can't believe I pay these clowns to use my tax dollars for their personal agenda. Stop feeding these babies. Let them cry and whine on their own dollar.

    Here we go again, Marion Williams is pushing this hard drive issue to see how far they will tolerate him doing the same thing Holland did. Why not have all computers, blackberrys, cell phone records, gas usage, etc., checked for personal use on all city/county employees, including the commissioners.

    Methinks, then everyone should look at everyone else's computer. Fair is fair. Where is King Solomon when you need him?

    It's obvious that this is a personal issue with Hollands. He is not doing it "for the people". I have had it with the commision. Put the Mayor in charge of our city because the commisioners are a joke. TO THE POINT OF DOWN RIGHT EMBARRESSING!!!!

    should williams get russell's hard drive then all commissioners should give up their blackberrys to be checked for personal use, bet you they will find more personal use on the blackberrys than on russell hard drive
