(Augusta,GA) Augusta’s mayor is in line for a new car, but not the one his office requested.
Mayor Pro-Tem Grady Smith has purchased a toy car that he plans to give to Mayor Davis before the meeting next week.
Commissioners did not support the Mayor’s request for a new SUV for his office and that created tension So Smith says he’s trying to lighten the mood.
“I’m doing this in a sense of humor to say hey let’s all work together and maybe we can work our way up from this car to the bigger car at least that way he can wrap it up and give it to somebody for Christmas,” said Mayor Pro-Tem Grady Smith.
Smith bough the silver toy car because the mayor’s office requested a silver Ford Explorer.
Smith hopes the toy car will put a smile on everyone’s face so the mayor and the commission can get back on track.
The mayor challenged commissioners to give up their free city gas cards after he withdrew the request for the new vehicle
