Southside Mafia Still Strong?
Word has it that Freddie Sanders entering the race hurts Robbie Silas much more than Scott Pebbles. All that Peebles can hope for at this point is a strong second place in the primary and head into the runoff with Richard Roundtree. By the general election in November many think Sanders will have faded, and if Pebbles is still standing he will win. Former Mayor Larry Sconyers throwing his support to Sanders is a blow to Silas; however, it remains to be seen how strong Southside Mafia is today. There is a clear, very loud, very open ABR (Anyone but Roundtree) initiative in Augusta political and business circles, so look for the fan to be covered soon. Will the attacks on Rountree help or hurt him? Will the age of both Peebles and Sanders be viewed favorably or negatively? Will John Ivey receive more votes than his current T-Mobile Friends and Family plan? Remains to be seen. But we in media are happy. The Parking Deck/Magnolia Trace/Fred Russell chapter is finally coming to an end. It’s going to be fun to have new arguments and controversies to dissect.You Might Also Like:
