Do it, Deke!
Mayor once again proves his power… at least to those outside Augusta Making Georgia Trend magazine’s 100 most influential list? Cup of coffee. Knowing where the bullion is buried? Priceless. Mayor Deke Copenhaver was named in the Top 100 most influential Georgians this week. Wealthy, well-connected and “in the know,” odds are there will be lots of money lined up to hitch to his buggy once he is retired from politics. Love him or merely like him, Deke is positioned to be a leading power once out of office. Although the official website of Augusta tells a different story (Our current mayor, Deke Copenhaver, was elected in 2005 to fill the unexpired term of former Mayor Bob Young. In November 2006 he was elected to a four-year term which began on January 1, 2007, and continues through December 31, 2010), he is actually in office until 2014. A developer’s dream, he will be in high demand once off the public dole. Look for him to accomplish far more for Augusta than he ever could as mayor once in the private sector.You Might Also Like:
