McBerry hopes to be Georgia's next Governor

By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A McDonough man brought his campaign for Governor to Albany Tuesday night.

Republican candidate Ray McBerry spoke to about two dozen people at Doublegate Country Club. He says his platform is putting Georgia first.

He's for strengthening state rights and replacing income and property taxes with a state sales tax.

"And I will commit to you that I will be the Governor who will stand up for you liberties against whatever tax may come, whether they come from the Middle East or Washington, D.C. I will stand for your liberties against tyranny no matter from where those threats come," said McBerry to the audience.  

Six other Republicans and five Democrats are also running for Governor. Those primaries will be held next July.
