Gubernatorial candidate visits Albany

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Former congressman Nathan Deal was in town Thursday to campaign for his race for Governor. Deal spoke to people at the Shackelford house on Dawson Road.

His main goal is to reform education by implementing technology and new methods in Georgia schools. One example includes moving away from text books to iPads and Kindles.

He also wants to focus on cutting wasteful spending at the federal level.

"I believe we need to restore more local control to our local school districts and even down to the local schools themselves," said Deal. "We are having too much bureaucracy at the federal and the state level."

Deal also promises to turn to renewable energy sources, reform immigration laws and bring more jobs to Georgia.
