MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

 

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  One of 15 candidates hoping to be Georgia's next Governor made a campaign stop in Moultrie Thursday. Democrat Carl Camon is the only candidate on a July primary ballot who's from our area.

The former teacher and Ray City mayor used a bull horn on the Colquitt County Courthouse Square to get out his message of hope for Georgia. He's visited downtown squares in nearly 100 of Georgia's counties.

He says he wants to target international companies to bring jobs to Georgia and he wants to put more focus education. 

"We understand that a lot of the rural schools all around our state have not had the necessary funding they need to make things work for their students and we're going to work on that behalf as well," said Camon.

Camon wants to make it to another 50 counties before the primary July 20th and says it's important voters come out to the primary where the Gubernatorial candidate will be whittled down. 

He plans to walk neighborhoods in Columbus and Albany Friday.
