Cagle campaigns across southwest Georgia

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Lt. Governor Casey Cagle campaigned in southwest Georgia Friday with stops in Albany and Americus.

He talked with local representatives and supporters at Doublegate Country Club. Cagle said while job creation is the number one concern he hears from voters, education is a close second. More than 40 cents of every dollar that comes to the state is put toward Kindergarten through 12 education. Cagle says the state needs to maintain that funding without putting more burden on taxpayers.

"As we move forward we've got to continue to make sure that K-12 education is our highest priority because that's our future and we've got to invest in our future and those are the children that we care so much about," said Lt. Governor Casey Cagle (R)-Georgia.

Cagle started the Lt. Governor's Excellence in Innovation Award to highlight small businesses surviving in a difficult economy. 

Friday he honored George Bryce of Star Racing in Americus. Star specializes in parts for older drag bikes and late model sport bikes. Cagle faces Democrat Carol Porter and Libertarian Dan Barber in November.
