As a resident of Coweta County, I am excited to support Casey Cagle for governor in the July 24 run-off election.

Casey has worked tirelessly to lead our state alongside Gov. Deal, and he is the proven, conservative leader that Republicans can trust to deliver on his promises.

I’ve been able to visit with Casey multiple times in Coweta. He is an honest and genuine person, and his leadership has advanced Georgia significantly. He’s led with Gov. Deal to grow 700,000 jobs and they cut our income taxes by $5.7 billion dollars. Additionally, he started the College and Career Academy network, which boasts 98 percent graduation rates and allows students to graduate high school with high-paying job offers.

I know all of us in Coweta County have a great respect for our service men and women, and I am very excited about Casey’s plan to compensate our veterans by eliminating all taxes on their retirement benefits. Additionally, he’s been a strong supporter of our local law enforcement heroes and has earned the endorsement of 100-plus Sheriffs.

He’s endorsed by the NRA, the Independent Christian Athletic Association, over 500 locally elected officials, and has earned the support of the Georgia Realtors.

I’m with Casey on July 24. Join me in voting for the conservative who is prepared to lead our state into another decade of prosperity.
