To encourage voting, and to support Jason Carter for governor of Georgia, Rosalynn Carter will speak at the historic Lowndes County Courthouse at 6PM tomorrow, Thursday, 9 October 2014 (facebook event).
Mrs. Carter is the former First Lady and grandmother of Jason Carter. She is a founder of the Carter Center in Atlanta, where she chairs its Mental Health Task Force. She is also chair of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI) at Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, and she is the author or co-author of several books. Plus she was involved in all of Jimmy Carter’s campaigns for governor of Georgia and for president of the United States.
Jason Carter debated his opponent for governor last night in Perry, Georgia. You can watch it online.
Jason Carter said:
“We need a leader who can say as the governor, the buck stops here.”
LCDP Chair Gretchen Quarterman took this video of the Perry crowd fired up and ready to go for Jason Carter for governor:
Jason Carter spoke in Valdosta at the Lowndes County Democratic Party BBQ July 1st 2014, where he said we should focus on higher education for prosperous people and economy, plus:
I’ll be the governor of Georgia, not just Atlanta.
Among incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal’s many scandals, Deal’s campaign took $10,000 from Spectra Energy, which wants to build the Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline through south Georgia. Deal’s campaign also accepted contributions from three other pipeline companies, adding up to at least $21,300.
Jason Carter’s campaign accepted no dollars ($0) from any of those companies. As LCDP’s Laverne Gaskins reminded us when she introduced him in Lowndes County, and as his campaign website says, State Senator Jason Carter “has twice received Environmental Leadership awards from Georgia Conservation Voters”.
The Lowndes County Democratic Party opposes that pipeline, because it brings no benefits and nothing but hazards to Georgia, plus:
Georgia Democrats believe we have a moral obligation to leave our children and grandchildren with an earth as safe, beautiful, and majestic as the one bequeathed to us by our parents and grandparents.
Former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter visted Valdosta in 2003, when they helped Habitat for Humanity build a house.
Tomorrow, Rosalynn Carter returns to Valdosta at the historic Lowndes County Courthouse to help us get out the vote for Democratic candidates, including Jason Carter for Governor of Georgia.
