Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle visits VSU

VSU College Republicans presented Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Magnolia Room (A) of the University Center. Cagle is the incumbent candidate for the 2010 race.
There will be Albany and Tallahassee news stations attending the event as well as the Valdosta Daily Times.  Also, invited guests include the Lowndes County GOP, the Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce, VSU students, faculty, and staff, and all interested Valdosta/Lowndes County residents.
According to VSU College Republicans Chairman Donavan Head, Cagle will be providing an update on his campaign, and the organization is hoping to have at least 30 to 40 people attend.
“We have been trying to get him to come for a while, and he is combining two events in that he will be meeting Mayor John J. Fretti of Valdosta for a luncheon,” said Head.
According to Ryan Cassin, the campaign manager for the Cagle Campaign, Cagle is visiting VSU to meet friends and supporters and discuss updates on the campaign and the legislative session that will become effective Jan. 2010.
Cagle’s primary focuses will be on cutting wasteful government spending and creating jobs across the state. Other issues include transportation, education, healthcare, and economic development.
“We do a lot of traveling around the state working with different people, and we try to get to the Valdosta area as much as we can,” Cassin said. “I’m sure the event will [have] a great turnout.”
Cagle stated his stance on government spending, as seen on his official website. “It has been my firm belief that government cannot be all things to all people and that the government should only do for citizens what citizens cannot do for themselves.  We must create a culture of fiscally-responsible spending with sound conservative principles to be the good stewards of taxpayer dollars Georgians deserve and expect from their elected leaders,” Cagle said.
As Georgia’s 11th Lieutenant Governor, Cagle says it is his goal to make Georgia a state where every single citizen, regardless of their current circumstances, can achieve the American Dream. He says he is committed to creating an environment in which Georgia’s citizens and businesses can prosper.
Likewise, Cagle says he is tirelessly working to create a pro-job culture throughout state government, and an education system that focuses on the needs of the individual child. Cagle will unite the Senate around the common goal of realizing that vision and making life better for all Georgians.
Cagle is running against State Senator Eric Johnson and State Senator David Shafer for the Republican candidacy.
The event is open for all to attend.
