Tested Conservative Leadership for Forsyth County
Forsyth County is facing 200% growth in the next 30-years, and we need a Representative who can see the bigger picture, anticipate problems and align people to get things done.
That has been Carter’s approach to leadership in business, in this community, and in his involvement in the Republican Party.
In the Georgia State House, Carter will put his experience to work to help Forsyth County imagine the possibilities, and then roll up his sleeves to deliver results.
Carter will work to get every ounce of support he can for Forsyth County schools, and he’ll work with the school board to protect parents’ rights and keep CRT out of our schools.
Carter has created jobs and opportunities in Forsyth County for more than 30 years. In the Georgia House, he’ll work to get government out of the way and to continue to make Forsyth County the best place to live, work, raise a family, and retire.
Fix Post Road traffic and safety. Period. Carter will stand his ground to produce smart, safe and aesthetically pleasing solutions for our roads and infrastructure.
Government shouldn’t force taxes, mandates, and propaganda into every facet of our lives. Carter knows that from firsthand experience as a business owner, and he’ll stand strong for limited government.
What we believe matters, and Carter will fight hard in the Georgia House to protect life from conception and defend our Constitutional rights.
