LITHONIA – Today, Representative Doreen Carter announced the launch of her re-election campaign for District 93 in the Georgia House of Representatives. The new House District 93 covers part of Newton County, including Covington.
Representative Doreen Carter said:My priority is for Georgia to be the number one state to live. I am a fierce education advocate. I was instrumental in the state fully funding the Quality Basic Education formula. It is time now to update Georgia’s funding formula beyond a “basic education.” As one of the few financial experts in the legislature, I know first hand how finances are displayed by one’s priorities. Education must be the foundation of excellence for our state. You can trust that I will continue to work for Georgians to have a well rounded education.
