Hi Married With Two Boys readers!
My name is Kate. I’m a teacher, journalist, and, just like Sojourner, a mother of two boys. My husband is Jason Carter, candidate for Governor here in Georgia. This Monday, with my boys by my side, I cast my ballot for Jason on the first day of early voting.
As a mom, it’s important to me that my boys get a good education. And as a teacher, I’m concerned about the size of our classes, teacher retention, and the ability of my students to attend and afford college once they graduate.
This year I’ve traveled throughout the state talking with parents and teachers and they share the same concerns with me. You better believe that I’ve shared these concerns with Jason over my six years of teaching and I know he’s heard them over and over again while on the campaign trail.
The chance to make my voice heard in an election never gets old, and voting for Jason for Governor was particularly gratifying. He is courageous, incredibly smart and respected on both sides of the aisle down at the state Capitol where he serves as a State Senator.
Jason has a vision of Georgia at its very best—not competing for last in education and unemployment.
I hope you’ll make some time to read about Jason’s vision for a better future for our state. And I hope you’ll visit the polls before they close on Election Day to make your voice heard. It’s a great opportunity to teach your kids about democracy and the power of the vote.
Thanks to Sojourner for letting me guest post today! I’d love to hear your thoughts — keep in touch on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
