Dear Mr. Assume,
Please do not paint District 8 with a broad brush saying we’re elderly or in middle school as the reason no one is running against Mr. Brandon Garrett. District 8 consists of active duty military, school teachers, county sheriff officers, civil service professionals, retirees and young families. Our young people are our future. Instead of some of them heading west on Interstate 20, I want them to stay and thrive in Augusta.
Mr. Garrett should be commended for being brave enough to run for public office and accepting the fact that the “atta boys” and “oh boys” are coming. Visit Mr. Garrett’s face book page. He works at Lamar Advertising. He may have insight on marketing Augusta beyond the home of the Masters. The “kid” as you referred to, is a young, educated man with a beautiful family. The most important impression he made to me is that he responded to my question unlike the current incumbent who never responded to my phone calls and emails over the years.
