Mental Health on the Campaign Trail

AUGUSTA, GA (Anibal Ibarra) - Former First Lady Jocelyn Carter spoke at the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History Thursday to near 50 people, during a campaign stop to ask voters to considere her grandson, Jason Carter, to be the next Governor. She spoke about mental health, education, jobs and other issues that put Georgia among the top 20 states in the Union when Democrats were in power more than a decade ago. 

After 14 years of Republican control Georgia is 51 in most issues in the nation, according to Ms. Carter, adding the District of Columbia to the other 50 states being in a better shape than Georgia. The wife of former President Jimmy Carter said that the policies implemented by the Republican Party in the state hurt not only the poor but the middle class also.
