Kandiss Taylor, an Appling County candidate for governor, visited Reidsville on Friday morning at 9:15 a.m. in the Boneyard parking lot and finished in Glennville at the Rusty Pig in the afternoon on a short tour through South Georgia that also included Metter and Statesboro.
She has been touring Georgia in previous weeks as an outsider Republican candidate which includes four other candidates. In addition to Governor Bryan Kemp, she is competing against David Perdue, Catherine Davis, and Tom Williams.
She arrived Friday morning in a large white bus featuring a bold photo image on the side with her slogan “Jesus, Guns, Babies on the side. On the top rear quarterdeck was a sign stating, “I’m the one you’ve been waiting for!” which rounded out the political advertisements.
Ms. Taylor states, “I am Georgia-grown and have real life experience that is invaluable. I serve Georgia children every single day. I want to use the wisdom and skill I have developed over the past two decades to serve all Georgians. Join me in the fight to return Georgia back to the people. Let’s elect someone who is just like you and will make decisions you want, and let’s rid Georgia of corrupt politicians.”
Taylor’s academic record includes a Bachelor’s degree in 2003, a Master’s in 2005, and a Specialist in 2006 from Georgia Southern University. She obtained a PHD from Regent University in 2014. She has spent 18 years in public education as a teacher, counselor, and coordinator.
Her reason for running is as follows. “I can’t complain if I’m not willing to do something about it. I want change for the better. It’s time for the common man to be represented in government.”
