Casey Cagle: State must sell, consolidate assets to save money

Republican Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who is seeking re-election in November, says the state must squeeze out more efficiencies through consolidating agencies and administrative functions to deal with its budget crisis.

Cagle, who spoke to the AJC editorial board Monday, also said encouraging private investment through tax credits is crucial and that he would resist any effort to raise state revenue through tax increases. Cagle faces Democrat Carol Porter and Libertarian Dan Barber in November.  Read the full article by AJC’s Aaron Gould Sheinin.

He’ll just raise state revenue by raising fees so that his buddies in business get tax breaks. They have already started by consolidating classrooms by cutting education funding. Good work there!

Cagle is a nightmare for our state. He will do whatever it takes to help himself personally and his business friends in Hall County and couldn’t care less for everyone else in GA

What assets and agencies are those? Mr. Cagle could have told Sonny but he is sandbagging them for his campaign. List the assets and agencies; don’t just use the buzz words…to make people feel good. And what about those banks that Mr. Cagle has influence in? Are they assets or liabilities? Is Congressman Deal an asset or a liability?
