Savannah Morning News endorses Casey Cagle, Greg Hecht for lieutenant governor nominations
For Democratic voters, Greg Hecht.
On the Democratic side, Mr. Hecht offers the freshest ideas among the five candidates who are in the hunt for the party's nomination.The 42-year-old attorney from Jonesboro has served in both the state House and Senate, where he helped pass bills that focused on improving law enforcement and protecting crime victims and the elderly.His pro-public safety interest no doubt stems from his years as an assistant district attorney.
Mr. Hecht is the most centrist Democrat in the race, putting him in tune with many Georgia voters.He would be the party's strongest candidate against the survivor of the GOP's slugfest.
The Telegraph of Macon endorses Greg Hecht for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor
The race for the Democratic nomination for Georgia's lieutenant governor has fielded some impressive candidates.Three stand out with legislative experience:
Greg Hecht, a lawyer, has served as a state senator, state representative and an assistant district attorney.
The primary race, however, is likely to center on Hecht and Martin. ...
Hecht's platform is a multifaceted plan to improve public education.It covers incentives for teachers, restoring funding cut by the present administration, shifting emphasis to improving low-performing schools and creating programs that will encourage more parental involvement.
Hecht also pledges to stand firm against proposals he says could harm education, such as an amendment permitting tax funding of faith-based groups.This, he says, is a guise for introducing vouchers for private school use.Hecht also has a six-point transportation plan which, among other things, calls for commuter rail lines from Atlanta to Macon and Atlanta to Athens.
The voter wouldn't go wrong with either candidate, but we believe Hecht is the better of the two for the job.We endorse Greg Hecht for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.
