Let me be clear: Councilor Courtney Gary-Allen and I do not see eye to eye on everything. Even still, I wholeheartedly endorse her reelection to the Augusta City Council. Her wealth of experience speaks for itself. Courtney embodies the essence of collaboration, a crucial quality in a council member from my perspective.

I’m wary of national politics encroaching on the cooperative spirit needed to propel our city forward. Courtney strikes the perfect equilibrium between passion, ambition, and determination in achieving results. What sets her apart, above all, is her pursuit of this role to benefit the entire community, to elevate everyone’s prospects without seeking personal gain in terms of resume or recognition.

While Courtney and I may not always see eye to eye on every issue, she listens, absorbs, and diligently labors on our behalf, driven by a genuine desire for the best outcomes for us all. Your vote for Courtney Gary-Allen for reelection to Augusta City Council will make a real difference.
