Candidates For 4th(sans Hank), 7th Congressional Districts Appear In Debate.

From the Gwinnett Daily Post.

Woodall takes a minimalistic approach to government, while Heckman, who describes himself as a moderate, believes that government can provide some solutions.

“You have to ask yourself, how much government do I want in my life?” Heckman said. “This is a choice, in my opinion, between going forward or going back and repealing all the work we’ve accomplished the past few years.”

While Woodall wants to repeal the recent health care legislation, Heckman said portions should be changed. Woodall hopes to champion Linder’s FairTax legislation, which would repeal corporate and income taxes, while Heckman favors a less drastic tax simplification proposal.

Both agreed that the U.S. border should be sealed, but Heckman added that he wanted to offer amnesty to illegal immigrants already in the country.

In the forum, where nearly 300 students, professors and community members came out to Georgia Gwinnett College, District 4 congressional candidate Liz Carter also answered questions, although her opponent Democrat incumbent Hank Johnson did not attend.

“District 4 has not had honorable representation for some time,” Carter said. “We need people who are going to roll up their sleeves and actually get things done. … We need to move this country forward.”

    I’ve learned a lot about Woodall since the general primary. I’m genuinely impressed, as he’s a class act. While we’ve spent a lot of pixels here talking about the impact that freshmen Graves and Scott will make in DC (and I very much believe they will), don’t overlook Woodall’s potential contribution to the new majority’s dialogue. He’s right on the issues, and as a well experienced COS, knows enough about how things work to make an immediate impact.

      I have actually taken the time to read about Woodall. I agree with you 100%. He’d do a great job for us from day one. (PS, check your FB messages).

    Right on gentlemen!!! Woodall will bring his ideas to DC and fight for them. And Liz Carter will single handedly save Guam from tipping over. GO LIZ!

    Probably won’t happen:

    Woodall wants to repeal the recent health care legislation,
    Woodall hopes to champion Linder’s FairTax legislation
    Heckman added that he wanted to offer amnesty to illegal immigrants

    Lessens the credibility of Ms. Carter’s messaging:

    District 4 has not had honorable representation for some time

    Woodall is a plastic phony who has done NOTHING but be a hill employee for 16 years. No independent accomplishments of any kind.

    Heckman on the other hand, has accomplished everything he says he has. Army colonel with two tours in Iraq, a tour in Afghanistan, private sector work experience, volunteers in the community and is active in his church. He’s fiscally conservative and is exactly the person the 7th District needs in Washington.
