I have gotten to know Nick McGee over the last 16 months and I am very impressed with him.

He is bright, capable and has a very clear understanding of the issues we face and offers real-world solutions to solve them.

I am voting for him on Tuesday and I encourage those in our district to do the same.

His youth and vitality along with clear, common sense approach would be a welcomed change in Augusta.
