HI! My name is Lillian Faye Burnaman and I am running against Michael Caldwell (a Republican) to represent YOU and all of the other citizens of Georgia House District 20, which was revised in 2012. (See the new map here )
I am currently a retired public school teacher in Cherokee County who loves teaching, so I'm now a substitute teacher. I have lived near Lake Allatoona since 1988. My husband of over 40 years and I raised our two children here, sending them to Boston Elementary, Booth Middle, and Etowah High School. After our daughter's graduation from high school, I taught at Etowah for several years, then on to River Ridge.
Cherokee is a great county with great schools, good and decent people, and lots of wonderful natural resources for us to use and enjoy. It's not the Garden of Eden, though, and some things could be improved. I'd like your ideas, comments, and complaints. In order to grow into the 21st century, we need "to see beyond what we can see" as Dr Ben Carson's mom often told him. We need fresh ideas and people willing to work together to improve Cherokee County and Georgia.
I believe in an ethical government that fosters job creation, quality public education for all, and responsible taxation. If you feel the same way, please join me in my campaign. I need your vote, your help, and if you can afford it, your money. Please see the "Contact Me" link for more info on getting in touch with me and the "Contribute" link if you would like to support my campaign financially.
I am not a career politician - I'm a classroom teacher who thinks that if we want a better education system in all of Georgia, it would probably be a big help if people making the laws actually KNEW something about educating children! With over 30 years (and counting) of classroom experience, and being a third-generation educator, I think I am more than qualified in this area.
