State of Georgia
A successful entrepreneur and respected former State Senator, Casey Cagle made history in 2006 by becoming the first Republican ever elected to Georgia’s second highest office. In November of 2010, Lieutenant Governor Cagle was re-elected to office for another term.
A talented athlete, Casey graduated from Johnson High School and attended Gainesville College and Georgia Southern University. When a sports injury ended his dreams of playing college football, Casey returned home to Hall County to start his first business venture – a small tuxedo shop. He later grew to be a leader in the banking and real estate industry in northeast Georgia.
In 1994, at twenty-eight years old, the people of Hall County chose Casey to be their representative in the Georgia State Senate. Casey faithfully served in the Senate for twelve years until his ascension to the Office of Lieutenant Governor in 2006. As a State Senator and later as Lieutenant Governor, Casey established himself as a bold leader and champion of conservative values. His business acumen propelled him to prominent leadership roles and assignments under the Gold Dome, enabling him to balance Georgia’s budget without raising taxes.
As Lieutenant Governor, Casey instituted the Charter System Initiative, whereby entire school systems can now convert to charter system status and focus their efforts on educating students instead of complying with burdensome mandates. Additionally, he launched the Georgia College and Career Academy Network, a partnership between local community leaders, school systems, and Georgia’s technical colleges. Thanks to his leadership, Georgia has 23 college and career academies today with additional academies planned every year.
In 2010, Casey launched the Lieutenant Governor’s Healthy Kids Challenge, with the goal of enrolling 50 Georgia schools in the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program within one year. After achieving this initial goal in less than 3 months, the Lt. Governor is now working to provide every Georgia student with access to an environment that encourages healthy lifestyle decisions.
Casey is frequently honored for his efforts on behalf of the people of Georgia. Recently, James Magazine named Casey one of the most influential Georgians. He was one of only four public servants nationwide to receive the 2007 Champion for Charters Award and has been repeatedly recognized by various national and state groups for his support of small businesses. Casey also serves as Vice Chairman of the One Georgia Authority, as Vice Chairman of the Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission, and as a member of the Executive Committee of the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association. He has also been named a member of the Aspen-Rodell Fellowship for Public Leadership.
Notwithstanding his many accomplishments in private and public life, Casey is most proud to be a husband and a father. He has been married to Nita, his high school sweetheart, for 25 years and they are the proud parents of three sons- Jared, Grant, and Carter.
