I currently have a bill proposal ready for review called GAVC. This bill will add 2,300 new law officers to the state. This bill will put officers in schools, at school functions and other venues.

Carwile is the third Republican to announce for the District 42 seat.

In February, Doug Gilliam announced his candidacy, and in March Phillip Russell announced his.

The District 42 seat is held by Rep. Mike Anthony, a Democrat, who announced in February that he would not be running for a ninth term in office.

No Democrat has filed to run for the District 42 seat, meaning that Anthony’s successor will be determined in the June 12 Republican primary.
