Laura & family,

It was an honor to work with Commissioner Carter in the early days after the unification of Athens-Clarke County. He was a man of few words, so when he spoke everyone listened. The decisions he made during his tenure were always done so in the best interest of his community. I consider it a privilege to have known him and to now be representing District 1, his District. He truly lived the Athenian Oath:

"We will never bring disgrace on this our City by an act of dishonesty or cowardice. We will fight for the ideals and Sacred Things of the City both alone and with many. We will revere and obey the City's laws and will do our best to incite a like reverence and respect in those above us who are prone to annul them or set them at naught. We will strive increasingly to quicken the public's sense of civic duty. Thus in all these ways we will transmit this City, not only not less, but greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us."

Rest in peace, my friend. - My best, Sharyn
