Bakersfield mayoral candidate Kyle Carter is running against Karen Goh in the Nov. 8 election.

Carter grew up in Bakersfield and launched his own home building business before selling the business in 2003.

"I really feel driven that this is a good job for me," Carter said. "I think it is a great time to have a developer, a home builder in the office."
