Buzz Brockway is hoping to continue his service at the Gold Dome, the state representative said, announcing a run for re-election.
Brockway announced Sunday he would seek a third term representing House District 102, which covers parts of Lawrenceville and Suwanee.
“It’s been an honor to represent the people of Lawrenceville and Suwanee in the State House and I’d be honored to continue to represent their interests at our State Capitol for the next two years” Brockway said in a press release.
The former chairman of the Gwinnett GOP, Brockway has been named a “Defender of Liberty” by the American Conservative Union for the past two years and received 100 percent scores on legislative scorecards for Americans for Prosperity and the National Federation of Independent Businesses. He also has a B + average from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and A + average from the Georgia Parents Alliance, based on his work in the state House.
“I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished during my two terms in office but much more needs to be done,” Brockway said. “We’re starting to see improvement in the job market and the state economy is beginning to rebound because of the hard work of so many Georgians and a favorable business climate. However, we have a long way to go to get to where we want to be. I will continue to fight to make Georgia the best place in America to work, live, and raise children.”
First elected to the State House of Representatives in November of 2010, Brockway currently serves as a majority caucus deputy whip and as vice chairman of the Governmental Affairs Committee. He is also a member of the appropriations, economic development, and insurance committees.
