Ok, there’s 180 members of the House, but there’s only one that is an Editor here at Peach Pundit. Buzz probably gets a lot more grief than he does benefit from his continued association with us. He’s routinely singled out by folks that believe they can get him to make a quote here that serves their political purposes rather than to further debate. Despite such, he’s the same Buzz Brockway that was here before I was, and the same Buzz Brockway that he was before he was sworn in as a member of Georgia’s House. He’s a man I’m proud to call my friend, and extremely happy he will offer himself for continued public service.

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.

Conservative Union for the past two years, and scored 100% on

“I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished during my two terms in office
but much more needs to be done. We’re starting to see improvement in

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” Brockway said.
