2018 is a big election year for the state of Georgia. But if you are anything like me, you are usually too busy to pay as much attention to local politics as you should. So, to make things easier, I have started a series to pick apart each candidate’s pros and cons.
With introductions out of the way, meet Republican and State Representative Buzz Brockway.
Brockway’s campaign website says nothing about his childhood besides that he has lived in Lawrenceville, Georgia, since 1976.
Brockway graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1990 earning a Bachelor of Science in Management Science with a certificate in Economics. He worked for more than 20 years as an operations manager in the plastics manufacturing industry until he and his wife started their own business in 2005.
Brockway has also spent the last 20 years “fighting for conservative causes” by working with his local Republican party and getting active in grassroots campaigns. He has worked as a campaign manager, a writer, and eventually as the Chairman of the Party.
In 2010, Brockway successfully campaigned to become a state representative. This year, he has put himself in the running for Georgia’s Secretary of State.
In Brockway’s words, “I’m running for Secretary of State because I want Georgia to have the best elections system and be the easiest place to do business in America. With this goal in mind, I humbly ask for your vote and more importantly your prayers.”
If he is elected, Brockway promises to:
• Make it easier for you to start your own business, to renew your corporation annually, to obtain a professional license in your chosen profession, and to make your voice heard in our political process through voting.
• Modernize and streamline the election system by purchasing new voting machines with verifiable backup, ending the two-month run-off, purge the database of full social security numbers, and fight against any and every effort to manipulate the rules for partisan advantage.
• Get the Regulatory Review Council to do their jobs.
If you would like to elect Brockway as Georgia’s Secretary of State, the elections will be held on November 6.
