I support George DeLoach in his re-election bid to the state House of Representatives. He has well-served residents of this area.
I have been a member of the Georgia House for 14 years, eight of those in the Leadership of the Republican Caucus. In my time of service, I have come to know Mr. DeLoach well and to respect his abilities.
He is one of the most thoughtful and hard-working legislators I have ever worked with. He is always knowledgeable on issues, and his work ethic is unassailable.
While other lawmakers get the big splash, Mr. DeLoach is always in his seat - two behind me - diligently studying the bills before our chamber.
I have found his grasp of issues and his thorough understanding of the nuances of legislation are a huge value to our caucus and to the people he represents so well.
Finally, I can always count on Mr. DeLoach to be there when the party needs him, as in last year's redistricting fight. He is a true Republican and a staunch defender of the ideals that make this a great country and great state.
