Rep. B.J. Pak (R-Lilburn) announced today that he would seek re-election to the Georgia House of Representatives. The newly configured House District 108, the vast majority of which Pak currently represents, encompasses the City of Lilburn, and unincorporated portions of Lilburn, Norcross, Mountain Park, and Stone Mountain.
After the 2010 census, the district was redrawn slightly last year to account for the population growth in Gwinnett County,and the state.
"It has been a tremendous honor and privilege to represent the people of House District 102," Pak said in a press release. "The Legislature addressed several major issues over the last two years, but there's much more we can do on jobs, education, and crime.
While the district lines may have changed slightly, I am excited about the opportunity to meet additional constituents, and to continue to provide a conservative, conscientious voice at the Capitol for everyone in the district."
Pak, a former federal prosecutor and a litigation partner at the national law firm of Ballard Spahr LLP, serves as a member of the Judiciary Non-Civil, Health and Human Services, and Code Revision Committees.
Pak won the House seat in November of 2010 by an overwhelming 69 to 31 percent margin over his democratic opponent.
Representative Pak and his wife, Sandra, have three daughters and live in Lilburn. They are members of St. John Neumann Catholic Church.
