State Representative B.J. Pak Will Seek Re-election to the Georgia General Assembly

The legislator currently represents District 102, located in Gwinnett County.

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.

The problem with Mr. Pak's re-election or that of any other member of the Georgia House is who knows how he has voted on the various issues? Until members' votes on all, or at least the most significant, issues are regularly made public, unless the member is one of the notorious ones hunted down by the AJC, there is no way to know whether he deserves re-election or not. Perhaps Mr. Pak himself will choose to make his votes public so that the voters are not treated like fools. Otherwise, why not just pick a new representative who pledges to do so?

Mr. Thomas, A voting record of all representatives are public. You can look at how any representative has voted by linking here: http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/en-US/VoteList.aspx Moreover, if there is a particular bill, you can type in the bill bumber here: http://www.house.ga.gov/en-US/default.aspx and go to the heading "Votes" -- if you click on it, it will have how the representative voted. For example, here is the vote on HB 371: http://www.legis.ga.gov/legislation/en-US/Display/20112012/HB/371 if you click on "House Vote #147" which means the 147th vote for this session, you'll see that I voted for the legislation. If you still cannot find how I voted on a particular bill, please feel free to contact me: votebjpak@gmail.com or (404) 656-0254, and I will gladly tell you. Regards BJP
