Legislative Handbook

Did you know all 3 Governors, Zell Miller, Sonny Perdue, Nathan Deal, were once Democrats?  Debra served with all 3 when she was in the House of Representatives?


 Jim Beck, our current Insurance Commissioner worked in Lt. Governor Pierre Howard's (D) office the same year.

The party was very different, 27 years ago. It no longer resembles what it once was.

It has changed dramatically.  


In Ronald Reagan's words,

"I didn't leave the Democratic party, the party left me."
