Geoff Duncan, pictured on Tuesday, April 24, is a businessman with venture capitalism experience who spent a brief stint representing Cumming in the Georgia General Assembly. In his run for lieutenant governor, Duncan is downplaying his time in the Georgia House in favor of his time in the private sector.

State Sen. Greg Dolezal, R-Cumming, will propose a constitutional amendment creating a term limit for Georgia’s lieutenant governor position.

Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan said in a statement Thursday that he supports the idea.

“The Office of Lt. Governor is no place for academic tenure,” Duncan said. “Individuals elected to this office should focus solely on serving Georgians, and no Lt. Governor should consider this post a permanent home.”

The proposal would limit the lieutenant governor to two consecutive four-year terms. There are not currently term limits on the position.
