Lieutenant Gov Duncan

Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan speaks to members of the Cumming Chapter of Vietnam Veterans at the Aug. 6 general membership meeting.

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan was back home in Forsyth County recently and spoke to Cumming Vietnam Veterans.

He said health care is a “broken system,” because it’s too expensive and hard to get access to. He added that Georgia is working to improve it through a system called “Tele-health,” where people can access basic medical care via their cell phone. Duncan added this system would markedly improve care in rural Georgia where access to care is most problematic.

Duncan said Forsyth County has great schools, but many children around the state do not have the same opportunity for a good education. 

He also spoke about economic development. Duncan said he wants to make Georgia the technology capital of the east coast.
