George was also appointed by Secretary of State Scott Gessler to serve on the Advisory Committee on a Uniform Voting System.

George has also long been engaged in the political world, beginning as a Congressional Intern for Senator Jacob Javits of New York. A strong proponent of governmental fiscal responsibility and individual rights, George stands firmly against the out of control spending of the federal government and the intrusiveness of the nanny state.
