FRIENDSWOOD — Citing a heavy workload and the desire to spend more time with his family Galveston County Democratic Party chairman Tony Buzbee stepped down as the party’s leader Friday. Buzbee an attorney and former candidate for state representative had been on the job for a little more than 20 months after first taking the reigns following the 2003 resignation of former party chair Mary Ellen Brennen.

”Business is so good and I have four kids all under the age of 8 years old; it’s just getting to be too much” Buzbee said. ”I’m proud of what we have been able to accomplish but this is the best thing for me and for the party.”
