FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — One of the key local races to be decided Tuesday will be in north Forsyth County’s new State House District 28 where Brent Cox will face Julie Tressler.
Tressler is a longtime conservative who once served as President of the Women’s Republican Party in Forsyth County. Cox is a newcomer to politics who made a strong showing at the Republican Party Town Hall last week.
Tressler missed the Town Hall as a result of a concussion she suffered in a fall at her home. That could prove difficult for her to overcome since she lost to Cox by about 1,000 votes in the general primary and barely made the runoff.
Cox is a former football coach, teacher, and successful businessman who designed, engineered, and sold ventilation hood systems to the food service industry globally.
Polls will open at 7 am Tuesday and are expected to close at 7pm.
