The Republican running to represent the heavily-Democratic Senate District 42 will hold his first campaign event on Aug. 21.

Greg Williams is a local conservative political commentator and the man behind www.gregslistlive.blog.com. He’s also currently the chairman of the Buckhead Young Republicans. He works in the mortgage industry as a residential mortgage banker.

Williams will face Democratic candidate Elena Parent in the November general election. Parent is an attorney and former state representative.

His campaign kickoff event will be held at the DeKalb County GOP headquarters on Aug. 21 at 6:30 pm.

“I’m excited to kick off the fall campaign at the DeKalb GOP Headquarters, we’ve been working all year to bring out the Republican vote in DeKalb County and now that we are less than 80 days away from the election, folks are paying attention and making their decisions about who to support in November,” Williams said via press release. “I am confident that my message of Transportation Freedom, Expanding School Choice, and Government Accountability will resonate with the voters in District 42.”

SD 42 includes Decatur, Avondale Estates, Toco Hills and Kirkwood.
