Fortson wins election for Hull Council Seat

Brandon Fortson bettered Randell A.C. King on Tuesday in a rare contested race to take a seat on the Hull City Council.

The final vote tally was 28-6, with one provisional ballot cast by a voter who just recently moved into the city and wasn't yet on the rolls.

"I caught anybody I saw all day and encouraged them to go vote," Fortson said Tuesday night, as he sat down to a victory dinner with his wife.
Hull is located just outside of Athens in Madison County.
Fortson ,who is 25 years old is a firefigher for Athens-Clarke County.
