State Representative Debra Conrad of Forsyth County has decided not to run for re-election next year.

Conrad is well known to Forsyth County voters. She’s currently serving a fourth term representing the 74th District in the House after working for almost two decades as a county commissioner.

Last year Conrad defeated her Democratic opponent by a 10 percent margin. Redistricting will likely make the 74th more competitive in 2020. She has endorsed fellow Republican Jeff Zenger, a Lewisville council member, for her seat in next year’s election.

Conrad says in a news release that she will “seek new opportunities in business and politics.”

Candidate filing begins Monday.
