Donnie Hinson, 54, will defend his seat as Spencer alderman in the upcoming election.
If elected this would be Hinson’s second term as alderman. He is a deputy sheriff and works in the Rowan County Justice Center. He has lived in Spencer since he was 18 and before that lived in China Grove.
Hinson is a graduate of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College and holds certifications for basic law enforcement training.
Hinson had a quiet first term on the board of aldermen and is hoping for re-election to use his newfound experience.
“Right now I don’t feel I’ve done a whole lot for the town,” he said. “I was just getting my feet wet. I hope that in the future I’ll be able to push more on getting the library opened back up and do a whole lot more for the town’s people.”
Hinson said he hopes word of mouth will help get his name to voters, and he also plans to use yard signs.
