Hinnant running for Kannapolis mayor

KANNAPOLIS — City Councilman Darrell Hinnant has announced plans to run for mayor.
Hinnant is the second council member to say he’ll seek the seat held by Mayor Bob Misenheimer, who isn’t seeking re-election after eight years in office. Councilman Tom Kincaid announced his bid in March.
Founder and chief scientific and technology officer of dHinnant Business Solutions, Inc., Hinnant has served on the council for 12 years.
“As a small business owner I understand the pressures individuals continue to face in today’s economic climate,” stated Hinnant said in a news release. “It’s important that as a community we develop the resources that can foster economic growth, job creation, a qualified workforce and a strong infrastructure that can lead the City of Kannapolis into a promising future.”
Hinnant emphasizes his tenure at the city’s representative on the Water and Sewer Authority of Cabarrus County, saying he has “played a leading role in policy and resource development, particularly during the recent four year draught.” His
His greatest focus, the news release said, has been on a joint venture with the city of Concord that would establish a permanent source of water with the development of an 18-mile water line to High Rock Lake to reduce demand on the community’s natural resources.
A recipient of the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, North Carolina’s highest public service award, Hinnant has worked alongside former Gov. James G. Martin as the executive director of the N.C. Hazardous Waste Management Commission.
