Hinson is new to the scene in Richmond County’s politics. He will be running for the North Carolina House of Representatives in the 66th District.
Grant is a long-time resident of Montgomery County, and with the recent redistricting of North Carolina’s districts, he will now be running for the 66th seat, which includes all of Richmond County. Grant is running on the platforms of increasing rural internet access, greater transparency, and increased public safety. More information about Grant’s platforms can be found on his Facebook Page.
Other themes of the night’s meeting were increasing communication among the party and local citizens. The Richmond County Democratic Party wishes to reach out and find better ways for citizens to not only have a voice within the county, but have a greater overall awareness of what is happening.
Chairman Tavares Bostic spoke of unity within the party as upcoming local elections approach. He encouraged citizens, “to come out and vote as local officials are critical in their influence of local activities and development within Richmond County.”
Bostick called for citizens to, “pick up the pom-poms,” and get involved in local elections and communities. Bostick encouraged the young adults of Richmond County to get involved as well.
