CHAPEL HILL – Chapel Hill Town Council candidate, Loren Hintz, says if he’s elected to the Council, he wants to make the implementation of the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan a top priority.

“I think one of the most important things for Council to do is to really carefully listen to the recommendations of the boards,” Hintz says. “Volunteers spend a lot of time giving ideas, and I think sometimes they’re frustrated, because they don’t think Council hears what they’re saying.”

WCHL’s Ran Northam spoke with Hintz about his seeking election to the Town Council and how he believes he’ll best serve you.

Nine candidates are contending for four seats on the Town Council.

Hintz recently retired as a science teacher from Chapel HillHigh School. He says his multi-faceted career prepares him well for the position.

“Probably the fact that I was a teacher for so long in the school system gives me a good chance to know what’s going on here,” Hintz says. “And then also the fact that I was a Peace Corp volunteer gives me a different perspective about the United States and the world.”

Between now and Election Day, we’ll be previewing each of the candidates one-on-one.
