"For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in politics, but was never quite sure what to do with that interest. That is, until Amanda Lynn Hinson visited," Hunter said. "It’s not often that you see Congressional candidates visiting small towns such as mine, but that’s just what Amanda did."
Hunter is actively involved in leadership roles in his community including Boy Scouts (Senior Patrol Leader), Robotics (Business Manager), National Honor Society, Church Council (Councilman), along with working part-time. After discussing the campaign and seeing his enthusiasm for a grassroots effort, Amanda invited Hunter to join the team. Seeing the campaign's focus is on the people of the district, Hunter agreed.
"Not only is it a great opportunity to help the Hinson campaign but I also hope to further my own aspirations of being a voice for my generation," Hunter said.
Hunter, who is still too young to vote, has already helped in organizing parade details and started the campaign's Instagram account to reach out to younger voters. "Some may see my age as a disadvantage, but I think it will provide an alternative perspective and perhaps inspire others my age to join the cause."
Thank you, Hunter, for getting involved! You can check out Team Hinson's new Instagram account by searching @ForHinson or click here.
