Himmelright

Name: Jason Himmelright.

Age: 52.

Running for: Spring Hope town commissioner.

Education: Associate degree in biology, specializing in respiratory care.

Prior elected offices: None.

Occupation: Respiratory therapist.

Married, children? Married 17 years to wife Terah. We have two boys, 12, and 15.

Why are you running for office? I am running for two primary reasons. One, infrastructure and the lack of  action regarding our water system. Our current board seems to be fine with constant water breaks and paying outrageous prices to Envirolink to fix them. Two is the lack of vision with town growth. The zoning requirements for future development will affect traffic and wear and tear on our dilapidated infrastructure. Currently, zoning requests are rubber-stamped by the board, even when conflicting with prior zoning parameters. These requests need to be evaluated thoroughly so that we may keep Spring Hope, Spring Hope.

What is the greatest challenge your office will face? I feel my biggest hurdle will be to get the majority of citizens to have faith that the new board will address issues, big and small, that concern any and all citizens, not just an elite few.

What do you enjoy most about our area? Spring Hope offers the best of two worlds. The small-town charm where my boys can safely walk downtown for an ice cream and the convenience of being so close to Raleigh and the amenities, culture and entertainment it offers.
