Remembering Richard Hinton
AWARE News Network
Richard Hinton made many friends among those he met during his all-too-short time in office. He will be remembered with great affection. This is a link to the Tiny Cottager, which gave him an enthusiastic endorsement when he first ran for office in 2014. He did not disappoint. And even after he became ill, he pushed himself to represent the public interest – always thinking of the seventh generation.
