From STAFF REPORTS
Tommy Cundiff, Union Hall representative on the Franklin County Board of Supervisors since 2015, has filed for reelection. Cundiff is a Union Hall native and graduate of Franklin County High School.
Cundiff is being challenged by John D. Hinkell.
Cundiff served in the U.S. Army National Guard from 1972 to 1978, and worked at J.P. Stevens for 24 years. He also has 20 years’ experience in equipment sales and transport.
If reelected, Cundiff said he hopes to improve the infrastructure in Union Hall to bring in more business, and look at establishing a park with swimming access.
Cundiff also wants to focus on a new Career and Technical Education Center facility for Franklin County High School.
“We need to get started so we can keep our young people here, working and trained,” Cundiff said.
He said he will continue supporting trails, tourism, public safety, and 911 call center updates.
Cundiff added that having been born and raised in Union Hall, he’s in touch with his constituents’ needs but also understands the concept of balanced growth as times change.
Cundiff emphasized that he’s “open to listening,” and welcomes constituent concerns and ideas.
