Businessman and former U.S. Army Captain Clayton Hinchman is running for Congress in the 5th Congressional District. The 5th Congressional District is currently represented by Congressman Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, and Brooks has also qualified setting up for a contested Republican primary.
“The top job of the congressman for this district should be working as an ambassador for the district in recruiting jobs for North Alabama and creating a thriving business environment by working with local leaders in each area to have a focused vision for North Alabama,” Hinchman wrote on his website. “Creating jobs starts by having an office that is open for business. Companies that are looking to create opportunities throughout the United States need to know that our office will be open to every discussion and will look at every option to bring in business, and will work with existing businesses to help in growth.”
