Gwinnett Daily Post | Grayson mayor will not seek re-election

GRAYSON – After serving the city of Grayson for a quarter century as mayor and city attorney, Mayor Jim Hinkle said he will not be a candidate for re-election this fall.

“I just think it’s time to drop back and smell the roses,” Hinkle said. “I’ve done just about everything I’ve wanted to do, and now we need to move along with some new people.”

Hinkle has served 24 years as mayor, including six terms in the 1980s and early 90s before taking a 10-year break. He was re-elected in 2001 as the city’s mayor.

When Hinkle began his service in the early 1980s, Grayson was a small community of only 495 residents. “This differs markedly to what it became during my current tenure of the last 12 years,” he said. “The city started to develop from a sleepy little town.”
