Board of Commissioners, District 1
Democrat: Sig Hutchinson
In the 2018 primary, Sig Hutchinson lost allies John Burns and Erv Portman over the controversial Crooked Creek deal. But that didn’t scare him off taking bold stances, like backing RDU’s quarry deal with Wake Stone. A foremost parks advocate, Hutchinson adds balance to the board, and his presence will be vital as commissioners work through their transit plans.
