He also highlighted infrastructure improvements on Hessen Cassel, including sidewalk and curb installation from Oxford to Tillman.

"I've had some health issues, and also, I think it's time that we have somebody else come along, and I don't want to wait until the last minute and announce it. I thought I'd do it today so whoever my replacement will be will have plenty of time to mount a campaign," Hines said.
