Whereas, he was admitted to the South Carolina Bar in 1962 and practiced law in Spartanburg until 1991; and

Whereas, in 1991, Mr. Hines accepted the position as the Director of Voter Registration and Elections and has been a caring and successful leader, ably directing his staff and conducting well-run elections; and
