George Hintz is hoping to unseat longtime City Council member Dean Hove and represent combined Wards 1 and 2. Hintz aims to restore decorum to City Council and focus on taxes, senior issues and the wants and needs of the city.

Hintz is a recently retired small-business owner, having run the Christian Book Store for many years, and he now hopes to commit his free time to the Red Wing community and council. Formerly, he served on the board of directors for Red Wing Downtown Main Street.

Hintz and his wife, Rose, have lived in Red Wing for 48 years and their two sons live in the Red Wing area as well.

Stephanie Elsen also is running for the seat in the Aug. 14 primary.
