    Candidates:
    Sadie Brockhouse: Current head of the Hinhold Labor Union, Sadie and her family have always been strong advocates for the working hin, going all the way back to their time in Peltarch's Halfling Labor Union, and later as undersecretaries for the Peltarch Docks Union.

    Gnome Representative - Speaks for the interests of the Gnomish community of Hinhold

    Candidates:

    Floki Tilnook: The youngest child of Feldegast Tilnook, Floki wants to see programs instituted to ensure that gnomes have a fair shake at jobs throughout town despite hin being in the overwhelming majority.

    Candidates:
    Hafur Bruntaingo: Dwarven veteran, lost an arm in the fall of Aura Runedar. A fierce advocate for Hinhold assisting his people in rebuilding their home as the hin have done, he wishes to see aid funds diverted to dwarven attempts to reclaim it.
