45 years ago, Lou Wetmore saw potential in Hickory. He believed so strongly in the opportunities Hickory provided that he risked his entire career to stay. Now, Lou wants to bring back the same feeling of excitement to the citizens.
Lou believes Hickory’s future depends on careers and business opportunities brought to the next generation. As a former young entrepreneur, Lou knows what it takes to make this happen.
"Hickory needs a salesman. Our city needs someone to not only sell companies to come here, but to also sell our next generation of home-grown talent to stay and make this their home."
I’m Lou Wetmore. Hickory is my home. I came here, stayed here, raised my family here, and one day I’ll retire here. I believe Hickory is the best place for all three phases of life. I’m asking for your vote so I can bring my tenacity and experience to City Council, so that we can help Hickory and its residents reach their full potential. Please vote for me on October 8th, and if you have any questions, please feel free to call me personally at (828)270-7673.
