You have our full support.”
“Brandon, I welcome you to Hellertown. Hellertown is a great place to start a business…and we wish you many, many years of success,” Heintzelman said.

He also thanked Wimbish for agreeing to be one of the first announced sponsors for the 2018 Saucon Valley Spirit Parade, which will be held in October.
“Thank you all for coming out. Thank you for welcoming me to the community. We’re going to have a lot of fun here and hopefully I can help all of you out,” Wimbish said before cutting the ribbon outside his office at 1222 Main Street, in a building that was recently renovated and now sports an attractive dark brown metal awning.
