Hopkinsville Mayor Running for Re-Election, Plans Continuing ‘Quality of Life’ Investments

via Carter Hendricks' Facebook page

 Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks is running for reelection in November 2018.

Hendricks said he wants to continue investing in ‘quality of life’ programs like parks and recreation, public safety, neighborhood infrastructure and downtown revitalization.


He said this includes the initiative between Christian County and Hopkinsville called “Wellness Infrastructure in Neighborhoods Equal Success,” or WINS, comprised of 60 sidewalk improvement projects and a multipurpose indoor sports facility.


Hendricks said his goal is to “make the community the best it can be and make it a place that people want to come to.”


Hendricks said since he was elected as mayor in 2014, Hopkinsville has held accomplishments including hosting visitors during the 2017 total solar eclipse.
