Two Candidates For Ward 6 Seat

Two Christian County natives have applied for the position on Hopkinsville City Council left vacant by Ann Cherry. Former BB&T Bank President Wendell Lynch, and longtime broadcaster and former State Representative candidate Jimmy Burks have both filed their applications to fill the open Ward 6 seat. Lynch says his interest in the Ward 6 seat is rooted in his belief that unselfish service to the community is a responsibility that we all share.

Lynch says he plans to also file as a Democrat for the seat and run in the election. Burks says holding an office is something he's always been interested in.

He says he is not planning on running in the election in November.

Council members will interview the two candidates and select a replacement at their February 4th meeting. If a replacement is not seated by February 6th the Governor may select a replacement.
