Two Democrats File For Hopkinsville Mayor



The Hopkinsville mayoral race will be interesting in 2014, with both a Republican and a Democratic primary. Former realtor and veteran, Willie Kendrick filed paperwork Tuesday to run in the Democratic primary for the seat, and former 3rd District State Senator Joey Pendleton confirmed his next political move by filing his paperwork for the Mayor's office as well. Pendleton, who will run as a Democrat, says he wants to make the city a place where people want to come and stay for generations.


   
Pendleton adds that his Frankfort and other legislative connections will help him serve the city well.


   
Pendleton says he wants to see Hopkinsville grow, in population and in retail and industrial opportunities. Meanwhile, Kendrick says he has contemplated the race for years.


   
He says even though he has not been as visible in the community, he has been working in the neighborhoods with the youth.


   
Kendrick would also like to see more cooperation between the governments of Hopkinsville, Oak Grove, and Christian County. The winner of the Democratic primary will face the winner of the Republican primary between Carter Hendricks and Jason McCraw.
