In the three-way race for Barbourville City Mayor, it was former mayor David Thompson who outgunned current mayor Darren West and City Councilman Gary Williams, with 516 votes compared to Williams at 401 and West at 290.

“It was my choice to become mayor eight years ago,” said Thompson. “And without my family, the city employees, members of the community and some very good friends, I wouldn’t have been re-elected today.”
