David Thompson can’t wait to get back in the saddle.

The newly-elected mayor is looking forward to building a working partnership with the new city council and community-based organizations with the hope of continually moving the city forward.

“I want everyone to get along, and I have no problem helping anybody if I can,” said Thompson. “but, when you treat others in a wrong way, expect to be treated the same in return. Hopefully, things will go a lot smoother this time around.”

In his last two terms as mayor, Thompson saw numerous improvements to the city of Barbourville, including the city’s park systems, updating of the baseball fields, a boat ramp installed at Thompson Park, the addition of a 100-yard football field and 30 new campsites, just to name a few.
