As Mayor of the City of Hyden, I would like to introduce myself. My parents are Lee and Hattie Hendrix. I was born in 1955, and raised in Leslie County. I graduated from Leslie County High School in 1974 and continued my education at Eastern Kentucky University. I was married in 1982 and after 13 years of marriage, Kay and I were blessed to have a son, Christian Trey, in September of 1995. Since 1982, I have owned and operated Hyden Florist with my wife Kay. I served as City Commissioner for one term and was elected Mayor in November 2006.
As City Clerk for the City of Hyden, I would like to introduce myself. I was born at home and delivered by a Mary Breckinridge Midwife named Carolyn Banghart in 1963. My parents are Bill and Joann Johnson. I have one brother, David, and one sister, Polly. I graduated from Leslie County High School in 1981. Jeff and I have been married for 20 years. We have one daughter, Tessa, and three sons, Justin, Jeffrey, and Zack. I also have two wonderful granddaughters, Hallie Anna Rose and Navaeh Ashlyn, ages six and two. Our home is located on Bakerfork. I worked at Mary Breckinridge Hospital for 6 years. I have been Clerk for the City of Hyden since July 2007. I am very appreciative to Mayor Hendrix and the City Council for allowing me to serve as City Clerk. It has been very gratifying to serve with such an impressive Mayor and Council that work so endlessly to improve the City of Hyden.
