The City That Moves Mountains

Mayor

James A. Carter


 

It is an honor and a privilege to serve in the role as Mayor for the citizens of Pikeville.  I would like to thank you the citizens of Pikeville as you have allowed me to continue the work and progress we have made with completing a vast majority of our projects in our 10 year comprehensive plan.  I hope the work we do as the governing body of Pikeville is satisfactory to you.As the City of Pikeville continues to grow and  work together for the common good we can continue to be the most progressive city in Kentucky. Since the adoption of our comprehensive plan most of the projects have already been completed or in the process of completion.  I will continue to work for more progress and work toward attracting businesses and job opportunities for our young people so they will continue to live and raise their families here. I vision our city as being a bigger influence on other municipalities in our area as we expand our infrastructure to improve our way of life here in Eastern Kentucky.

Sincerely

Jimmy Carter
