Until the court-ordered de-annexation ordered by Judge Dennis Foust, which left her home outside city limits, McNichols served nearly 11 uninterrupted years on the council. After renting an apartment within city limits, the council appointed her to serve as her own interim successor until next month’s general election. She and Wilkerson-Jasper announced intention to run for the seat.
McNichols said that she has worked for the Housing Authority of Cadiz for 21 years, and now serves as its executive director. She graduated from Trigg County High School and attended classes at Hopkinsville Community College. She said that she is the mother of two children and a grandmother of five.
“If re-elected, some of the items of interest I have for the council are to repair the water lines in the Turner Addition,” said McNichols. “What we have now is way-too-small, especially if there is a house fire in the area.”
McNichols said that she advocates the expansion of Wifi wireless Internet throughout the city, not just down town. “We need to expand revitalization beyond downtown as well, and explore the idea of getting a substation for the fire department beyond the interstate,” she said.
