    Meet Mayor Lynn Jones

    Lynn was born on a cold November Sunday morning in his Grandfather’s farm house nestled along the western border of Calvert City.  Lynn’s parents, H. B. and Sarah, reared three boys and one girl and provided Lynn opportunity to attend Calvert City Elementary and North Marshall High School. Lynn continued his formal education at Paducah Junior College, Campbellsville College, Murray State University, and Liberty University.

    Lynn is a Gideon, a member of the Pathway Baptist Church, as well as a member of many community and state associations.  He is a retired nursing home administrator, having served 19 years at Calvert City Convalescent Center’s 100 bed facility.  He celebrates 40 years of marriage to Nancy Wallace on September 21, a relationship that blessed him with two children and four grandchildren. 

    Lynn began his service to Calvert City by serving four years on the City’s Municipal Water and Waste Board.  From 1987 until 1997, he served as a member of Calvert City Council.  He has served as Mayor since 1998.

    “I know of no greater honor than to serve the people of this great community.  I am most proud to be from Calvert City, to make Calvert City my home, and to make Calvert City my future.”

    Lynn’s hobbies include fishing, hunting, and “front porch swing sitting”.  Lynn also enjoys gardening, woodworking, and reading.

    “I’m a ‘tree hugger,’ love nature, and strongly believe that progress and earth can dwell together in harmony if mankind respects and protects God’s creation.  That’s why I’m excited about Calvert City’s future with the airport, multi-use trails, and parks.  Yes, the best of life is right here and that life is limited only by our imagination.  So, let’s imagine big, another generation depends on us!”
