Samuel L. Huey of Hornbeak has announced his candidacy for mayor of Hornbeak in the town’s Nov. 4 election.
Huey, the son of the late Samuel L. and Elizabeth Huey, graduated from Obion County Central High School in 1962 and attended U.S. military supply school.
He retired from the U.S. Navy after 21 years of service in the supply corps, during which time he earned five Good Conduct Awards, the Vietnam Service Medal, the Vietnam Campaign Medal and the Meritorious Unit Award.
He also retired from utility service work in Florida.
Huey is a member of Hornbeak Pentecostal Church and a member of Woodmen of the World Lodge 196, which he formerly served as president for four years.
He and his wife, Willie Huey, have been residents of Hornbeak for the past three years. They have three children: Terry L. Huey of Baltimore, Md., Kimberly Roberson of Pensacola, Fla., and James H. Archie of Troy.
If elected as Hornbeak’s mayor, Huey said his goals will be to complete the town’s sewer system installation and the park and recreation area, as well as to start the new fire station building program.
