Corey Louis Hendrickson

Samuel Snider

Next week’s election includes many city and school races. The following are races of local interest, including the Mayor of the City of Willard:

Name: Corey Louis Hendrickson
Education: I graduated high school in Salt Lake City, Utah, and went on to study Transporation and Logistics Management at American Military University. I continue to seek out educational opportunities and classes that better not only myself and my career, but my role as mayor.
Occupation: Refrigerated Fleet Manger at Prime Inc. in Springfield, April 1999 to present.
Family: My two daughters are graduates of Willard High School. Hannah went on to graduate last May from Truman State University with degrees in Biology and Chemistry, and is currently pursuing her PhD at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA. Grace is currently studying at the University of Central Florida majoring in Entertainment Management. My son Tyler is set to graduate from Willard High School this May and plans to attend OTC's heating, refrigeration and air conditioning program in the fall.
Why should someone vote for you? I have made it my focus to give back to the community. Any time something is going on, you can typically find me out looking for ways to help. Whether it be assisting new business startups, helping clear debris after a storm rolls through, or providing time and equipment to help the high school band, I try to help out as much as possible. My heart is in this community and I have been honored to serve as mayor and hope to be given the opportunity to continue. My goal is to leave Willard better than when I stepped into this role. I strive to be involved, active, and make a difference for our town, and I pride myself with being only a phone call or Facebook message away when citizens have any questions.

Name: Samuel Snider
Education: Willard High School; Professional Certificates- Certified Municipal Official with the Missouri Municipal League, EXCEL Leadership certificate from the University of Missouri
Occupation: Banker and small business owner
Family: I have eight siblings, five brothers, three sisters and I am the proud father of my three-year old daughter Alyvia.
Why should someone vote for you? As an alderman for the past five years, I have served the people of Willard, both representing my ward/district at board of aldermen meetings, and advocating on behalf the city of Willard to the Missouri legislature. As mayor, I will focus on enacting policies that help the city of Willard maintain its infrastructure and grow.
First, I will focus on reducing the City of Willard’s approximately $8,000,000 of debt obligations. Second, I will focus on securing additional funds to be used on repairing city roads. And third, I will focus on improving communication between city hall and residents, ensuring the citizens of Willard are properly informed and kept up to date on city business.
