12 Questions With Hickory Creek Mayor, Lynn Clark

12 Questions With Hickory Creek Mayor, Lynn Clark

by Steve Gamel

The folks at Lake Cities Living decided to play a friendly game of 10 Questions with Hickory Creek Mayor, Lynn Clark.
Lucky for us, she was gracious to let us into her world.

Lake Cities Living: What do you love the most about your job?

Mayor Lynn Clark: Meeting with and working with people in Hickory Creek. I enjoy working with them and figuring out solutions to problems that come up.

 

Lake Cities Living: What do you dislike the most about your job?

Mayor Lynn Clark: Social media. Sometimes, there’s not a complete understanding of the issue, and I’m all about sitting down face to face to talk rather than commenting on social media. Whether or not you agree, it’s nice to be able to explain why something is the way it is. Those are far more productive than social media.

 

Lake Cities Living: What is the one thing no one knows about you?

Mayor Lynn Clark: My great, great, great uncle, William T. Malone, died at the battle of the Alamo.

 

Lake Cities Living: If you could be something other than a Mayor, what would it be?

Mayor Lynn Clark: I would love to be a travel writer; get paid to travel.

 

Lake Cities Living: Which would you rather fight? A bear or a lion?

Mayor Lynn Clark: A bear. I might be able to hide under something.

 

Lake Cities Living: What is the ugliest thing you own?

Mayor Lynn Clark: Probably an old sweatshirt. When I get home, I want to be comfortable. I may not match, so I hope no one comes to the door.

 

Lake Cities Living: Do you have any phobias?

Mayor Lynn Clark: Weather fears. My family is originally from Waco, and my great grandparents owned a store in downtown Waco. It was destroyed in a tornado. There were over 100 people killed in that tornado, and the bulk were in that furniture store. When I hear tornado warning, I am in the closet. As a mayor, you worry about something like that happening in your town.

 

Lake Cities Living: If you could time travel, where would you go?

Mayor Lynn Clark: I’d go back to when I was a little girl and got to spend a week at my grandmother’s house every summer.

 

Lake Cities Living: What is your biggest regret?

Mayor Lynn Clark: My dad’s mom was killed in a car accident when he was young, and my mom died of a brain tumor when she was 71. I wish they could have known their grandchildren.

 

Lake Cities Living: Superman or Batman?

Mayor Lynn Clark: Superman! I grew up with Superman.

 

Lake Cities Living: What is your favorite color?

Mayor Lynn Clark: Blue

 

Lake Cities Living: What are your hobbies?

Mayor Lynn Clark: I love to read, travel, and spend time with my family and grandkids.
