Wanda Hammons is my kind of woman. Last year, I had the opportunity to see what real commitment and service to a community means when I met Wanda Hammons in Emerge Kentucky, a program that gives women the tools and confidence to run for public office. I personally witnessed her leadership skills, fearless commitment and sincere concern for people around her. She quickly rose to the top in a group of impressive individuals and I am honored to have spent six months in training with her. Wanda is extremely well spoken and smart and will be a legislator that can make a difference.
Hammons was raised in a family of public service and I believe her commitment to the citizens of her district is genuine and will continue to be a priority throughout her life.
As a professional in education administration, I respect her commitment to great and affordable education. It is the cornerstone to improving our communities. I am proud to endorse Wanda Hammons for State Representative and the families in 61st district will be fortunate to have her represent them.

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines the word servant as “a person who is devoted to or guided by something.” Elected officials are often referred as “public servants” as it is the hope that our elected officials are devoted to represent the voices of and guided by the concerns of those who elected them. As the people of the 61st district head to the polls to elect new representation for the position of state representative, I encourage my fellow citizens of the district to cast their vote for Brian Linder.
Brian epitomizes what a public servant should be. Throughout his two terms as magistrate on the Grant County Fiscal Court, Brian has served those he represents by devoting the time to visit routinely with constituents, asking what is important to them, listening to those concerns, and allowing the people to help guide him in his role as an elected official. This servant’s attitude, along with a strong sense of family values and high moral character, help comprise the type of leadership we need in our state House of Representatives.
Brian Linder is the type of leadership we need to represent the 61st district.
Wanda Crupper Hammons is a Democratic candidate for state representative in Gallatin, Grant and Owen counties and we support Wanda’s candidacy.
Wanda and Dewayne have been special long-time friends. As a result of our friendship, we have spent time traveling and motorcycle riding together. You get to know folks well when you spend quality time with them. Having spent a career in law enforcement, we understand all too well that public service is most certainly a family affair. Knowing Wanda and Dewayne, we feel confident that they understand this. We believe Wanda has the smarts, character and sound judgment needed to do this job.
We have big shoes to fill as a result of Rep. Royce Adams decision to retire. It is clear that to get things done in Frankfort it requires building friendships and relationships with other legislators and decision makers. There is no one in our community better suited to do this than Wanda.
You have an opportunity to make a real difference. If you will join us in casting a vote for Wanda Crupper Hammons on Tuesday, May 22. We all can win with Wanda as our representative.

The primary elections are quickly upon us. It is when we, the people, of Grant, Owen and Gallatin counties, let our voices be heard, casting our ballots on May 22. It is our time to shout to Frankfort and tell them what we want. We want better, and we need better for the great state of Kentucky. As we shout that demand, we need to be sure that we have a great voice.
Brian Linder is the voice that we need in Frankfort. A couple years ago when Brian was running for magistrate of Grant County, I was fortunate enough to be able to work along side of him, as he ran for that position. Serving as our magistrate, Brian’s passion for helping the people he represents has continued to grow. I have watched him as he consciously considers what is best for the community, humbly serving the people at the same time. That’s the kind of leader we need in Frankfort. That’s why we we need Brian Linder to represent the 61st District in Frankfort. It’s time to let our voice be heard.
You’ll have to excuse these two “proud” parents.
Those of you who know us, know that we have always been proud of our three children. Our youngest daughter, Wanda Crupper Hammons, is taking up our family business of public service. Wanda is a candidate for state representative for Gallatin, Grant and Owen counties in the May 22 Democratic Primary. As you would expect, we are more than a bit prejudice. We know Wanda would make a fine state representative. We would appreciate you supporting and voting for Wanda.
We were both raised on farms in Owen and Grant counties. Wanda has adopted our family practice of living and working by the lessons our family learned on the farms. In everything she has done, Wanda has always done whatever it takes to do the job right. Wanda has made us proud in her professional life. She did fine work in the school system. As an EMT and firefighter, she has demonstrated her servant’s heart. As a daughter, sister, wife, mother and now a grandmother, Wanda loves her family and makes us all proud. Our family believes these values will represent us well in Frankfort. Vote Crupper-Hammons May 22.

On Tuesday, May 22, we, as Americans, have the opportunity to shape our government by participating in choosing our elected officials. With this right and responsibility, I ask you to support Brian Linder on his run for state representative from the 61st district. As a Grant County magistrate, Brian has a proven track record of sound conservative “think before you spend” principles. This makes him an ideal choice for our state seat where he will continue his work to streamline government, help bring accountability to un-elected boards and support your second amendment rights. Make your vote count on May 22, join me and support Brian Linder for 61st district state representative. Make a change that makes sense.
I would like to take a moment to tell you about Wanda Hammons, candidate for state representative for the 61st district and why she is the one and only choice to fill the position. Wanda and her family currently reside in Grant County where her selflessness, philanthropy and service to her community are seen practiced every day by her dedication and long hours to her local schools, church and public services and ongoing volunteer work in which she has shown exemplary service in each of these areas.
Wanda’s unwavering dedication to her family and community are truly commendable and inspiring, I have had the privilege of know Wanda for over 13 years and have seen her “iron willed” commitment to her community never waiver, even in the face of adversity, Wanda will always stand firm and fight for what is best for her community. It is always good to know that you have a candidate that is not afraid of a debate, or to fight for the needs of the people she serves and will stand strong against the issues that are not in the best interest of the communities she will serve.
Wanda is now seeking to bring her selfless dedication and commitment to her community to the 61st District House of Representatives to carry on the long standing tradition of honest and genuine political representation of all the citizens of the 61st district. I for one cannot think of anyone more suited for the job.
Elections are only a short time away, and you deserve a say in who will best represent you in the 61st District, and you deserve the best and that best is a vote for Wanda Hammons, candidate for the House of Representative for the 61st district.
I am proud to endorse Wanda Crupper Hammons for state Representative. Wanda has what it takes to do a great job. I have known Wanda and her family for many years and, without a doubt, she is the best candidate in this race. She will be an outstanding legislator and voice in Frankfort.
Wanda Hammons has worked in public service for the past 13 years as an Emergency Medical Technician with Rural Metro in Grant County. She is also employed with the local fire department part-time as a fire fighter and EMT and serves part-time with the neighboring counties; in Owen County helping them from time to time as an EMT and at the speedway in Gallatin County. Wanda and her husband, Dewayne, have been married for 33 years and haves two sons, Brian and Craig, and five grandchildren.
Wanda is running for the right reasons. She is pro-life and pro-second Amendment to protect gun ownership. As her life is, her campaign is built upon strong faith and a solid moral compass to guide her. I trust that as your state representative, Wanda Crupper Hammons will get the job done and get it done right.
