Hammons serves others
I would like to endorse Wanda Hammons for state representative for the 61st district. I had the privilege to work with and learn from Wanda during the Emerge Kentucky 2011 training program. Wanda was always knowledgeable, professional, and serious about serving others. Wanda has the ability to inspire and lift up communities. She has the experience, training and desire to serve the 61st district well. I know she will serve this district and all Kentuckians well for years to come.
