Walker announces candidacy for fiscal court magistrate

Lindsay Pope Walker announced her candidacy for magistrate in Jessamine County for the May 2018 primary election.

Walker has lived in Jessamine County for 44 years and is a graduate of Jessamine County High School. She earned a degree from Eastern Kentucky University in animal science and agriculture management and has served in diverse work backgrounds such as a full partner in a beef cattle, tobacco and hog farm, a veterinary assistant and has also owned and operated her own business.

“A magistrate is the face and voice of the district on the fiscal court, “ Walker said. “As your magistrate, I will represent your wishes, concerns, opinions and suggestions. I am a conscientious listener and an effective communicator and I will be a strong advocate for the 5th District, ensuring fair and equal treatment in all areas of public service.”

Walker was married to the late Steve Walker who served as Jessamine County Sheriff, deputy sheriff and commissioner. She is the mother of two children, Andrea Leigh Walker and Mathew George Walker. A lifelong Methodist, she attends Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church.

“I understand the job responsibilities, duties and limitations of a magistrate and I promise to serve with honesty, integrity and accountability,” Walker said. “Being a single mother who has raised and put two children through college, being fiscally responsible is not a political slogan to me. It is a lifestyle. I have a genuine love for Jessamine County. This is where I have chosen to live and raise my family. I know that with careful planning we can preserve our rural environment, our unique character and our rich history ensuring Jessamine County will be a place that our future generations will be proud to call home.”
