Hampton was recently named one of the 6th safest cities to live in by Security Baron, a consumer-focused website dealing in matters of security. If you would like to read more of the article it appears on my personal Mayor's Face Book page (Steve Hutchison - Mayor Hampton Georgia) and additionally on our Hampton Main Street Face Book page. I am very proud of our city as I know many of you are. We want to thank our outstanding police department for all the work they do in helping to protect our citizens and make Hampton the 6th safest city to live, in Georgia. Also, many of our neighborhoods help "watch out" for one another and any strange things they might see happening and are able to report to our police department on these matters. With everyone working together we can continue to be on the safe list for living.
There are numerous things going on in Hampton these days from Bear Creek Festival this past week to Porch Fest coming up on the second weekend in October. The city will also be hosting a City Farmer's Market located in the side parking lot of the Depot. Be sure and check out the vendors for everything from fruits & vegetables, pies, candies, cakes, and other baked goods, to hand crafted jewelry, soaps, flowers and more. We hope this will be a positive addition to our downtown during the month of October.
Remember our local elections are happening on November 5th. Be sure and exercise your right to vote and choose the candidates of your choice. You may check at city hall for the names of those running for office this year. There are eight candidates running. As you can see there is a wide range of choices for you to consider.
I hope you all have a great fall season.
