Sarah Hampton

Washington County Justice of the Peace, District 1, AR

Sarah is a 24 year old with strong values who believes people were given two ears and one mouth so they could listen twice as much as they speak. She is dedicated to being present for and serving her community, whether that’s helping behind the scenes or behind a megaphone. She sees a genuine need in the political atmosphere for folks in office who understand and can truly represent the average person: someone who lives at or below the median income, who knows firsthand the struggles of the working class. Someone who understands the obstacles surrounding renting and homebuying for this generation in this economy, and who has navigated the college expense roller coaster.

Sarah wants to see people who acknowledge their privilege when discussing ordinances that will disproportionately affect some more than others, and work to find a solution that can equitably benefit those who need it most. She hopes to see people who can empathize and have compassion for their fellow humans. She believes she can bridge this gap and be this person for her neighbors. Her background in the customer service industry has prepared her to put the people she serves first, and her strong sense of integrity and love for people assure her that she is capable of doing what’s right. She knows Washington County can do better when it comes to infrastructure, transportation, and providing resources to build up the community. She is running because she wholeheartedly believes it’s the right thing to do.
