Noblesville Common Council District 4 now has three Republican candidates as Wil Hampton filed his paperwork Feb. 4 for the upcoming May 5 primary. Hampton has lived in Noblesville for nearly 20 years.
“This is the right time to step up,” he said. “I think I offer a fresh perspective and positive attitude.” Hampton, a longtime local sportscaster on television and radio, is the executive director for athletic events and marketing at Marian University.
“My career has always been about connectivity and results,” Hampton said. “I believe I can use my ability to communicate and discover what voters of Noblesville want to see from their elected leaders.”
Hampton has served on the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation since 2007 and was the chairman of the Educate Noblesville PAC that led to school expansion and brought IVY Tech to Noblesville. He is an active member of Our Lady of Grace Church where he teaches religious education. Hampton also has coached youth sports since 1999 for CYO, Noblesville Youth Baseball, Noblesville Babe Ruth and Noblesville Boys and Girls Club.
Being a public servant is not new to Hampton whose father served as mayor of his hometown of Muncie.
“I remember dad talking about the pride he felt when he could make something better for Muncie and its citizens,” he said. “That’s really what this is all about; it’s a chance to give back and be more than just a part of the process and to communicate with all involved and really dig into what we need to do in the coming years to work and grow together as a community.”
Hampton has been married to his wife, Becky, for 27 and the couple have three children: John, a student at Ball State, and NHS freshmen twins, Will and Maggie. Hampton may be reached at email@example.com.
