Weston Wamp and his campaign polluted the integrity of our county Republican primary. In this three-way county mayor’s race, the other Republican candidates worked their hearts out and then Weston Wamp with his army of Democrat crossover voters came in to decide the winner. It was dishonest! “Thou shalt not steal.”
Matt Hullander and Sabrena Smedley are both good Christian people. Wamp and his campaign had to engage in wholesale character assassination to win.
I’m sure that Weston Wamp’s assurances to Hamilton County would now go something like this, “I may have gotten the mayor’s office unethically, but be assured, I will govern with integrity.”
At the end of Matthew chapter seven, Jesus closed the Sermon on the Mount with this warning: “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: …and great was the fall of it.”
I grieve for the trouble that Weston Wamp will bring upon the people of Hamilton County; I also grieve for the trouble that will spill over to his own family.

Mr. Wysong, as a Christian I am embarrassed for you. You have taken a little information and used it to become the Holy Spirit. Do you actually know the number of crossover votes? Are you judging all Democrats to be evil people because they don’t think as you think? Shame on you. I can show you where other candidates asked for the crossover votes by using social media and other means.
I will assure you God doesn’t need you to sit in judgement any more than He needs me to. I think you owe an apology to Weston Wamp, his family, and those who voted for him. Sebrena and Matt are Christian by profession of their faith. Weston Wamp is also a Christian by profession of his faith. I don’t look for the sky to fall on Hamilton County, Tn. any sooner because of Weston than I do because of you judging, which you know is wrong.
The primary election is over and you are trying to sabotage the only Republican who will be in the general election. At the very least please get your facts right. The time for you to have spoken up would have been before the election, that is unless you have something to gain for yourself.
