Anne Crawford seeks Fifth District Republican nomination

Posted on April 14, 2018 9:08 AM

Anne Churchill Crawford is a candidate on the Republican ballot for Magistrate, 5
th District. She is a fiscal and social conservative who has always listened intently to the concerns of friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. Her sincerity, honesty, and thoughtfulness have been a comfort to many.

 Anne was a teacher whose career spanned 30 years. She taught mathematics at every level from elementary through college. “I was usually the first to arrive and almost always the last to leave” she said, “often working with a student, parent, or both.” She added, ”These are the traits you want in a teacher, and you want the same traits in a magistrate.” 

Anne and her husband Darrell, a retired U.S. Army veteran, have been married 40 years. “My teaching jobs had to follow Darrell’s change of duty stations” she said, “but I also had a job to do in support of the military—to help our military families.” 

“During DESERT SHIELD/ DESERT STORM I was the Family Support Group Leader for our battalion’s nearly 200 families whose spouses had been deployed to Iraq. Having hppy, healthy families at home helps soldiers focus on their mission and makes units deployed to war stronger.” She added, “Being able to work with so many different people with varying needs and circumstances are also traits you want in a magistrate.”

Anne and Darrell, both of whom were raised in rural environments here in Kentucky, have owned their farm on Chandlers Road north of Auburn for 35 years. “We decided to go into farming and raise Polled Hereford cattle,” she said, “to follow in my grandfather’s footsteps.” 

Darrell has had to be away for long periods of time supporting the military in the Middle East, and Anne had to learn to use the farm equipment to ‘keep things going. When I had a challenge I wasn’t sure how to solve I called neighbors or other ‘farm friends’ for assistance or advice.” She made it work, which is the same sense of responsibility needed in a Magistrate.

The Crawfords have been members of Auburn’s Pearce Memorial United Methodist Church for 16 years where Anne has served as Choir Director, Youth Group Leader, and helped out however needed. Anne has also been a DAR member (Daughters’ of the American Revolution, a community assistance-based organization) for the past three years, and she’s been in the deGraffenried Chorale since 2002.

Anne chose to run for Magistrate because she loves this community. If elected, she plans to work tirelessly to represent all of its residents competently, fairly, honestly, and ethically. She believes you could have no better advocate.

Anne is hosting a ‘meet the candidate’ event at Christina’s Place in downtown Auburn from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 19. She would be happy to meet people there or take questions at 270-542-7336 or 270-847-3249.
