During her time on the Commission, Walker has focused on economic development, fiscal conservatism, transparent communication, and building community relationships.

“For the past nine years it has been my privilege to serve my hometown on the Montgomery County Commission. Representing the interests of the people in district three has been a great honor and a responsibility I never took lightly.”
During Walker’s tenure on the County Commission, Montgomery landed the F35 fighter jet squadron, established a relationship with ESPN to host three ESPN college football games each year, developed the inland port project, and built the Olympic standard Montgomery Whitewater adventure center.
