Debbie Helton

I am Debbie Helton and I am a lifelong resident of Montgomery County. I am deeply committed to Mt Sterling as I have resided on West Main Street for over 40 years with my husband David. I have a son and an amazing granddaughter.

Besides serving on the City Council, I am a school bus driver for the Montgomery County school system — a job that I have found to be very fulfilling.

I am a member of Camargo Church of God, in fact, the church I grew up in. I play bass guitar with the Praise & Worship team. I can also play guitar, and I aspire to learn the banjo.

In my spare time, you will find David and me enjoying the great outdoors, either driving through Red River Gorge, or camping.

As a member of city council, I encourage good financial stewardship and am not afraid to ask tough questions. I lead by placing God at the forefront of any decision I make and strive to consider the overall impact of all who live in our beautiful city. I am proud to serve my community as councilwoman alongside friends who love Mt. Sterling as much as I do.
