Whitley County now has a new county attorney.

Bob Hammons has been the county attorney before in the 1980s.

Hammons says he took a break to raise his children and grandchildren.

But now he is ready to make a difference in Whitley County and is thanking all of his supporters.

"This was a tough race. There was a lot of negative comments made. I think the people looked through that and saw what the real issue was and that's restoring in the integrity and respect to office of county attorney," said Bob Hammons.

Hammons beat two other candidates including the incumbent Don Moses.
