A well known community leader and businessman Steven W. Hammer has decided to run for the Vanderburgh County District #2 County Commission seat. Mr. Hammer is a lifelong Vanderburgh County resident.

He is married to Ashley Hammer, a cardiology Nurse Practitioner at St. Vincent Hospital, for 10 years. They have two (2) children, William, 20 and Addison, 7 and a dog named Flynn.

Steve is a successful real estate investor and restaurateur. He is a Principal Partner at Ohio Valley Properties and Roca Bar-North.

He is a 1988 graduate of Evansville Central High School and a 1992 graduate of the University of Kentucky with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration.

Steve and his wife Ashley are very much involved in the activities at St. Benedict Cathedral School and St. Benedict Church.

Mr. Hammer is a Vanderburgh County Republican precinct committeeman. He is also a member of University of Kentucky Alumni Association and a Life Member, active member of the University of Evansville Purple Aces Presidents Club, supporter of the Ted and Clare Ziemer Society of St. Vincent, and is a member of the Metropolitan Evansville Chamber of Commerce.

When we asked  Mr. Hammer why is running for the District #2 Vanderburgh County Commission he told us that; “he want to make it easier to do business with county government.”  He promised that he “will vote for any measure that promotes affordable and reasonable economic growth.”  He also added; “as County Commissioner, he will be a financial watchdog that will ensures good public policy”.  He feels that “when we prosper as a community, we shall prosper individually.”

Mr. Hammer also feels that the “drug epidemic” has destroy the fabric of many families in our community and has placed a heavy burdens upon the courts and confinement facilities. if elected he will prioritize teen and young adult prevention programs, treatment programs for offenders and punishment by incarceration if necessary, in that order.

Finally he stated that he will focus on infrastructure improvements. Good quality roadway projects, attractive public and private signage ordinances and smooth traffic flow will increase our ability to encourage existing corporations to build new additions to their facilities but also will attract out of the area corporations to relocate in Vanderburgh County.


  1. Any relation to Les Hammer (Ohio Valley Sound/Ohio Valley Communications and big real estate investor)?
    Isn’t one Mr. Hammer’s business partners in Roca Bar North the guy who owns Sheffer Construction & Development (who’s involved with Shyler’s BBQ and the Tom&Chee and Azzip Pizza building on N. Green River Road)?

  2. Trump/Russia, just another Democrat and Hillary lie:

    “The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.”


  3. Trump/Russia, just more lies from Hillary and the DNC:

    A YEAR of Clinton lies about the ‘golden showers’ dossier exposed as Hillary’s lawyer is under fire for falsely denying paying for it

    It’s claimed that Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias and other Democrats falsely denied to reporters their involvement in the ‘dirty dossier’
    Two New York Times journalists say they were lied to at every turn
    It’s now established that Clinton lawyer Marc Elias arranged for the campaign and the Democratic Party to pay a dirt-digging firm to produce the dossier
    ‘Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year,’ Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted

  5. Mr. Hammer is a successful business owner that will have a grasp on what will make local businesses prosper along with the community. We don’t need career politicians anymore. We need fresh ideas, not another lifelong appointed politician. What is Duck’s accomplishments besides being appointed to a thousand positions by political back scratching???
