"Knipper has consistently put the integrity of Kentucky’s electoral process first and foremost in his comprehensive plan for our commonwealth, and, with his 15+ years in cybersecurity, Knipper holds national security clearances with the FBI, Homeland Security, Armed Forces and several other government organizations, and was most recently asked by the United States Air Force Research Lab to assist in keeping America’s networks secure for our soldiers as well as to help maintain American technological superiority.
I could go on and on about why my friend, Steve Knipper, is the best person to clean up the mess that has become our Secretary of State’s office but go to his website and see for yourself. We need to make it right. Vote Knipper, Secretary of State, in 2019!"

-Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton, Upon naming Steve Knipper her Chief of Staff. 12/15/2015 (KY Forward Magazine)
"From the beginning of my term, I planned to be a very active Lieutenant Governor, meeting people across Kentucky in order to better understand the issues at hand. The demanding schedule I envisioned required an extraordinarily gifted Chief of Staff. After observing Steve Knipper's work ethic and resourcefulness during his 2015 campaign, he was an obvious choice.
Steve Knipper has served me well as Chief of Staff for over three years. His unique blend of project management experience, information technology expertise, political insight and problem solving skills have made it possible for me to be involved in entrepreneurship, veterans affairs, education, aerospace/aviation, robotics, and much more. My staff and I have assisted many people who turned to my office for help after finding none elsewhere. I'm proud that all my staffers have servants hearts, and we will continue joyfully serving Kentucky throughout the remainder of my term."
-Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton, 1/31/2019
