Washington County Commission, District 4
A Grassroots Champion for Washington County
Washington County is changing. Communities and our economy are growing, but too many are still struggling to get ahead. Protecting what matters and providing for all of our residents requires leaders who will stand up for the community.
Kimberly has been an advocate in Washington County for decades, working to ensure government is accessible, accountable, and adapting to the needs of the community. She is running for the Washington County Commission, District 4 to provide a voice for the voiceless and tackle the challenges we face.
Grassroots Priorities for Washington County
Housing: We must balance our mix of housing and foster growth that includes all of us. Developers must pay their fair share for new housing developments to ensure we are also building housing affordable and accessible to working families.
Transportation: Managing congestion is critical to make it easier to get to work, school and community events. Planning for traffic, transit, bikeways, and sidewalks can make the roadways safer and our transportation system more efficient.
Homelessness: Affordable housing to help get people off the streets and out of encampments, and better accountability to ensure funds for homeless services are used effectively and humanely.
Children: Make the County a stronger partner in early education through Head Start and provide more support for after school programs.
Agriculture: We must preserve our farming economy and heritage to keep people healthy and connected to the land. Our land use policies must protect agricultural lands and soils.
