Issues

Proven Leadership. Trusted Experience.

Kim believes that Richmond’s leaders must be responsive to the needs of its citizens. She will focus her efforts on the following issues:

  • Sound Fiscal Management: The City must be a thoughtful and transparent steward of our tax dollars. While on the School Board, Kim increased the level of transparency in all school operations and eliminated wasteful spending. As your City Council representative, she will do the same for the City.
  • Quality Schools: Kim is passionate that every child deserves a quality education. As an eight-year veteran of the School Board, she will make the right funding decisions on City Council regarding our children’s collective future.
  • Clean and Safe Neighborhoods: Taxpayers expect—and deserve— basic services performed in a timely manner. Kim knows that we must address these basic needs before money is spent on non-essential projects.
  • Sound Economic Development: Kim will support business development projects that create new jobs, increase tax revenues, and benefit the City as a whole.
