Kristin Mink

Montgomery County Council, District 5, MD

Kristin may be best known for confronting a Trump official in a restaurant, but the community organizer and former public school teacher has spent years fighting for social, racial, economic, and climate justice. She is a first-generation Chinese American, a lifelong Montgomery County resident, and the Senior Legislative Organizer for the Center for Popular Democracy, a nationwide nonprofit working with impacted communities and grassroots organizations to drive policy change.

As the first Asian ever elected to the Montgomery County Council, Kristin will deliver much-needed tenant protections, long-delayed infrastructure investment in our most diverse and most neglected areas, expanded healthcare access for low-income and undocumented residents, a reimagined system of public safety, expedited shifts to clean energy and sustainable development, and much more. Kristin has the policy experience, fearless integrity, and organizing skills and relationships needed to finally make Montgomery County a standard-setter in progressive policy.
