Kate is a former city councilwoman in Norman, Oklahoma and small business owner who has the experience to advocate for better policy at the State Capitol. After graduating college, Kate worked in Constituency Services for U.S. Senator James Jeffords (I-VT), cutting through the complex bureaucracy that inhibits people from accessing critical services.
Kate’s passion to help led her to get involved with local animal welfare organizations in Norman and eventually to run for City Council. On Council, Kate addressed the most pressing issues impacting the daily lives of her neighbors while also raising a family and running several small businesses in core Norman. Through her work, Kate saw firsthand that government can work for the people when the right resources are available.
However, the state continues to pass policies that are bad for the people of Norman. Kate is taking the fight to the state capitol and will focus on policies that restore the voice of local concern to local governments, fight special interests to build better communities, and put people first in these divisive political times.
