CITIZEN-FOCUSED, COMMUNITY SERVANT
As a DougCo resident for over 30 years and our hometown voice down at the State Capitol, Kim Ransom always fought for our community and families. After losing her husband in a tragic car accident over 20 years ago, Kim found herself as a single mom of four kids. She knows, better than most, the importance of faith, family and a strong close-knit community. Few people know and love Douglas County as deeply as Kim.
EFFECTIVE, NON-PARTISAN LEADER
While holding strong to our hometown values, Kim proved to be highly effective at reaching across the aisle to achieve broad bipartisan support. Bringing much needed balance and common sense to our state government, Kim was able to pass many bills. Few legislators in either party have proved more effective at solving our state’s most pressing needs.
State Rep. Kim Ransom served on many committees over her 4 terms, including the Health, Insurance, & Environment Committee and the Public Health Care & Human Services Committee. She knows how vitally important a strong, competitive and affordable health care market is for our families and for our thriving business climate.
Because of her honesty and integrity, Kim was appointed to serve on the Workplace Interim Study Committee to develop appropriate employee behavior guidelines for staff and elected officials working in the Capitol…following several high-profile sexual harassment allegations.
Known as a fiscal hawk, dedicated to protecting every tax dollar, Rep. Ransom was appointed to serve on the Legislative Audit Committee, which has financial oversight responsibility for every department in state government.
During her last 2 terms, Rep. Ransom served on the powerful Joint Budget Committee and as ranking member on the House Appropriations Committee. The six members of the JBC are responsible to write the state budget, so Rep. Ransom has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the budget process.
