We live in a great community. Every day I feel fortunate to be an Arlingtonian.
Together we can keep Arlington: Safe, Diverse, and Forward Thinking; ready for any challenges that come our way.
I am excited for this campaign, and I am looking forward to speaking with you and all of our neighbors. I will work hard everyday to earn your vote, and I hope to have your support at the caucus in May.
After graduating from James Madison University in 2001, I moved to Arlington and it became my true home. And, as I have in every place, I have lived my passion for community and public service throughout my more than 15 years as an Arlingtonian.
Community service has always been important to me, but I have also been drawn to the importance of public service.
Whether serving as the current president of the Leeway-Overlee Civic Association, volunteering with Head Start at Taylor Elementary, or being an EMT with the Falls Church Volunteer Fire Department, I have made service to others a priority in my life.
These experiences coupled with my professional background in Health IT have prepared me well to be a thoughtful and forward thinking member of the County Board.
Keeping Arlington Safe
I have served our community as a volunteer EMT, and currently serve as chair of the Emergency Preparedness Advisory Commission. In these roles I work with County staff and the public to ensure that our community is prepared for whatever comes our way.
I will make sure that the police, fire department , or medic unit arrives within four minutes whenever someone dials 911 in Arlington.
Keeping Arlington Diverse
If we truly value and promote diversity in our community and our schools, we will need to expand how we look at housing availability and and the affordability of living in Arlington.
As your County Board member, I will facilitate policy and zoning changes that will help us retain our young families and young professionals through more affordable housing opportunities.
Keeping Arlington Forward Thinking
Although Arlington County has made customer service a priority, our neighbors and our local businesses still need to navigate around and between multiple departments to do their business with our government. These extra hurdles make it harder to live and work here, and they make Arlington less competitive.
I will challenge County staff to further improve delivery of County services by developing measurable efficiency goals. I will also strengthen collaboration between all parts of County government, including our schools.
The most important way you can support Kim Klinger is by making sure you vote!
