Kim Olson will travel Texas to speak about running for office and lessons from the 244 counties she visited while on the campaign trail. She addresses leadership, rural, and Texas issues.   Kim’s belief is that representative government should reflect the people's interests, and the only way that happens is by walking farms and fields. Kim visited folks where they work and live – their kitchens, local coffee shops, restaurants, town halls. She believes these are some of the best places to understand and appreciate Texans.
