Leadership that Listens

Kim Olson, 2018 Democratic Nominee, for Texas Commissioner of Agriculture

Kim Olson is traveling the state of Texas with plans to visit all 254 counties to hear what issues Texans care most about.  She's heard from farmers, ranchers, educators, and every day people who shop at the local co-op, farmers market, and grocery store.  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 visits 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.  Vote Kim Olson in the November 6, 2018, general election in Texas.
