Cook for Vestavia Hills City Council

Leading Progress, Serving People

It's a Win!

Well, that was quick!

Qualification closed July 21, at 5pm, and I am unopposed. This means I am now duly elected for another four-year term. I want to thank everyone who supported me in my brief campaign. Hearing from you and knowing you want me to serve another four years encourages me, and for that I am grateful. 

I want to thank all my supporters, those who contributed to my campaign so that I was ready to deploy, if needed, and those who signed up for Team Kimberly. I am thankful I don't have to mount a campaign in the Time of Covid.

I also want to thank my cohorts, Paul Head, Rusty Weaver, Ashley Curry, and George Pierce. Together, we have served four years, making decisions that have increased prosperity and financial stability for our city. We are seeing wonderful things happen as a result of the decisions we have made together. It has been a great four years!

Last, thank you to Christopher Blazer, my campaign manager, and Gil Simmons, my treasurer, for helping me prepare a game plan in case it was needed. Thanks to my husband, Greg, for his loving support and encouragement.

A Leader When You Need One

On August 23, 2016, the citizens of Vestavia Hills turned out in record numbers to support me for City Council, Place 2. I worked hard to get your vote not because I deserved it, but because I wanted the opportunity to earn your trust. I demonstrated my commitment by knocking on more than 2,000 doors in our city to meet you and share my message of community engagement and transparency.

Over the last four years, I have continued to work hard, to earn your confidence in my ability to lead progress and serve the people of Vestavia Hills. My record shows I have made your voice stronger by asking smart questions. I have been a leader in bringing greater transparency to city government. I hope I have been a leader when you needed one.

In this campaign season, the public health situation prevents me knocking on doors, but I point to my record and qualifications. I am the city councilor who invested the time to earn my Certified Municipal Official designation, by taking 40 hours of Alabama League of Municipalities training so I could better understand how city government works. I always answer emails, listen carefully to concerns and dig to get the information that brings transparency to city government. I lead people to bring about their own positive change.

So, please talk to your neighbors. Listen to business owners. Watch videos of council meetings to hear how I serve you by asking the tough questions. I do the homework and illuminate truth. Find out for yourself how I work tirelessly to make our community a better place to live.

I ask for your vote on August 25, because I want to lead progress and serve you for another four years.
